Supply Chain Risk Management (SCRM), defined in this guideline, can be applied proactively for the protection of all procured products and services; both flying and non-flying through all levels of the supply chain. The guideline focuses on Quality as a key risk assessment factor taking into account elements from all aspects of the business having a direct link to global quality management. This concept/model is shown in Figure 1. While traditional "small q " Quality is a key element to be assessed, from a company business point of view, other elements play an important part in minimizing risk. This guideline defines such risk factors for consideration. SCRM as a business protection tool will be most effective when used to identify, and reduce risks when generating new business with new and existing suppliers. However, the tools and techniques described hereafter can also be applied to evaluate the existing supply chain network and determine the level of control required. The SCRM can be applied by merging identified risk factors associated with procured products or services and the supplier itself with the target for overall supplier quality risk management (see Section 6).

This Aerospace Recommended Practice (ARP) is written by “e-Tools sub-team” chartered by Americas Aerospace Quality Group (AAQG). In December 1998, the Aerospace Industry had established the International Aerospace Quality Group (IAQG) with the purpose of achieving significant improvements in quality and reductions in cost throughout the value stream. AAQG, with representation from Aerospace companies in Americas, is one of three sectors of the IAQG. AAQG is working towards the same common goal of IAQG. AAQG, sponsored by SAE, has agreed to take responsibility for the technical contents of this ARP.

A widely used material for lightning strike protection of CFRP structures within the aerospace industry is expanded metal foil (EMF). An issue with EMF is micro cracking of the paint, which can result in corrosion of the metal foil and subsequent loss of conductivity. Boeing researchers examined the issues of stress and displacement in the composite structure layup, which contribute to paint cracking caused by aircraft thermal cycling.

ARP9162A
The focus of Operator Self-Verification is on traditional manufacturing operations, and applications can be made wherever traditional inspection is employed. The practices recommended in this document are intended to identify the basic elements and provide a "guideline " for structuring Operator Self-Verification programs within the aerospace industry; applicable to producers of commercial and military aircraft and weapons platforms, space vehicles, and all related hardware, software, electronics, engines and composite components. Operator Self-Verification programs are applied to improve the overall efficiency and product quality of processes considered mature, as judged by the implementing organization. Operator Self-Verification programs are not stand-alone processes, but augment existing quality management systems. The identified program elements are for voluntary implementation by the organization, and are not intended for contractual flow-down unless otherwise stipulated through contractual agreement.
