AESQ Quality Management System Requirements for Aero Engine Design and Production Organizations
This standard establishes supplemental requirements for 9100 and 9145 and applies to any organization receiving it as part of a Purchase Order or other contractual document from a customer.
AS13100 also provides details of the Reference Materials (RM13xxx) developed by the SAE G-22 AESQ committee and listed in Section 2 - Applicable Documents, that can also be used by organizations in conjunction with this standard.
This standard has been created by the SAE G-22 Aerospace Engine Supplier Quality (AESQ) Technical Committee to harmonize and simplify supplier quality requirements that are in addition to the requirements of 9100 Quality Management Systems - Requirements for Aviation, Space, and Defense Organizations and 9145 Advanced Product Quality Planning and Production Part Approval Process.
Previously the Aerospace Engine Manufacturers based their supplier quality requirements on 9100 but had differing supplemental requirements and guidance albeit with largely the same intent. These supplemental requirements originate from the need to meet Regulatory, Customer, Industry, and Business requirements that are not explicitly covered by 9100 and 9145.
This standard sets out to create a common set of supplemental requirements with common reference materials to improve understanding, efficiency, and performance. While significantly simplifying the businesses of suppliers with multiple customers, the primary intent of this new standard is to improve overall product quality by focusing on the key systems and processes currently deterring consistent aerospace engine product quality.
These common supplemental requirements aim to raise the bar for anticipated performance in these key areas, and therefore detailed guidance is provided to ensure clarity of expectations.
