Mr. Richard Gallagher, Propulsion Systems Core Quality / Supplier Quality Leader, Boeing, will present the Keynote at the upcoming Aerospace Engine Supplier Quality (AESQ) Strategy Group Supplier Forum hosted by Pratt & Whitney April 10 in Hartford, CT. Gallagher will focus his remarks as the Voice of the Customer from the Boeing perspective. In addition, Mr. Ludovic Chevet, Lead Supply Chain Manager, Airbus, will deliver a Voice of the Customer from the Airbus perspective.
Supplier Forum attendees will learn 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.
Attendees will also be 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 and quality management requirements.
The Aerospace Engine Supplier Quality (AESQ) Strategy Group, a program of the SAE ITC, was established to develop, specify, maintain, promote and deploy quality standards specific to the Aerospace Engine supply chain. This work is intended to reduce customer specifics through a focused set of standards that integrate industry best practice and aerospace engine unique elements.
AESQ member companies include GE Aviation, Pratt & Whitney, Rolls Royce, Honeywell, Safran, GKN, PCC, MTU and Arconic.
Further information about AESQ including G-22 standards, future events, training opportunities and supporting documents can be found on AESQ's website at: http://aesq.saeitc.org/
