This SAE Aerospace Recommended Practice (ARP) establishes the general requirements when implementing any of the statistical product acceptance methods as defined in ARP9013/1, ARP9013/2, ARP9013/3, and ARP9013/4. This recommended practice 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 AS9100 plus requirements for retrievability, safety/critical characteristics, quality parameters, and that these parameters protect the customer. This recommended practice is to be used in conjunction with the variety of sampling strategies, statistical techniques, and process control methods of the ARP9013/1 through ARP9013/4 recommended practices as chosen by the organization.
Rationale: This document is Cancelled and Superseded by AS9138.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).
