Standardization is beneficial in achieving interoperability and ensuring products meet certain requirements, as well as providing reliability and compatibility. Standards govern every aspect of business and every industry, especially such a highly regulated industry as aviation and aerospace. Every spare part that goes into an airplane must be tested and approved to ensure that it is air-worthy. There is enormous liability involved in this industry for selling products that do not pass quality assurance standards. There are various standards developed by defense, non-defense government organizations, and commercial organizations that denote certain specifications and requirements. The BAC Standard, MS Standard, NAS Standard, and AS Standard are among them. Some are industry-wide standards while some are company-specific.
In order to understand the impact that industry standards have on aviation, let’s put things into perspective. Over the next 20 years, Boeing estimates that the global market for commercial aviation will reach $2.3 trillion. This means that companies must meet the bar set by industry leaders if they wish to compete in this lucrative market. Some of the largest companies in the aviation industry, such as Boeing, have their own company-specific standards, which denote requirements that their products meet and signify a certain level of quality. Such standards have often set the bar for quality of aviation parts.
Boeing creates its own set of standards, labeling parts with the prefix BAC, for parts that it puts into the market. These are either developed internally or in collaboration with the rest of the industry to form industry-wide standards. The BAC standard, a top-level industry standard, deals with everything from quality system and planning and control of nonconforming material. Their standards regulate business in their four core capabilities: material services, fleet services, flight services, and information services. Although originally made by Boeing, the following companies, among others, also follow these standards: Fujitsu, Hawker Beechcraft, Raytheon, General Electric, Klixon, Cannon, Zodiac Sell Gmbh, Jamco Corp, Rohm and Haas Co. and Matsushita.
