With AS9100 Rev D soon to be released, we thought we would have a look back at the previous transition from Rev B to Rev C to see if the aerospace industry can learn from any previous mistakes in order to make the coming months and years as easy and pain-free as possible. 

This useful article from Quality Magazine lays out some of the major successes of AS9100 Rev C and the groundbreaking benefits it had to the aerospace industry. 

It also highlights some of the things that could have gone a lot smoother, and some of the issues that a few organisations had with the changes. 

Definitely an interesting read if you want to avoid some of the potential stumbling blocks of regulatory changes and use history to your benefit... Food for thought.
