Serving aerospace and defense manufacturers, suppliers and distributers since 2005, simpleQuE offers customized AS9100, AS9110 and AS9120, or ASA-100 (FAA AC00-56) consulting, internal auditing and training services.
Our lead AS9100 series consultants are International Aerospace Quality Group (IAQG) certified lead auditors with aerospace experience and know what it takes to help clients achieve their goal of establishing, implementing, maintaining, and improving their Quality Management System. As 3rd party auditors for registrars they have first-hand knowledge of what is required to pass an AS9100 certification assessment.
Using this knowledge and experience along with the required tools and techniques, all of our clients have had successful AS9100 certification audits on their first registration assessments and have attributed that mostly to our consulting and training. That’s a major accomplishment and many of these companies continue to use simpleQue for their internal audits and continuous improvement needs, freeing up limited resources and benefiting from the other advantages to outsourcing these services.
If you are already AS9100, AS9110 or AS9120 certified but are struggling to maintain and improve your Quality Management System, or just need to update the knowledge and skills of your quality team, simpleQuE can help. We offer several courses including AS9100 Internal Auditor Training that have proven to be very beneficial to our customers. Executive Overview, Requirements, Risk Management, and Problem Solving/Root Cause Analysis are some of the AS9100 Training Courses available that can be customized and held on site. We believe in experiential learning where you go beyond lecture and incorporate exercises to apply the learning, and use actual workplace examples from your company; thus allowing students to better learn, retain and apply their knowledge.

Aviation Suppliers Association (ASA) promotes safety, regulatory compliance and ethical business practices among aviation parts suppliers throughout the aviation community. Jim Lee is a presenter and attending the ASA Annual Conference and shares news about important changes to the standard.
The ASA-100 standard is going through a revision that will require all accredited companies to add to their quality manuals. The standard and checklist will be released October 1, 2017 and all audits afterJanuary 1, 2018 must be completed to the new 4.1 version.
- One of the changes requires that quality manuals or specific procedures contain requirements for drop shipments direct from a supplier to a customer, bypassing the distributor who sold the part.
- Another change follows ISO and requires that suspect and non-conforming material be addressed in a procedure. Material is to be segregated. If non-conforming material is shipped, the customer must be notified timely.
- All changes to the quality manual must be submitted to ASA by 1/1/2018.
Over 300 companies have received accreditation to the ASA-100 Quality System Standard and FAA Advisory Circular 00-56 since 1996.
