Though quality and safety are always chief concerns in any industry, the greater risks and complexity of the aerospace market requires even more demanding and stringent standards.
As this industry responds to accelerated growth and rapid technological change, it is increasingly important to be sure that a quality management system is in place. Only by following the safeguards inherent in such a system, can companies protect the integrity of their manufacturing process. This is the essential defense that products destined for air and space need and deserve.
The AS9100 standard evolved from ARD9000, which was developed in 1996 by the American Aerospace Quality Group. In 1999, the AS9100 series was accepted by American, Asian and European aerospace industry suppliers.
Led by innovators in General Electric Aircraft Engines and Rolls Royce-Allison, suppliers withdrew from company specific standards and adopted AS9100. By 2001, the Federal Aviation Administration had recognized it as a comprehensive quality standard meeting federal regulations, and use it as the basis for a quality system standard in addition to AC056 Circular Advisory. The Boeing Company soon came on board.
Today, members of the International Aerospace Quality Group have implemented the standard internally, and they are requesting that their suppliers follow suit.
