AS9100 is a widely adopted and standardized quality management system for the aerospace industry. It replaces the earlier AS9000 and fully incorporates the entirety of the current version of ISO 9000, while adding additional requirements relating to quality and safety.

It will lead to a product quality plan which will support development of a product or service that will satisfy the customer.
