Supply Chain Management Handbook

Are you using the Supply Chain Management Handbook (SCMH) as a tool to support your supplier control mechanisms?

All PMA manufacturers have an obligation to control their suppliers in accordance with 14 C.F.R. 21.137. The FAA-approved quality manual will have a mechanism for accomplishing this but how do you improve your processes?

The International Aerospace Quality Group (IAQG) is made up aerospace manufacturing quality professionals from around the world. IAQG has published the SCMH in order to share best practices for accomplishing supplier control. For issues affecting supplier qualification, supplier managing and tracking of supplier metrics, the SCMH is an excellent source of ideas and guidance.

The SCMH is a living document that is constantly being updated with new guidance. In fact, I currently serve on a working group developing new guidance on how to recognize counterfeit parts.

Need more help? IAQG is planning on holding a series of webinars to introduce and educate on specific chapters of the SCMH. They will start this summer but have not yet been scheduled. When they are scheduled, we will let you know the details!

  1. Thanks for sharing your valuable opinion towards Supply Chain Management Handbook. I hope it is a great way to monitoring the suppliers. Without keeping a proper ledger, handling the task in logistic management may be tough.
