ACTION ITEM: John Barrett to distribute the QMS assignment sheet to the Staff Engineers

5.0    AUDITOR CONSISTENCY

       Mark Covert & David Day presented an ANOVA evaluation on variability for
       auditors. Follow up analysis to be conducted during the closed session for deep dive
       of data. Task Group members volunteer to continue variability assessment for three
       auditors. Based on discussion and limited review conducted during the meeting, it was
       the consensus that auditor inconsistencies based on number of findings requires further
       investigation. The current data does not identify trends over time nor complementary
       findings documented in any conjoined audits. Further investigation and discussion is
       needed before actions are taken.

ACTION ITEM: Auditor data should be reviewed for trends in number of NCR’s
considering the findings in the conjoined commodity audits, trends in content of findings, and
trends in number or type of findings. Review the following auditor’s prior audits for trends
and report results at the next meeting. David Day, Rick Ouellette, and William Solchik to
report on assigned auditor. Due: 18 April 2007

6.0    DISTRIBUTOR PROGRAM SUNSET STATUS

       Decision was taken at the October 2006 meeting to sunset the Distributor program
       based on a decreasing utilization by suppliers and a decrease of prime endorsement
       and/or mandate. Current accreditations will continue to be honored until their
       expiration dates. No new audits shall be conducted.

ACTION ITEM: John Barrett to cancel existing standards and checklists for the sunset
Distributor program. Review PRI/Nadcap procedures and eAuditNet for required revisions
for Distributor program references. Due Date: 18 April 2007

8.0    AQS POLICY DISCUSSION

       The Task Group discussed the policy of approvals for extensions and acceptance of
       statement of conformity for a QMS approval. Extensions are granted to align
       AC7004 audits with the expiration dates of Special Process audits..

       proposed handbook should provide guidance and expectation for auditors and
       suppliers. The draft was reviewed and edited for technical content. The efforts of
       Zdenek and John were noted by the Task Group and the results of their hard work
       were appreciated by the Task Group.



                Audit Handbook

11.0   AQS STAFF ENGINEER SUPPORT PLAN

       There is the possibility of approving additional PRI Staff Engineer support for AQS
       over the next quarter. If new Staff Engineers are added, they will be assigned a
       delegated Staff Engineer as a mentor. The delegated Staff Engineer will review
       several audits reviewed by the new reviewer to assure the new Staff Engineer
       understands Task Group expectations. An email notice shall be sent to the Task
       Group prior to any audits being submitted for 100% Task Group non-delegated
       review.

12.0   AUDIT OBSERVATIONS

       Discussion on how process works and what direction the oversight committee is
       taking.

13.0   AUDITOR TRAINING PLAN - 2007

       Lockheed Martin provided Auditor Training during the October 06 Nadcap meeting.
       Although final plans have not been made for the 2007 training, it is expected that
       AC7004 training will be conducted on Saturday, 20 Oct 2007. The expected duration
       of the training module is two hours which shall be presented to all auditors. Volunteer
       Task Group members will be required for this weekend training. AQS members are
       encouraged to review their availability for this training and be ready to volunteer
       during the April 2007 meeting.

ACTION ITEM: All AQS members are responsible to develop one unique draft scenario for
the October AQS Auditor Training. Scenarios should be based on the current AC7004 Rev D.
Final selection of scenarios will be based on the Top Ten findings and the Auditor Handbook
guidance. Due: 18 Apr 2007

14.0   ESSENTIAL QUALITY QUESTIONS FOR CHECKLISTS

       It was agreed that the work with the liaisons will address this agenda item and that no
       further discussion of this item is appropriate at this time. Liaisons shall be working on
       identification of commodity questions which address Quality System requirements.

15.0   REVIEW OF NEW BUSINESS ITEMS

15.1   Review of Heat Treat Audit Failure

       As a result of a decision to fail a Heat Treat Audit, the AQS Task Group agreed to
       suspend an AQS approval for the same supplier. The supplier appealed the audit
       failure and the Heat Treat Task Group agreed to reverse their failure decision based on
                                           Page 6 of 8
                                                                                         AQS
                                                                                 JANUARY 2007
       the relevance of the submitted job audit information and related findings. AQS shall
       continue to monitor this condition and shall take appropriate actions based on the final
       audit disposition by the Heat Treat Task Group.

15.2   The members discussed the possibility that recognition of AS9110 MRO be acceptable
       as a Nadcap QMS. The general consensus is to accept. Boeing requested that a final
       decision to ballot be tabled until the April 2007 meeting. A brief survey of primes
       indicated that no one anticipates suppliers with AS9120 will seek Nadcap
       accreditation in the near future except for Sealant Distributors.

ACTION ITEM: Rick Ouellette to report Boeing’s position & acceptance then provide
proposed language change for NOP-002 (3.4). Due Date: 18 April 2007

15.3   Mark Covert presented a proposal for the Task Group discussion regarding
       modification of the current approval period for AC7004. The attached presentation
       generated much discussion. Additional pros and cons were added to the original
       presentation. No decisions were reached by the Task Group. It was agreed that this
       topic shall be discussed at future AQS meetings. John Barrett presented the attached
       data on the actual periods between AC7004 audits. Even though the approval is
       granted for 36 months, the actual periods between audits varies greatly due to
       associated rules for continued quality systems approval in NOP-002.

15.4   Standardization of Audit Reviews

       A WebEx meeting was held on 28 Nov 2006. It was generally agreed that this meeting
       was beneficial to those who attended. The teleconference provided an opportunity for
       members to discuss their audit review processes and share best practices. The Task
       Group consensus was to hold another WebEx/teleconference meeting on 12 Mar 07.

ACTION ITEM: John Barrett to set up a WebEx/Teleconference with AQS User members
     on Monday, 12 Mar 2007, 10:00-12:00 am EST. Due: 15 Feb 2007

15.5   AC7004 vs. AS9100 – Are there differences in the levels of assessment?

       Based on contributions by attending suppliers, it was determined that the requirements
       and levels of assessments for AC7004 and AS9100 are appropriate. Organizations
       who choose AS9100 have found it more challenging overall to demonstrate
       compliance. The requirements of AC7004 in conjunction with the commodity
       checklists provide a very detailed evaluation of the quality system to support Nadcap
       accreditation.

                                                                                JANUARY 2007

       Programming for the enhanced eAuditNet 2.0 has begun. The expected roll out of this
       version is end of third quarter 2007. Additional information will be shared as it is
       available.

15.7   Contract Review

       The Nadcap initiative to create flowdown templates by commodity was discussed. It
       was agreed that tools which may aid in completing contract review and aid in
       completing flowdown of requirements for purchase will be of value. The AQS Task
       Group does not plan to create a Quality System flowdown template for this project.

15.8   Failure for serious QMS issues – What is the role of AQS?

       When serious issues with the Quality Management System (QMS) are identified by the
       commodity Task Group, the Task Group may require an additional QMS audit as part
       of the corrective action. If a weakness in the prior assessment of the QMS is identified
       related to a registrar performed audit, recent changes in NOP-002 direct the special
       process Task Group to notify the AQS Task Group. The AQS Task Group shall
       review these issues for possible notification to the registrar or the appropriate
       accreditation board to initiate corrective action.

16.0   ADJOURNMENT

       The meeting was adjourned at 5:30 PM, Thursday, 25 Jan 2007.
