Recommended Practice for Parts Management
|Publication Date:||1 January 2001|
This Recommended Practice is a collection of techniques for managing parts programs. It addresses the preferred program elements adopted by the aerospace industry (military, civil, and commercial) for parts management. The approaches cover electrical, electronic, and electromechanical (EEE) and mechanical parts.
This document is written in general terms as a baseline for implementing a parts management program. It may be cited as a baseline within a statement of work and/or for assessing proposals and contractor performance. All levels of contractual relationships (acquiring activities, primes, subcontractors, and suppliers) may use this document. EEE and mechanical parts, together with materials and processes, form one of seventeen critical processes involved in the various phases of every program.
