Should you adhere to these standards?
If you want to achieve exposure to the global aerospace supply chain and show your contribution to the highest quality levels of aerospace production and procurement, it’s perfect for you and your organization. This standard is used to certify a broad variety of manufacturers and innovators across the field from market giants including Spacex, Airbus, Raytheon, Lockheed Martin, L3 Communications, and the European Space Agency.
Are these standards applicable to you?
To please its clients, the aerospace industry must consistently deliver secure and effective goods on schedule, at a competitive cost that meets or exceeds the standards of consumers and regulators. It will be achieved when combining items coming from multinational vendors and supplying merchandise to different consumers with differing expectations for quality. A family of quality control program criteria for aerospace was established so as to maintain accuracy.
Under AS 9100, ISO 9001:2008 is entirely encompassed by these new criteria expressly applicable to aircraft safety issues. This is also the only requirement that recognizes the position of the regulatory authority, and therefore all of the “add-ins” are explicitly traceable to FAA Regulations FAR Part 21 (Products and Parts Inspection Procedures), Part 39 (Airworthiness Directives) and Part 45 (Identification and Registration Marking).
It should be noted, though, that AS 9100 remains complementary to the laws and regulations relevant and in the contract. Any company that applies an AS 9100 compliant quality program will ensure that the relevant specifications of its clients, regulatory agencies (FAA, JAA, etc.) and local, state, and national regulations are reflected in the framework documentation.
The value of the introduction of AS 9100 would inspire workers by identifying core positions and obligations. Price reductions will be achieved by increasing performance and quality because weaknesses in the product or service would be stressed. Upgrades may be created from this, resulting in less duplication, inadequate or rejected jobs and fewer grievances.
