The 9100 Team is developing a self-assessment tool, intended to help organizations achieve more value and benefit from their Quality Management System (QMS). The Aerospace Improvement Maturity Model (AIMM) is a model for both certified and non-certified organizations, driven by the decision of an organization and its genuine quest for improvement.
AIMM will be used to assess the entire scope of the QMS or a subset of selected areas of interest and priority for the organization.
AIMM will provide a framework to evaluate the level of maturity achieved by an organization in implementing a 9100 compliant QMS. The key elements of this framework are:
- a set of expected outcomes, derived from the entire scope of requirements of the 9100 standard;
- a maturity scale, consisting of five levels of maturity;
- a complete set of maturity assessment criteria to determine the achieved maturity level for each expected outcome.
