Quality Management Systems – Requirements for Aviation, Space and Defense Organizations – Non-Deliverable Software (Supplement to 9100:2016)
Non-deliverable software is defined as software that facilitates the design, development, manufacture, inspection, test, acceptance, or calibration of a deliverable product, and is not generally delivered under a contract. This may include deliverable services software such as but not limited to maintenance procedures, order processing and/or various types of online technical support resources. As Industry efforts increase to improve product quality and reliability and reduce production costs, use of computer software programs for automation, control and monitoring of production processes and product test, acceptance and calibration is also increasing. It is therefore vital to assure these software programs are controlled to ensure product conformity requirements are properly supported.
