AS9100 is an international standard containing requirements for establishing and maintaining a quality management system for the aerospace industry. AS9100 is used by organizations that design, develop, and produce aviation, space, and defense products. It encompasses the basic structure of ISO 9001 with the addition of specific aerospace industry best practices that provides the quality and reliability needs of the aerospace industry. The aerospace industry has high standards of customer satisfaction and strict laws imposed by regulatory authorities, therefore, the industry needs to produce and continuously improve products that meet these requirements. Unlike other quality management standards, which focus primarily on the final product, AS9100 focuses more on how the products are made. This standard establishes the elements that a quality management system must have in order for companies to consistently provide safe, quality products that are delivered on time.
CMMI for Development (DEV) provides guidance for process improvement across a project, department, or organization that will lead to improved quality lower costs, and on time delivery of products and services. CMMI-DEV guidance covers the life cycles of products from conception through delivery and maintenance. CMMI-DEV best practices are flexible enough to apply to a variety of industries, yet stable and consistent enough to provide a benchmark against which an organization can measure and compare itself. When a company is appraised at CMMI for Development, it means that the company has been trained, assessed, and appraised in the areas of product and service development. At maturity level 3, processes are well characterized and understood, and are described in standards, procedures, tools, and methods.
CMMI for Services (SVC) is used to improve management and service delivery processes in an organization that develops, manages, and delivers services. An appraisal at maturity level 3 indicates an organization is performing at a “defined” level. At this level, processes are well characterized and understood and are described in standards, procedures, tools, and methods. The organization’s set of standard processes, which is the basis for maturity level 3, is established and improved over time.
ISO 9001 is the international standard for creating a Quality Management Systems (QMS), published by ISO (the International Organization for Standardization). As an international standard, it is recognized as the basis for any company to create a system to ensure customer satisfaction and improvement. This world recognized standard provides direction for QMS requirements needed to be implemented for a company that wants to create policies, processes, and procedures necessary to provide products and services that meet customer and regulatory needs and improved customer satisfaction.
ISO/IEC 27001 is an international standard on how to manage information security. ... It details requirements for establishing, implementing, maintaining and continually improving an information security management system (ISMS) – the aim of which is to help organizations make the information assets they hold more secure. ISO/IEC 27001 formally specifies a management system that is intended to bring information security under explicit management control. Being a formal specification means that it mandates specific requirements. Organizations that claim to have adopted ISO/IEC 27001 can therefore be formally audited and certified compliant with the standard. ISO/IEC 27001 requires that management:
• Systematically examines the organization’s information security risks, taking account of the threats, vulnerabilities, and impacts.
• Designs and implements a coherent and comprehensive suite of information security controls and/or other forms of risk treatment (such as risk avoidance or risk transfer) to address those risks that are deemed unacceptable.
• Adopts an overarching management process to ensure that the information security controls continue to meet the organization’s information security needs on an on-going basis.
