Getting the Process Right: MIL, Space and ISO Standards

  • Author: Gary Breed
Key standards for military, space and other high-reliability products emphasize adherence to well-defined processes and procedures. Similarly, the ISO 9000-series of standards establishes appropriate processes to ensure consistent, high quality business operations. These standards address the methods used in manufacturing, measurement, documentation, and other business functions. Ideally, the guidance (and enforcement) of these standards will ensure that products are built, tested and delivered in a manner that will result in consistent performance for products manufactured at different times, along with accurate records that confirm compliance, and provide a means of examining “what and when” in the event that problems arise later on.
