As we have briefly touched on in previous articles, AS 9100 certification is a widely recognized quality management system standard specifically for the aerospace industry. The requirements of AS 9100 are designed to meet the unique needs of companies that design, develop, produce, or service aerospace products.
If a precision CNC machining facility wishes to achieve AS 9100 certification, the machine shop must demonstrate its ability to consistently provide products and services that meet customer and regulatory requirements. The certification process requires a comprehensive audit of the company’s quality management system by an accredited third-party organization.
There are many benefits of doing business with an AS 9100 certified machine shop including:
- Improved customer satisfaction
- Reduced costs
- Competitive advantages
- Added level of quality assurance and accountability
Although AS 9100 is a recognized standard for the aerospace industry, partnering with a precision CNC machining facility that is both an ISO 9001 and AS 9100 certified machine shop regardless of your industry gives you the best chances of ensuring the best outcomes for your contract manufacturing and/or prototypes to production manufacturing projects.
