SAE ITC Program AESQ Strategy Group Holds Supplier Forum in Trollhättan, Sweden

 Aerospace Engine Supplier Quality (AESQ) Strategy Group, an SAE ITC Program, held a Supplier Forum in Trollhättan, Sweden, April 11.

The event was hosted by GKN Aerospace and the keynote presentation was delivered by Emile Colongo, Head of Large Aircraft Propulsion for Airbus SAS. Colongo focused his remarks on Voice of the Customer within the aerospace industry.

Attendees to the forum learned the latest information on the SAE G-22 Committee’s AS13xxx series of aerospace engine supplier quality standards. This series was developed to set common quality requirements for the global aerospace engine supply chain to operate more efficiently.

Those in attendance also were able to share their views and experiences with the current set of standards as well as provide feedback for inclusion in several new standards currently under development including problem solving, internal audit requirements, process control and supplier management.
