This document covers the process to be applied to design characteristics (as defined in AS9102), parts or inspection processes as defined by the purchaser. Design characteristics not included within the scope include electronic, electromechanical or mechanical systems where alternative means of acceptance are approved such as through acceptance test procedures (ATPs). This document does not define processes for identifying or communicating the classification of the parts or design characteristics. This document does not define the procedure to qualify a supplier to undertake these requirements. It is expected that each purchaser will have a procedure to manage the flow-down of these requirements. This document applies to suppliers that demonstrate adequate proficiency in applicable process control methods as determined by the purchaser.
The aviation, space, and defense industries rely on the development and manufacture of complex products comprised of multiple systems, subsystems, and components each designed by individual designers (design activities) at various levels within the supply chain. Each design activity controls various aspects of the configuration and specifications related to the product. When a change to design information is requested or required, the change has to be evaluated against the impacts to the higher-level system. Proposed changes to design information that the design activity identifies to be minor and have no effect on their product requirements or specifications have the potential to be concurrently implemented and approved, where authorized to do so. Changes that affect customer mandated requirements or specifications must be approved prior to implementation.

The objective of this course is to provide an in-depth understanding of the concepts and principles involved in the Review and Configuration Audit process. It is intended for an individual who has completed a basic introductory course in CM and who requires the deeper knowledge of a CM practitioner rather than a superficial overview. Technical review and product audit practices described in this text are based on Government requirements. This emphasis is made because the Department of Defense DOD) represents a major customer of goods and services and because the referenced specifications and standards reflect good business practices refined over many years of usage. For commercial companies producing items for other companies or the public, many of these reviews and audits may not be formally implemented. They are, however, an integral and essential part of the systems engineering process.
The scope of this bulletin is to provide guidance on the use of current and future technologies for the electronic interchange of CMS data. the purpose of this guide is to ensure requirements of CM (identificaiton, control, status accounting and audit) are used as the basis for transitioning to an automated environment.

Industries, organizations, and professions are reliant upon a community of competent people and individuals that possess relevant skills and knowledge for their scope of responsibility. Traditional methods of defining requisite knowledge and skills have been based on job analysis methodologies and through the development of Subject Matter Expert (SME) BoKs. While job analysis methodologies may suffice at a micro-level, they offer little value to the profession and industrial communities. Furthermore, SME developed BoKs are inherently limited to the knowledge and experience by the individuals serving as SMEs.
