Rolling with the Punches on a Continuous AS9100 Accreditation Program
"The AS9100 label is the gold standard for the aerospace manufacturing industry, but like everything else in the world, it must evolve to better adapt to upcoming developments. Genevieve Diesling writes about one such looming change, in her article for Quality Magazine: The AS9100 standard remains one of the most well-known and successful models of an industry-operated-and-driven standard in existence today. AS9100 was released in 1999 by the Society of Automotive Engineers and the European Association of Aerospace Industries and is regularly attuned to marketplace needs. Currently in its third incarnation—Revision C, which was released in 2009—aviation, space and defense companies all have a vested interest in the standard, and many require compliance with AS9100 as a requisite for doing business."
