Statistical Product Acceptance Requirements
- Aerospace Standard
This SAE Aerospace Recommended Practice (ARP) establishes the general requirements when implementing any of the statistical product acceptance methods as defined in ARP9013/1, ARP9013/2, ARP9013/3, and ARP9013/4. This recommended practice also establishes the minimum content required to be covered in an organization's documented procedures that govern their application of statistical product acceptance methods. These general requirements and documented procedures apply the requirements of AS9100 plus requirements for retrievability, safety/critical characteristics, quality parameters, and that these parameters protect the customer. This recommended practice is to be used in conjunction with the variety of sampling strategies, statistical techniques, and process control methods of the ARP9013/1 through ARP9013/4 recommended practices as chosen by the organization.

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).
