AS9100 allows your organisation to improve controls and manage core business processes in the Aviation, Space and Defence (ASD) industry.

What is AS9100?

AS9100 is the international standard for Quality Management for organisations that develop, design, or provide products and services in Aviation, Space and Defence (ASD) industry. The standard provides suppliers with the requirements for creating and maintaining a comprehensive quality system for providing safe and reliable products to the ASD industry. AS9100:2016 Rev D replaced the earlier AS9100 version and now fully incorporates the entirety of the current version of ISO 9001, while also adding requirements related to product safety, counterfeit parts prevention and consideration of human factors. Major aerospace manufacturers and suppliers worldwide require compliance and/or certification to AS9100 as a condition of doing business with them. AS9100 also address many of the requirements of the SC21 standard. Major Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM’s) such as Airbus and Boeing are members of the IAQG group that make amendments and changes to the regulation and many OEMs mandate that suppliers have the approvals.

Why should it be considered?

AS9100 standardises quality management system requirements for companies involved with the aerospace industry and their supply chain. The standard is built of the general AS9100 standards for quality management systems, adding industry-specific guidelines for the safe development, production and distribution of quality aerospace products and parts.
The certification can be achieved by all levels of the supply chain by organisations around the world to improve quality and delivery performance, as well as reducing costs. This is achieved through reducing or eliminating the unique organisational requirements, effective implementation of the AS9100 Quality Management System and the application of good business practices.

Customer satisfaction and retention:

Core to AS9100 is a requirement to ensure that processes are in place for monitoring customer perception and satisfaction. Application of the quality management standard can provide invaluable information regarding customer satisfaction and engagement, which can lead to further opportunities to grow and secure relationships with customers.

Information and analysis

Information is essential to any business decision making. Implementing AS9100 will enable the identification of suitable metrics for your business processes, which will enable you obtain a true picture of operational and business performance. Not only will this tell you where things are working effectively, it will also identify pain points and provide a framework for addressing these.

One of the most significant benefits of the standard is the benefit of process standardisation. This will mean an analysis of the business and identification of the best and most efficient way of doing things. These standardised processes will then be implemented the processes and their application monitored therefore reducing the likelihood of costly errors and wastage.
