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 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.
