Did you know that National Aerospace Week was established in 2010 as an opportunity for the aerospace and defense industry and its supporters to recognize the enormous contributions that the industry makes to America’s economy, competitiveness and national security?
During National Aerospace Week, the Americas Aerospace Quality Group (AAQG) / G-14 AASQC Conference is the perfect venue to witness final launch preparations for the new AS9100 series of standards. It’s also an opportunity to learn what is on the horizon from various aerospace experts including those representing Boeing, Lockheed Martin and Northrup Grumman, to name a few.
As a member of the SAE G-14 Americas Aerospace Quality Standards Committee (AAQSC), simpleQue’s Senior Director, Blake Russell is attending the G-14 Meetings in Charlotte, NC. The AAQSC is the SAE standards writing committee responsible for developing the aerospace quality standards.
Blake shares some of the key points from the Americas Requirements for the AS 9100 Series Team meetings:
WHAT: There are actually 24 aerospace standards within the 9100 series that include the 9100, 9101, 9110, and 9120
Additional examples: AS9136 Root Cause/ Problem Solving, AS9146 FOD, etc.
WHY: The 2016 strategy is to continually improve the architecture of the Aerospace Quality Management System (AQMS) globally
Also, harmonization of customer requirements with the AS9100 requirements
HOW: IAQG/AAQG will offer free webinars and deployment materials for AS9100D (2016) when released. http://www.sae.org/iaqg/organization/9100.htm
