With the release of ISO 9001:2015 and AS9100 came more of a focus on risk-based thinking and supply chain management. Neither of these are new requirements but with correct understanding of concepts and practices they can bring great benefits to any organisation.

Presented by Michael Venner, Aerospace and Automotive Director at NQA Certification Ltd; a Global UKAS Accredited Certification Body. Although the talk will focus on AS9100 and the aerospace sector it will incorporate the requirements of ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and ISO 45001 into the discussion and highlight some of the benefits of effective supply chain management. Effective supply chain management will benefit any organisational sector not just aerospace.

They key topics will include:

  • Risk-based thinking methodology
  • Supplier quality management basics
  • Sub-tier supplier control
  • Supplier selection and capabilities
  • Product Performance
