Statistical Product Acceptance Requirements Using Process Control Methods
ARP9013/3 recommended practice specifies a product acceptance system using process control methods. Its purpose is to assure conformance for specified characteristics. Use of process control techniques for product acceptance requires maintaining process stability and capability. A stable and capable process is the best assurance of conforming hardware for the customer. There can be lower inspection costs associated with a process control acceptance approach.
Rationale: This document is Cancelled and Superseded by AS9138. AS9138 is an upgrade and replacement for the Aerospace Recommended Practice (ARP) 9013-series of documents (i.e., ARP9013, ARP9013/1, ARP9013/2, ARP9013/3, ARP9013/4) prepared and published by the Americas Aerospace
Quality Group (AAQG) in 2005. Technically equivalent standards are published in all International Aerospace Quality Group (IAQG) sectors (i.e., Americas, Asia-Pacific, Europe).
