RM13009 Compliance Assessment & Gap Analysis Checklist

One of the first tools developed by AESQ to support the aero engine supply chain is Reference Manual RM13009 Compliance Assessment. This free resource provides a structure for companies to begin to identify their current compliance to the new SAE AS13100™ Standard including a 3-Part Self-Assessment Checklist that can be used to document both compliance and any gaps that may exist needing addressing.

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 AESQ Quality Foundations Course to ensure complete understanding of the AS13100 requirements.

AS13100 Training Available

Learn how AS13100 minimizes requirements and improves overall product quality by focusing on the key quality systems and processes! Through the free Executive Overview video series and a selft-paced, AS13100 online Requirements Courseyour organization can gain key knowledge about a common quality language, how to gain compliance to AS13100 and the business value and benefit of the standard.

The three-day Qualtiy Foundations Course is designed to bring together key quality systems, processes, and methodologies to show how they work as part of a system to focus on defect prevention.  It is intended to support Quality Leaders at all levels in the organization in understanding how these tools and processes work and the characteristics of successful deployment.
