AS9102 First Article Inspection

The aviation, space, and defense industry established the International Aerospace Quality Group (IAQG).  The IAQG strives to improve quality and safety while reducing cost throughout the value stream. The AS9102 First Article Inspection standard applies to the complete value stream.

The FAI process requirements are used at all levels of the supply chain by organizations around the world.  This standard provides a consistent process and documentation requirements for verification of aviation, space, and defense product.

Its use should result in improved:
a) quality, b) schedule, and c) cost performance by:
the reduction or elimination of organization-unique requirements and wider application of good practices.

An FAI is intended to:
•Reduce future escapes, risks, and total costs.
•Help ensure safety of flight.
•Improve quality, delivery, and customer satisfaction.
•Reduce costs and production delays associated with product nonconformances.
•Identify product realization processes that are not capable of producing a conforming product, and
•Initiate and/or validate corrective actions.
