Deliverable Aerospace Software Supplement for AS9100A Quality Management Systems - Aerospace - Requirements for Software (Based on AS9100A)
- Aerospace Standard
The basic requirements of AS9100A apply with the following clarifications.
This document supplements the requirements of AS9100A for deliverable software. This supplement contains Quality System requirements for suppliers of products that contain deliverable embedded or loadable airborne, spaceborne or ground support software components that are part of an aircraft Type Design, weapon system, missile or spacecraft operational software and/or support software that is used in the development and maintenance of deliverable software. This includes the host operating system software including assemblers, compilers, linkers, loaders, editors, code generators, analyzers, ground simulators and trainers, flight test data reduction, etc., that directly support creation, test and maintenance of the deliverable software. Where Commercial-Off-The-Shelf (COTS) or non-developmental components are integrated into a deliverable product, the organization and the customer shall agree on the extent of applicability of this supplement. The organization shall demonstrate that the software development infrastructure is in compliance with AS9100.
This document also applies to firmware as defined herein. It does not apply to programmable logic devices, including fuse-link or reconfigurable parts such as Application Specific Integrated Circuits, (ASIC) or Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGA). ASICS AND FPGA’S are addressed by RTCA/DO-254.

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).
