To submit a change or to request a new document, the requestor should fill out the Document Request AS Template and submit it to his/her Department Manager. After reviewing the request, the Department Manager should submit AS1000-1 DOCUMENT REQUEST and any attachments to the Quality Assurance Manager, who should review the request to ensure the document conforms to the QMS. The Aerospace Document Request Template covers date, request #, description of problem, solution recommended, and more.
If the Quality Assurance Manager finds the requested document (change) does not conform to the QMS, the Quality Assurance Manager should return the AS1000-1 and attachments to the Department manager with an explanation (e.g., what is needed to make the document conform). If the requested document is determined to conform to the QMS, the Quality Assurance Manager should determine who else needs to review the new/changed document (e.g., the originator is not involved with the process the document pertains to) and submit the form, with attachments, to those individuals for their review and approval.
Upon receiving the necessary approvals, the Quality Assurance Manager should forward the original Request Template and attachments to Document Control. Document Control should update the document and generate a new Master document. Note that flow diagrams, engineering drawings, and other documents generated outside the company (e.g., supplier blueprints, industry standards) are to be submitted to Document Control with a Document Request AS Template.
