AS9100D Operational Risk Management

Our process is VERY simple in nature and is LOW tech, there are no moving parts. All of our products are made to customer specs and we DO NOT do any product development. We produce fiberglass linings for aircraft cargo holds. I am unsure as to how to deal with section 8.1.1 of AS9100D. Attached is the section from our contract review procedure that deals with risk. Is this sufficient? We have been using this for years with no objection from our auditor.

Response:
With AS9100 Rev D the requirements of clause 8.1.1 are identical to the requirements of AS9100 Rev C Clause 7.1.2. The only difference is that the clause has been changed from being about "risk management" to being about "operational risk management". The reason for this is to separate it from the new requirement (from ISO 9001:2015), clause 6.1, on actions to address risks and opportunities. This new clause deals with identifying and addressing the risks for the QMS (not necessarily risk management, but risk assessment) where as the requirement you ask about is risk manag ement for the operational processes of the organisation only (for example, what risks are there in the product design, the tight delivery schedule, the assembly process, etc). In truth, this has not changed from before.

So in short, if the process you had in place before was acceptable, then it should remain acceptable now. The only difference in thinking is that now all of operations applies to products and services, so if there is a service you provide the customer (such as turning the customer drawing into computer files for your machines) then the risks from these services need to also be included in the operational risk management.
