AS9100 is a widely adopted and standardized quality management system for the aerospace industry. It was introduced by the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) in the Americas and the European Association of Aerospace Industries in Europe in October 1999. The International Aerospace Quality Group (IAQG) composed the AS9100 document which defines requirements for the Quality Management System Standard. AS9100 fully incorporates the entirety of the current version of ISO 9001:2000 along with 80 additional requirements critical to aerospace quality.
ISO (International Organization for Standardization) is the world's largest developer and publisher of International Standards. ISO 9001:2000 is the standard that provides a set of standardized requirements for a quality management system.

The AS9100 and ISO9001 criteria are basics of good business practice. Meeting the criteria involves setting quality goals, ensuring customer requirements are met, training employees, controlling production processes, purchasing from suppliers of quality products, and correcting problems to make sure they do not happen again.
When AS9100 is implemented in an organization:
o Well defined and documented procedures improve the consistency of output o Quality is constantly measured o Procedures ensure corrective action is taken whenever defects occur o Defect rates decrease and defects are caught earlier o Defining procedures identifies obsolete or inefficient practices o Documented procedures are easier for new employees to follow
