AS9100D Training

AS9100D Implementation Fundamentals

This 16-hour AS9100D training course is designed to provide training on the implementation of the requirements for a quality management system (QMS) based upon the AS9100D standard. AS9100D includes all the requirements of ISO 9001:2015 along with approximately 105 additional requirements specific to the Aviation, Space and Defense industry.

This in-depth, training course examines the requirements and intent of each clause and subclause of AS9100D, including audit evidence required to demonstrate conformity to AS9100D requirements. It is designed for AS9100D implementation team members, auditors, and other representatives from key functional groups involved in the organization’s AS9100D quality management system.

Participants will gain an understanding of these requirements and standards. Participants will also understand the AS9100D standard’s effect on an organization, and how to implement and roll out a QMS.

What is the format of AS9100?
AS9100 uses a process approach to deploy the requirements of the standard.  Organizations are asked to:

  1. Review and determine its critical processes
  2. Define each process inputs and outputs
  3. Create documentation necessary to show effective control of the process (Note that this does not necessarily mean creating a procedure.)
  4. Creating and analyzing measures of process performance for use in determining either corrective action or continual improvement

What are the benefits of AS9100 training?

  1. Fosters improved product & process quality.
  2. Provides additional confidence for global sourcing.
  3. Ensures a global quality system approach in the supply chain for supplier/subcontractor service consistency.
  4. Reduces variation, waste and improves the overall efficiency in production levels.
  5. Lessens the number of second party audits.
  6. Provides a common platform to address worldwide quality system requirements.
