Gap Analysis Checklist

Download the Gap Analysis Checklist. One of the first tools developed by AESQ to support the aero engine supply chain is Reference Manual (RM) 13009 Compliance Assessment. This Reference Manual provides a structure for companies to begin to identify their current compliance to the new AS13100 standard including a 3-part Self-Assessment Checklist that can be used to document both compliance and any gaps that may need to be addressed (click below to download the Checklist).

Prior to conducting the Self-Assessment, it is highly recommended that a company’s Quality Leaders follow the SAE AS13100™ Requirements Training Course (on-line/ 10 hours) and/or the soon to be released AESQ Quality Foundations Course to ensure complete understanding of the AS13100 requirements.
