- Here is a rationale for the changes from the IAQG
This document reviews the changes from AS9100b to AS9100c in detail, but here is a summary:
Clause 1.1 (Scope) ADDITION
Scope extended beyond Aviation & Space to now include Defense
Clause 3 (New Definitions) ADDITION
Risk – an undesirable situation or circumstance that has both a likelihood of occurring and a potentially negative consequence. (Key to applying Risk Management)
Special Requirements – Those requirements which have high risks to being achieved thus, requiring their inclusion in the risk management process. Factors include:
- Product or Process Complexity
- Past Experience
- Product or Process Maturity
Critical Items – Those items having significant effect on the product realization and use of the product; including safety, performance, form, fit, function, producibility, service life, etc.; that require specific actions to ensure they are adequately managed. Examples include:
- Safety Critical Items
- Fracture Critical Items
- Mission Critical Items
- Key Characteristics
Clause 4.2.2 (Quality Manual Relationships) DELETION
Delete requirement to create a document showing the relationship between AS9100 requirements and the organizations documented procedures.
NOTE: Auditors need to identify appropriate documented procedures as an inherent part of the audit
Clauses 5.2 (Customer Focus/Satisfaction) ADDITION
Management responsibility for measuring ‘product conformity’ and ‘on-time delivery’ and for taking appropriate remedial actions
Requirement to evaluate customer satisfaction using specific QMS information, then develop plans that address deficiencies
New requirement for planning and managing product realization in a structured and controlled way to meet requirements at acceptable risk, within resource and schedule constraints.
New requirement to implement a risk management process applicable to the product and organization covering: responsibility, criteria, mitigation & acceptance
Clause 7.1.3 (Configuration Management)Moved from 4.3
Structured in line with ISO 10007 requirements
Clause 7.1.4 (Work Transfer) Moved from 7.5
The organization must have a process to plan and control the transfer activities
Expanded to cover permanent transfer
Clause 7.4.1 (Recognition of Supplier Quality Data) REVISION
Objective and reliable data from external sources may be used during supplier selection and evaluation
Clause 7.4.3 (Validation of Test Reports) DELETION
Where the organization utilizes test reports to verify
purchased product, the data in those reports shall be acceptable per applicable specifications. The organization shall periodically validate test reports for raw material.
Clause 126.96.36.199 (Process Verification) Moved from 188.8.131.52
Requirement to validate the production processes, documentation and tooling are capable of producing parts and assemblies that meet requirements. This process shall be repeated when changes occur that invalidate the original results (e.g. engineering or manufacturing
Clause 8.2.2 (Detailed Tools and Techniques) DELETION
Redundant to ISO 9001 text, too prescriptive.
Clause 8.2.4 (Sampling Inspection) REVISION
When the organization uses sampling inspection as a means of product acceptance, the sampling plan shall be justified on the basis of recognized statistical principles and appropriate for use (i.e., matching the sampling plan to the criticality of the product and to the process capability).
