Should you integrate AS9100

I manage a system that supports 13485, 14001, and 9001. I’m pursuing AS9100. With the new format for 14001 and 9001, I know I can easily integrate with AS9100. Because 13485 will continue to use the 2008 format would it be easier to create two separate management systems?

Answer:
I would not recommend having 2 systems for the following reasons:
1) ISO 13485 is the odd standard since it does not follow the same format as the others, so this would be the logical standard to maintain as a separate management system. However, you indicate that you already have this standard integrated with ISO 9001 & ISO14001 so there would be no benefit to have AS9100 as a separate system.
2) Even with ISO 13485 standard following a different format many of the support processes are still the same and have not really changed with the new requirements. These include internal audit, competence assessment, management review, documentation control, etc. Having a separate management system for AS9100 would mean you lose the benefit of integrating these support processes.
