Statistical Product Acceptance Requirements Using Process Control Methods
- Aerospace Standard
ARP9013/3 recommended practice specifies a product acceptance system using process control methods. Its purpose is to assure conformance for specified characteristics. Use of process control techniques for product acceptance requires maintaining process stability and capability. A stable and capable process is the best assurance of conforming hardware for the customer. There can be lower inspection costs associated with a process control acceptance approach.

The SAE G-14 Americas Aerospace Quality Standards Committee (AAQSC) committee addresses all facets of aerospace quality-design, maintenance, and in-service experience. The group is dedicated to creating, preparing, and maintaining all relevant specifications, standards, and requirements for aerospace quality systems. Improvement in quality through variance reduction in processes and procedures is the continual focus of the committee. AAQSC aims to establish and maintain a dynamic cooperation based on trust between aerospace companies on initiatives to make significant improvements in quality performance and reductions in cost throughout the value stream. Initial focus regarding this objective is to continuously improve the processes used by the supply chain to deliver consistently high quality products, thereby reducing non-value added activities and costs. Other objectives for this committee are: to establish commonality of quality standards, requirements, tools and techniques; start a process of continuous improvement at suppliers; create methods to share results; and implement plans to bring the initiative to life (e.g., obtain regulatory concurrence).Participants in the SAE G-14 committee include OEMs, suppliers, processors, consulting firms, government, and others across the aerospace and defense industries. The AAQSC is a cooperative organization within the aerospace industry in the Americas (including North, Central and South Americas).
