  • Aerospace Signatures Requirements | Release Engineering

    How many signatures are required to release and revise aerospace engineering (drawings) and what documents, document sections drive this?  Can a single person sign for a release or a revision?   Can a single person sign in two places? I have seen different things in different businesses and want to know what is minimum requirement and where the come from.  For safety reason seems like two is the minimum (with the correct skills).

  • QA Manual format changes

    Our existing QA Manual written a few years ago would appear to be similar in structure to your suggested templates. I have come from a ISO9001 background where we built a lot of the QMS around process flow charts and split the relevant sections on a software platform designed to support such standards. In other words it wasn’t just one chunky manual. Each section was owned by its relevant process owner and document control was built into the support platform. So we deconstructed the QA manual into something more relevant and usable for the organisation. I don’t have a background in AS9100 and I’m trying to understand what the current accepted options for QMS document management are relating to AS9100 given Clause 4.4.2: Am I to understand that all the industry still stick to the traditional single QA Manual format?

  • AS9100 - 8.5.1 production and service provision

    We do some drawing updations and Engineering change management activities and we support our parent plant with respect to the above. Our certification scope is Design and Manufacturing of XYZ parts ... a) My clarification is whether the external auditor shall audit 8.5.1 clause requirements considering our Engineering activities comes under service provision. b) or suppose if the scope is Engineering support services and Manufacturing of XYZ parts. Then in this case only, the external auditor shall do an audit as per 8.5.1clause requirements for Engineering support activities. Requesting your support to clarify.
  • Enforcing the quality management system requirements

    My main question is about enforcing the quality management system requirements unto an organization that is required to adhere to them, but where almost all of the top management are negligent of these requirements.

    I've had trouble making people address internal audit findings related to their departments. Some findings that were classified as major have remained open and unaddressed for months. Constant reminder emails, personal conversations and conversations on meetings have had very little effect.

    To formulate the question, what are the possible ways and what authority can QA hold to force the organization to conform with the requirements.
