Aerospace Design Change Procedure AS9100
The Design Change Procedure AS9100 outlines the procedure for requesting changes to company products or processes and implementing those changes. The aerospace design change procedure also assures orderly, controlled, and effective changes to every aspect of the design of the company products. (4 pages, 867 words)
A design change procedure starts with a request. Typically, a request for design change will either come from the customer or from within the company. As a rule, customers will formally submit design change requests, supplying the necessary supporting documents (technical drawings, specification data, flow diagrams, etc.). In the case of the latter, changes to design may come about as a result of product design & development testing or in production.
Design Change AS9100 Responsibilities
Design Engineers are responsible for ensuring that all product design changes are recorded, communicated, and implemented; the department is also responsible for evaluating change requests and determining appropriate responses.
Document Control or an individual designated by Management is responsible for assuring that obsolete/superseded documents are removed from the work environment and only current revisions of necessary documents are available at point of use.
