Statistical Product Acceptance Requirements
|Publication Date:||1 October 2005|
This SAE Aerospace Recommended Practice (ARP) establishes the general requirements when implementing any of the statistical product acceptance methods as defined in ARP9013/1, ARP9013/2, ARP9013/3, and ARP9013/4. This recommended practice also establishes the minimum content required to be covered in an organization's documented procedures that govern their application of statistical product acceptance methods. These general requirements and documented procedures apply the requirements of AS9100 plus requirements for retrievability, safety/critical characteristics, quality parameters, and that these parameters protect the customer. This recommended practice is to be used in conjunction with the variety of sampling strategies, statistical techniques, and process control methods of the ARP9013/1 through ARP9013/4 recommended practices as chosen by the organization.
Field of Application:
This recommended practice is applicable when invoked in a purchasing contract or specification, other contractual document, customer agreement, or adopted by the organization. The appropriate slash-numbered recommended practice(s) in this series applied by the organization may or may not be specified by the purchaser's contract, but does form a part of the ARP9013 flowdown requirement. If desired to sample a series of lots without using ARP9013/1, ARP9013/2, or ARP9013/3, the requirements of ARP9013/4 shall be used
