The lack of focus on manufacturing management has led to significant cost overruns, schedule delays, and quality problems. In response, the SAE G-23 Manufacturing Management Committee developed and published AS6500, Manufacturing Management Program. The standard requires proven manufacturing management practices with the goal of delivering affordable and capable systems. It’s applicable to all phases of a system acquisition life cycle and may be specified in a contract on any program with manufacturing content.
This on-demand course discusses the background and history of AS6500, why the standard was created, and how it relates to other SAE standards. The presentation explains AS6500’s detailed requirements, lists the benefits of its adoption, and provides instructions on how to implement the standard within your organization.
AS6500 is applicable across the mobility industry and is gaining momentum in the aerospace industry with suppliers interested in upgrading and improving their existing processes and procedures.
While this course is approximately 1 hour, 10 minutes in length, the estimated time to completion is 90 minutes.
