Why is AS9100 important?
The aerospace community has specific requirements that need to be taken into account, and the QMS needs to incorporate these critical requirements. AS9100 is for aerospace suppliers, and your customers want to know that you are taking the steps necessary not only to meet these aerospace-specific requirements, but to improve the quality of your products and services and to enhance customer satisfaction, and implementing a QMS according to the requirements of AS9100 can do just that. By managing, controlling, and auditing your own processes, as well as having an outside certification body verifying that your QMS meets the requirements, your customers can know that everything is well in hand.
As the internationally recognized standard for aerospace Quality Management Systems, AS9100 is based on seven quality management principles that are recognized as being necessary to make a Quality Management System work. Your customers will be content to know that your QMS is also based on these principles.
There are 4 key requirements in AS9100 designed specifically for the aerospace industry:
1. Planning for Product Realization
AS9100 puts an additional emphasis on risk management and assessment “in the project and configuration management aspects of production and control of work transfers between facilities and suppliers,” Quality writes.
2. Purchasing/Purchased Product
These requirements deal with supplier control, including information presented to vendors and controls placed on purchased products that could be released prior to verification.
3. Design and Development
This section involves the steps for design verification and validation along with rules for documentation and testing on both stages.
Design verification involves crafting a piece on paper and calculating all specifications, inputs, metrics and regulations to see where the product meets – or needs to meet – industry expectations.
Validation involves the formation of a prototype – a first production unit or engineered model – to illustrate the initial run of a new and complex design.
4. Product Monitoring and Measurement Rules
These regulations cover quality measuring capacities, including measures for rejection and for non-conforming processes.
In 2018, Revision D added the following elements to AS9100:
- Counterfeit Parts Prevention
- Risk clause was merged with the new ISO 9001 risk requirements along with an increased emphasis on risks in operational processes
- Awareness clause was added with reinforced requirements for awareness of individual contribution to product and service quality and safety along with ethical behavior
- Human Factors are included as a consideration in nonconformity management and corrective action
- Configuration Management was clarified and improved to address stakeholder needs
