The Aerospace Improvement Maturity Model (AIMM) is provided by the IAQG to help organizations move beyond compliance to the 9100 standard and improve the maturity of their Quality Management System (QMS). Using AIMM, an organization can evaluate its current level of maturity and set clear targets for improvement. AIMM can be successfully used by certified or non-certified organizations, either for the entire scope of a 9100 compliant QMS or specific areas of interest.

The model comprises 26 modules to be developed and validated in four batches, with completion planned in Spring 2021. The model is planned to be made available to the public in Fall 2021 using an online application currently under development, which will also support users’ performance of self-assessments.

The IAQG community will be invited to use the model and provide feedback for its continual improvement.
