AS9120 Certified Aerospace Suppliers Get Ready for 777X’s Launching

" “We’re seeing interest in other sectors as well, UAVs, it’s not just 777X support,” he said. “The Boeing supply chain is broader than that, but I think building off that momentum (the 777X) has the most interest.” In any commercial aerospace development projects, obtaining an AS9120 certification is crucial for both suppliers and manufacturers. Aside from becoming globally recognized as a reputable supplier, the certification will help increase customer satisfaction, reduce operating costs, and improve stakeholder relationships by streamlining production and operating system. Any aerospace companies, not just those that seek opportunities from the 777X launching, must consider getting AS9120 certification through accrediting firms like International Standards Authority, Inc."

ISO Registration: Improving Product Quality and Business’s Reputation

"A business can create and implement its own operation and management standards. However, these standards may not be aligned with existing laws governing business systems. It will help to get accreditation from recognized standards-creating bodies like ISO. Businesses with ISO registration conform to specifications, standards, and customer expectations in the most cost effective and efficient way. One of ISO’s most popular standards that has helped many businesses improve the quality of their products and services is the ISO 9001. Unlike the previous standards published by ISO, ISO 9001 is the only one against which an organization can be certified. It is designed to help organizations improve their operation and management systems through internal audits and management reviews."

ISO 9001 and Quality: Turning the Tables on Current Business Doctrine

"Turning the Tables Compliance with global standards will definitely involve a hefty investment, not just prior to the certification process but also until the next ISO 9001 certification. Be sure you’re financially ready to tackle this endeavor if it will ultimately mean more satisfied customers. Although ISO has a specific standard for customer satisfaction, ISO 9001 specifies the general layout. Experts say a loyal customer has more weight than several temporary ones since the former has been satisfied with the business’s products and services for years. Studies show that it’s more cost-effective to keep loyal customers than attract new ones."

How AS9100 Certification Helped Build a Fourth-Generation Fighter

"For Lockheed Martin to do business with these companies, it has to be AS9100 certified. In general, major companies around the world require other companies to be ISO-certified to conduct business with the former. This strict guideline on quality standards for the aerospace industry helps them distinguish who’s worthy of an investment. The AS9100, according to quality management experts, focuses more on how a product is made than what the product being made is. This simple concept virtually applies to other industry-specific standards. It gives customers (i.e. companies that worked with Lockheed Martin) an idea of how the company (i.e. Lockheed Martin) will use their resources."

India Bids to Become the First Government with ISO 9001 Certification

"Regardless of corruption risk, ISO’s open data movement should be strongly considered for a more accountable government. By making more information open to the public, problems can be aptly identified and effective solutions can be developed. Cities can start implementing an open data approach as a demonstration to its efficiency. In a way, governments are like corporations. Both have an organized structure, guidelines and regulations, and resources at their disposal. Getting ISO 9001 certification from services such as ISA Registrar will go a long way in public service. Only then can a government really be “of the people, by the people, and for the people.”"
