The Importance of AS9100 and ISO Registrations
The ISO 9000 family of standards is among the most widely implemented in the industry. It is not the only quality management system (QMS) available to businesses, but it has been adopted globally and is the certification of choice among major purchasers.
Reasons For A Registration
Quality management and control are essential no matter the industry. In every institution and company in every industry, workflow, processes, and applications must be subject to analysis, testing, and review in order to achieve the best product for your customers and the highest return on investment for your enterprise.
Quality management systems are enterprise-wide collections of business practices and processes geared towards achieving quality policies and objectives. These policies are implemented throughout an organization’s entire structure, processes, procedures, and resources.
The focus of a QMS involves team cooperation and dynamics, sustainability, and transparency initiatives. Investor confidence, customer satisfaction, and perceived quality have increasingly been tied to the continuous improvement processes that a QMS incorporates. Industry certifications not only lead to increased sales, customer retention and satisfaction, but also efficient processes across the enterprise.
ISO 9000 deals with the eight principles of quality management. These are customer focus, leadership, involving people (or valuing staff), a process approach, a system approach to management, continual improvement, a factual approach to decision making, and a mutually beneficial relationship with a supplier.
ISO 9001 determines the criteria to which a QMS should adhere. A registration in ISO 9001 can be obtained by companies of any size, and ensures that customers always receive products and services of consistent quality, which promises larger benefits for every aspect of the business.
AS9100 is a similar QMS, but unlike ISO 9000 and ISO 9001, it is specific to the aerospace industry. AS9100 incorporates ISO 9000, albeit with additional requirements related to the quality of products in aerospace. Major manufacturers and suppliers in the industry require AS9100 certification in order to work with a company.
