AS9145: Requirements for Advanced Product Quality Planning and Production Part Approval C1917

Topics: Quality, Safety & Maintenance

Production and continual improvement of safe and reliable products is key in the aviation, space and defense industries. Customer and regulatory requirements must not only be met, but they are typically expected to exceeded requirements. Due to globalization, the supply chain of this industry has been expanded to countries which were not part of it in the past and has complicated the achievement of requirements compliance and customer satisfaction. The IAQG has established and deployed the AS9145 Standard, as a step to help achieve these objectives. The hope is to also reduce costs worldwide by enforcing these activities through the regional representatives: Americas (AAQG), Europe (EAQG) and Asia/Pacific (APAQG).

AS9145 standardizes the requirements for the Product Development Process (PDP) through the use of APQP and PPAP methodologies. The establishment of common requirements, for use at all levels of the supply chain, should result in the elimination or reduction of organizational unique requirements, and the resulting variation inherent in the multiple expectations placed upon suppliers in the past.
