AS9100C 2009 Internal Audit Program

AS9100 is a quality standard for aerospace, aviation, space, and defence sectors.

Introduction to Audit Program

Our Audit Program has five parts:

  1. AS9100C(2009) Compliance Audit Program

  2. AS9100C(2009)  Policy Audit Program

  3. AS9100C(2009) Procedures Audit Program

  4. AS9100C(2009) Process Audit Program

  5. AS9100C(2009) Records Audit Program

Each of these five programs will be discussed below.

We begin with a table of contents. It shows how we've organized
our Internal Audit Program. While the content of each program is
different, the following table shows that each one of our five audit
programs is organized in the same way.

This page will introduce our AS9100C(2009) Internal Audit Program.
However, it will not present the complete audit program. Instead, it will
show you how our audit program is organized and it will explain how it
works. Once you've examined our approach, we hope you'll consider
purchasing our complete internal quality management audit program.

Overview of AS9100C Compliance Audit Program

Our Compliance Audit Program uses questions to list the AS9100C
quality management system requirements. Like AS9100’s five sets
of requirements, our Audit Program consists of five separate
questionnaires:

  1. General Audit Questionnaire

  2. Management Audit Questionnaire

  3. Resource Audit Questionnaire

  4. Realization Audit Questionnaire (SAMPLE)

  5. Remedial Audit Questionnaire

Our audit starts with section 4 because AS9100C requirements start there.

In general, our Compliance Audit Program asks two types of questions:
questions that specify
AS9100C mandatory quality management system
requirements and questions that specify requirements that may be excluded
or ignored under some circumstances. Questions that point to mandatory
requirements allow two response options: YES or NO, while questions that
specify requirements that may be excluded offer three response options:
YES, NO, or N/A. An N/A response option is provided because you may
exclude or ignore some requirements if you can justify doing so.

YES answers mean you’re in compliance with the standard, NO answers
mean you’re not in compliance, and N/A answers mean that a question is
not applicable in your case. NO answers to Compliance Audit questions
point to compliance problems (also known as nonconformities or
noncompliances).

Once you’ve answered all the Compliance Audit Questions, you’re ready
to summarize your audit, calculate compliance scores, draw general audit
conclusions, and make and implement recommendations to address your
compliance problems.


Overview of AS9100C Policy Audit Program

Our AS9100C Policy Audit covers the following topics:

  1. Management

  2. Documentation

  3. Usability

  4. Training

  5. Implementation

  6. Changes

Start by selecting a policy that you want to audit. Then prepare your Policy
Audit Profile. Before you begin answering policy audit questions, please
record the name of this policy at the top of the Policy Audit questionnaire.
This will help to maintain the focus of your audit.

Three response options are provided: YES, NO, and N/A. NO answers point
to policy performance problems, YES answers identify positive areas, while
N/A responses identify questions that are not applicable in your situation.

Once you’ve answered all the audit questions, you’re ready to summarize
your internal audit, calculate policy performance scores, draw general audit
conclusions, and make and implement recommendations to address your
policy performance problems.


Overview of AS9100C Procedures Audit Program

Our AS9100C Procedures Audit covers the following topics:

  1. Management

  2. Documentation

  3. Content

  4. Compliance

  5. Usability

  6. Training

  7. Control

  8. Records

  9. Changes

Start by selecting a procedure that you want to audit. Then prepare
your Procedures Audit Profile. Define the scope of your audit, identify
the participants, and prepare a brief audit plan.

Before you begin answering procedures audit questions, please record
the name of this procedure at the top of the Audit questionnaire. This
will help auditors to maintain the focus of their audit.

Three response options are provided: YES, NO, and N/A. NO answers
point to procedural performance problems, YES answers identify positive
areas, while N/A responses identify questions that are not applicable.

Once you’ve answered all the audit questions, you’re ready to summarize
your audit, calculate procedural performance scores, draw general audit
conclusions, and make and implement recommendations to address your
procedural performance problems.

Clause 4.1 of AS9100C makes it clear that organizations must identify
and manage the processes that make up their quality management
systems. Therefore, the process approach is now a requirement.

The process approach is a management strategy. When managers use
a process approach, it means that they manage the processes that make
up their organization, the interaction between these processes, and the
inputs and outputs that “glue” these processes together.

But, what’s a process, and what are inputs and outputs? Briefly put, a
process uses inputs to generate outputs. Or, more precisely, a process is
an integrated set of activities that uses resources to transform inputs into
outputs. A system exists whenever several processes are interconnected
using such input-output relationships.

Processes are interconnected because the output from one process
becomes the input for another process. In effect, processes are “glued”
together by means of such input-output relationships. And because the
output of one process becomes the input of another process, inputs and
outputs are really the same thing. In general, there are three basic types
of inputs/outputs: products, services, and information.

Below you will find a list of some of the processes that can
be audited using our Process Audit Program:

  1. Quality management process

  2. Resource management process

  3. Training and awareness process

  4. Product purchasing management process

  5. Design and development process

  6. Risk management process

  7. Work transfer control process

  8. Production management process

  9. Service provision process

  10. Product management process

  11. Customer relationship management process

  12. Internal quality management audit process

  13. Monitoring and measuring process

  14. Management review process

Of course, this does not exhaust the list of possible processes that could
be audited using our approach. Your organization’s processes will certainly
include many more processes that we have failed to mention.

Start your audit by selecting a process. Then prepare your Process Audit
Profile. Define the scope of your audit, prepare an audit plan, and identify
the inputs that are used by this process and the outputs that are generated.

Before you begin answering process audit questions, please enter
the name of your process at the top of the Process Audit questionnaire.
Three response options are provided: YES, NO, and N/A. NO answers
point to process performance problems, YES answers identify positive
areas, while N/A responses identify questions that are not applicable
in your situation.

Once you’ve answered all the audit questions, you’re ready to summarize
your audit, calculate process performance scores, draw general audit
conclusions, and make and implement recommendations to address
your process performance problems.


Overview of AS9100C Records Audit Program

Our Records Audit Program is partly based on the ISO 15489-1
records management standard and covers the following topics:

  1. Management

  2. Initiation

  3. Recording

  4. Revisions

  5. Access

  6. Maintenance

  7. Retention

  8. Destruction

  9. Reporting

  10. Usability

  11. Authenticity

  12. Protection

  13. Continuity

  14. Training

  15. Auditing

  16. Compliance

Start by selecting a set of records. Our Audit Program can be used to
audit virtually any type of record keeping system. Examples that you may
wish to consider include the following: training records, design records,
production records, service delivery records, measurement records,
product traceability records, audit records, manufacturing records, management review records, and calibration records.

Once you’ve chosen which records to audit, you’re ready to prepare your
Records Audit Profile. Specify the scope of your audit, its location, the
participants, and prepare a brief audit plan.

Before you begin answering record keeping audit questions, please enter
the name of the records being audited at the top of the audit questionnaire.
This will help to ensure that the focus of the internal audit is maintained.
Three response options are provided: YES, NO, and N/A. NO answers
point to record keeping performance problems, YES answers identify
positive areas, while N/A responses identify questions that are not
applicable in your situation.

Once you’ve answered all the audit questions, you’re ready to summarize
your audit, calculate record keeping performance scores, draw general
audit conclusions, and make and implement recommendations to
address your record keeping performance problems.

Our AS9100C Compliance Audit uses a black font to identify ISO 9001 questions
while this blue italic font is used to identify questions that are unique to AS9100C.
