Hi Gang,

Please forgive me if this is not the proper area for this inquiry, and please feel free to tell me where this post should go if this is not the right place.

I need some help regarding certain "process" questions, and advice on certain "auditor situations" regarding what auditors are and aren't allowed to do while conducting AS9100 audits.

I have answered all of these questions for myself but I'm not 100% confident, so I'd like to compare my answers to yours.

Please review the following questions below and give me an education where you see fit.

Thanks in advance......


1.) May AEA lead auditors suggest to Quality managers to rearrange their QMS process flow documents or make certain additions they think will be helpful during a stage 1, or stage 2, or surveillance audit?

2.) Are organizations mandated to have tools such as SIPOC's & Turtles, or are these options at managements discretion?

3.) Is the following statement correct, or incorrect:
"The intent of the 9100 planning of production realization is: set the quality goal and then take actions to achieve that goal, instead of monitoring what happens in production and then set the goal."

4.) Is the following statement correct, or incorrect: "Monitoring and measurement is not only for key characteristics."

5.) If nonconforming product is re-inspected by the same individual that rejected it, and that individual buys off the product – is the product considered compliant or not? Is that situation ok as long as the individual is a certified, recognized officer within the company to buy off product after an MRB has been conducted?

6.) Is the following statement correct, or incorrect:
"An Organization can only use customer designated suppliers based on first obtaining the customer approval."

7.) As an AEA lead auditor, are you allowed to: "offer examples of other organizations that have had similar issues with their supplier development processes since doing this would add value to your client's audit."

8.) As an AEA lead auditor, are you allowed to: "suggest to the quality manager how after discovering some additional interactions between processes how they could improve their process descriptions."

9.) Does an organization making an application to become AS9100 certified: "have to have 12 months of performance data from a QMS based on 9100?

10.) Does an organization making an application to become AS9100 certified: have to prove or show that they "currently" have aviation, space or defense customers before they may be audited to 9100?

11.) If the corporate headquarters where administrative & purchasing work (of a multi-site company) already has ISO 9001 certification, and they are making an application to have their manufacturing site (in another location) accredited to AS9100 - can their corporate site maintain its ISO 9001 cert, or does it also have to undergo a stage 1 AS9100 audit?

12.) Which processes (in particular) should an AEA lead auditor focus on, regarding writing PEAR's.

Thanks again....

Get another auditor - this auditor is not following nor is the auditing fto the the standard.

Get a hold of your Registrar and ask the same question.

Great question and we need to clean the environment of auditor with agenda or misinformed.
