main gain from oasis
Main Gain from “OASIS”
  • The process of obtaining ISO9001:2000 and AS9120 has instilled in our staff a quality culture that permeates through the whole company.
  • Pride in our “OASIS” registration
  • Our staff set themselves the highest standards to maintain it.
our system
Our System
  • No special preparation for audits .
  • We sink or swim on our normal everyday procedures.
  • Ours is a no blame system.
  • Mistakes happen but very ,very, rarely escape the system.
  • Hiding problems is not tolerated.
some creeping issues
Some Creeping Issues
  • NADCAP / OASIS overlap. A probably unintended overlap has started to occur with the trend to the use of more composites in aircraft manufacturing.
  • NADCAP being process based was not intended to apply to material distributors
  • Some are pushing NADCAP requirements back into the already AS 9120 and IAQG approved audited distribution chain. It is a area needing more clarification.
nadcap as9120 issues
NADCAP/ AS9120 Issues

NADCAP Duplicated Areas

  • Storage conditions and Logistics
  • Full traceability
  • Batch control and shelf Life
  • Temperature control of chemical storage
  • Out time recording
  • Reference to measurement standards

All these are already audited under AS9120.

quality cost v benefits
Quality– Cost v Benefits
  • All expenditures have an opportunity cost
  • Quality systems have a cost. To date for aviation the benefits have far outweighed the costs.
  • As the quality of our basic design, manufacturing and procurement systems improve, the law of diminishing returns will apply to new initiatives.
  • Future developments must give real benefits
don t get complacent
Don’t get Complacent
  • 7/8 of the worlds educated population does not understand the imperial system.
  • Politics, contrails and global warming.
  • The Airframe for the 787 is designed for a life span that will take it into an era of oil shortages
