The Starter aviation, space and defense AS9100 kit is designed to introduce management to the requirements of the standard and contains only a few documents, such as the quality manual, conformance checklist, overview, action item form and audit schedule.

The Lean aviation, space and defense AS9100 kit is designed to provide all the documents necessary to achieve certification to the standard but does not contain the "Value-Added" documents that are in the comprehensive kit.

The Comprehensive aviation, space and defense AS9100 kit has more documents because of lessons-learned and continuous improvement opportunities that we've encountered over a significant time (30 years with the most demanding managers and Customers on the planet).

Question from about how to report significant digits for first article inspection report:

Can you help me report significant digits related to first articles??


Thanks for your question - please see ASTM E 29 for the industry standard rounding technique, which is applicable to all scientific work regardless of its nature (first article included).

ASTM states:

"When the digit next beyond the last place to be retained is less than 5, retain unchanged the digit in the last place retained.
When the digit next beyond the last place to be retained is greater than 5, increase by 1 the digit in the last place retained.
When the digit next beyond the last place to be retained is 5 and there are no digits beyond this 5 or only zeros, increase by 1 the digit in the last place retained if it is odd, leave the digit unchanged if it is even. Increase by 1 the digit in the last place retained if there are digits beyond this 5.
The rounded value must be obtained in one step by direct rounding of the most precise value available and not in two or more successive roundings."

We cite ASTM E 29 in Company documents whenever part of the work instruction is to report significant digits for compliance to a spec with only 1, 2, 3 or 4 decimal places. If your measuring device's readout displays more decimal places than the specification then you are required to round your reading to match the number of decimal places in the specification - that's where ASTM E 29 comes in handy...

Example - 0.021"±0.001"
0.0211" to 0.0214" must be rounded down to 0.021" for 2 significant digit specifications;
0.0215" to 0.0219" must be rounded up to 0.022" for 2 significant digit specifications;
(unless the last retained digit from the rounding method is even, e.g., 0.0225" is rounded down to 0.022" since the last digit retained is even, while 0.0226" is rounded up to 0.023")

Example - 0.0215"±0.0015"
0.0211" to 0.0219" must be applied as observed - no rounding is possible if the measurement equipment can only read to the 4th decimal place. If the equipment is capable of reading beyond the 4th decimal place then round to the last digit retained as described herein paying particular attention to whether the retained digit is odd or even when followed by the numeral 5.

Example - 550±50
499.1 to 499.4 must be rounded down to 499
499.5 to 499.9 must be rounded up to 500
600.1 to 600.5 must be rounded down to 600
600.6 to 600.9 must be rounded up to 601

Please find this rounding method in our catalog at "General Requirements".

Hope this information helps your project.
