Program Management/Systems Engineering Guidelines for Managing the Transition to Lead-Free Electronics
- Aerospace Standard
If the program is required to implement Pb-free technology (contract requirement, environmental regulation, etc), then the program manager/lead systems engineer will need to assess the impact of in-house transition with respect to design (performance of products using Pb-free) and process (processes to build Pb-free products).
If the program purchases COTS (Commercial-off-the-Shelf) items for its products/systems, then there is a very good chance that these items will contain Pb-free solder or Pb-free finishes on parts, printed wiring boards (PWBs), or CCAs.
Appendix A describes a matrix of product tier level versus associated risks with respect to a Pb-free transition.
Appendix B contains links to the European Union Directives and Executive Order 13148.
Appendix C contains a General Program Manager Checklist for Dealing with Pb-free Issues that summarizes the content of the GEIA-HB-0005-1 (this handbook).
Appendix D contains a General Manufacturing Process Assessment Checklist to assess supplier compliance to GEIA-STD-0005-1.
Appendix E describes recommended program language to assure performance, reliability, airworthiness, safety, and certifiability of Pb-free product(s).

Pb-free Risk Management Committee for ADHP Committee develops standards and specifications for Pb-free electronics risk management for the aerospace, defense and high performance electronics industries. The committee also provides input to government and other industry standards related to Pb-free electronics risk management. It does not develop or revise workmanship and manufacturing standards.
