Enhance the Organization’s Potential with APQP and PPAP (AS9145) – Infuse your AS9100 QMS with AS9145

by Craig Thompson,Dave Watkins published on October 06, 2020

Moving forward in Aerospace there are two key documents, AS9100 (the latest revision to the QMS) and AS9145 (Aerospace’s approach to Risk Mitigation). Both standards, when combined are beginning to have a significant impact in the Aerospace industry. These standards integrated into one system are helping companies develop and implement robust business strategies both internally and to the supply base.

This webinar will address some best-in-class concepts and solutions for implementing APQP/PPAP systems in suppliers in all key industries, woven seamlessly into an existing QMS, even basic ISO 9001. Our goal is to illustrate the benefits of APQP/PPAP in the supply base, to avoid some of the errors of the past in this effort, dispel some common concerns, and assist companies to become industry leaders through teaching, cooperation, and communication. Watch the recording to know how AS 9145 in the supply chain can benefit you even before it becomes a required certifiable standard.
