AS13002: Qualifying an Alternate Inspection Frequency Plan

AS13002 defines the process for qualifying an Alternate Inspection Frequency Plan for suppliers within the aero-engine sector.  This two-day course will provide common requirements for developing and qualifying an alternate inspection plan, other than 100% inspection of all features.  This course is designed to cover the basic elements of the process to be applied to design characteristics (as defined in AS9102), and parts or inspection processes as defined by the purchaser. Beginning with documentation requisites, it will also cover characteristics and controls definition, data pack preparation, purchaser evaluation and approval, planning execution and monitoring, reaction planning, change control and control types.

What Will You Learn

By attending this seminar, you will be able to identify and explain:
  • Inspection frequency plan terminology
  • Training requirements
  • Inspection frequency requirements
  • Inspection frequency process
  • Control types
  • Required documentation
  • Example plans

Is This Course For You

This course is intended, as stated in AS13002, to meet requirements for personnel developing, qualifying and Implementing Inspection Frequency Plans where characteristics are not 100% inspected.
