AS9138: Aerospace Series – Quality Management Systems Statistical Product Aerospace Requirements has been published by SAE International, a global association committed to being a knowledge source for the engineering profession.
AS9138 is an upgrade and replacement for the Aerospace Recommended Practice 9013-series of documents originally prepared and published by the Americas Aerospace Quality Group in 2005. The new document aims to standardize and streamline requirements and flexible resources on statistical techniques for product acceptance across the diversity of aerospace industry processes.
The document also establishes the general requirements for implementing statistical product acceptance methods, along with the minimum content required to be covered in an organization’s documented procedures that govern their application of statistical product acceptance methods.
AS9138 complements SAE International’s AS13002 Requirements for Developing and Qualifying Alternate Inspection Frequency Plans standard. IAQG/SAE G-14 Committee and SAE G-22 AESQ Committee worked in collaboration to ensure proper alignment of these standards.
