Requirements for a COTS Assembly Management Plan
- Aerospace Standard
At one end of the spectrum are COTS assemblies whose design, internal parts2, materials, configuration control, traceability, reliability, and qualification methods are at least partially controlled, or influenced, by ADHP customers (either individually or collectively). An example at this end of the spectrum is a VME circuit card assembly.
At the other end of the spectrum are COTS assemblies whose design, internal parts, materials, configuration control, and qualification methods are not controlled, or controllable, in any way by ADHP customers (either individually or collectively). An example is a disk drive targeted for an industry other than ADHP use. It is critical for the Plan owner to (1) review and understand the design, internal parts, materials, configuration control, reliability and qualification methods of all “as-received” COTS assemblies3, and their capabilities with respect to their application in the intended System and environment; (2) identify risks, and where necessary, (3) take additional action to mitigate the risks associated with the performance and reliability of the COTS assembly in the ADHP system.

Avionics Process Management Committee (APMC) develops process management standards for systems and equipment used in the field of avionics. Avionics includes electronics used in commercial, civil and military aerospace applications. The committee also provides input to government and other industry organizations and standards. APMC supports the US Technical Advisory Group (US TAG) for International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) Technical Committee 107, Process Management for Avionics.
