|Publication Date:||1 February 2016|
This handbook is designed to assist a program in assuring the performance, reliablity. ainvorthiness. safety. and ceffifiatility of products), in accordance with GEIA-STD-0005-1. 'Performance Standard for Aerospace and High Performance Electonic Systems Containing Pb-free Solder*. Please note that the program manager, and managers d systems engineering, Supply Chain and Quality Assurance (along with their respective organizations). and the appropriate enterprise authority need to work together in ensuring that an impacts of Pb-free technology insertion are understood and risks mitigated accordingly. Herein "program management (or manager), supplier chain management (or manager), quality assurance management (or manager) and systems engineering management (or manager) and/or the appropriate enterprise authority* shall be defined as *responsible manager throughout the remaining document (see Section 3, Terms and Definitions).
The basic prindples delineated in this handbook can be used for program management, system engineering. supply chain management and quality assurance management d any aerospace and/or high performance program. Appendk A contains a Genera Responsible Manager Chadds( for Dealing with Pb-free Issues. The cheddist can be used to identify potential issues related to the content hi sections 5 (trough 15 of this handbook.
Pb-free technology can impact any progam regardless d whether the program itself is exempt or bound by environmental regulations. The industry conversion to Pb-free solder technology may affect manufacturers and consumers of ADHP electronics in one a combinations of the following three ways: (1) If the program Is required to implement Pb-free technology (contract requirement, environmental regulation. etc), than the managers of organizations responsible for program execution will need to assess the impact d in-house trainmen with respect to design (e.g.. performance of products using Pb-free) and process (e.g.. processes to build Pb-free products). (2) If the program purchases COTS (Commerdal-off-the-S
