CURRENT
ARP9009A
This SAE Aerospace Recommended Practice (ARP) specifies for quality requirements that are additive to a procurement document or contract, where an organization: a needs to provide additional guidance for suppliers and other organizations in the delivery of products, goods and services in accordance with stated quality demands, and b needs to provide information in addition or in absence of existing quality system requirements to provide the assurance of conformity to customer and applicable regulatory requirements. NOTE: In this ARP, the term ‘product’ applies only to the product intended for, or required by, a customer.

Aerospace Series - Quality Management Systems - Nonconformance Data Definition and Documentation

2012-08-16
HISTORICAL
AS9131C
This standard defines the common nonconformance data definition and documentation that shall be exchanged between an internal/external supplier or sub-tier supplier, and the customer when informing about a nonconformity requiring formal decision. The requirements are applicable, partly or totally, when reporting a product nonconformity to the owner or operator, as user of the end item (e.g., engine, aircraft, spacecraft, helicopter), if specified by contract. The process of exchanging, coordinating, and approving nonconformance data varies with the multiple relationships and agreements among all parties concerned. The information provided by this standard forms guidelines for submitting and managing of data through accurate communication. The main objective is to provide the definition of a data set that can be integrated into any form of communication (e.g., electronic data interchange, submission of conventional paper forms).

Aerospace Series - Quality Management Systems - Variation Management of Key Characteristics

2012-08-16
CURRENT
AS9103A
This standard is primarily intended to apply to new parts and products, but can also be applied to parts currently in production. The standard shall be applicable to all production processes, that influence the variation of KCs, as well as maintenance processes in which KCs are identified. It applies to assemblies and all levels of parts within an assembly, down to the basic materials including castings and forgings, and to organizations that are responsible for producing the design characteristics of the product. It does not apply to lab-scale, pilot, or pre-production processes. However, particular management of some KCs might be required using other methods than those described in the standard, during these phases of a program, when required by the customer or deemed appropriate by the organization (e.g., Engineering department requirement).

Aerospace Series - Quality Management Systems Statistical Product Acceptance Requirements

2018-01-20
CURRENT
AS9138
This standard establishes requirements when implementing statistical product acceptance methods to meet defined risk requirements. This standard also establishes the minimum content required to be covered in an organization’s documented procedures that govern their application of statistical product acceptance methods. These general requirements and documented procedures apply the requirements of the 9100/9110/9120 quality management system standards, in addition to establishing requirements for retrievability, safety/critical characteristics, and quality parameters that protect the customer.

Aerospace Series - Root Cause Analysis and Problem Solving (9S Methodology)

2016-11-08
CURRENT
ARP9136
The objective of any organization, as part of continual improvement, is to reduce the number of issues (i.e., undesirable conditions, defects, failures) and to minimize their impact on quality, delivery performance, and cost. This includes having processes in place to detect and eradicate significant and recurrent issues, which implies having well identified problems, a common understanding of their impact and associated root causes, and having defined and implemented adequate actions so that these problems, including similar issues will not happen again.

Aerospace Series – Notice of Change (NOC) Requirements

2015-03-12
CURRENT
AS9016A
The aviation, space, and defense industries rely on the development and manufacture of complex products comprised of multiple systems, subsystems, and components each designed by individual designers (design activities) at various levels within the supply chain. Each design activity controls various aspects of the configuration and specifications related to the product. When a change to design information is requested or required, the change has to be evaluated against the impacts to the higher-level system. Proposed changes to design information that the design activity identifies to be minor and have no effect on their product requirements or specifications have the potential to be concurrently implemented and approved, where authorized to do so. Changes that affect customer mandated requirements or specifications must be approved prior to implementation.

CURRENT
AS9145
This standard establishes requirements for performing and documenting APQP and PPAP. APQP begins with conceptual product needs and extends through product definition, production planning, product and process validation (i.e., PPAP), product use, and post-delivery service. This standard integrates and collaborates with the requirements of the 9100, 9102, 9103, and 9110 standards. The requirements specified in this standard are complementary (not alternative) to contractual and applicable statutory and regulatory requirements. Should there be a conflict between the requirements of this standard and applicable statutory or regulatory requirements, the latter shall take precedence.

CURRENT
AS9132B
This standard defines uniform quality and technical requirements relative to metallic parts marking performed using "data matrix symbology" within the aviation, space, and defense industry. ISO/IEC 16022 specifies general requirements (e.g., data character encodation, error correction rules, decoding algorithm). In addition to ISO/IEC 16022 specification, part identification with such symbology is subject to the requirements in this standard to ensure electronic reading of the symbol. The marking processes covered by this standard are as follows: Dot Peening Laser Electro-Chemical Etching Further marking processes will be included, if required. Unless specified otherwise in the contractual business relationship, the company responsible for the design of the part shall determine the location of the data matrix marking. Symbol position should allow optimum illumination from all sides for readability. This standard does not specify information to be encoded.
