IAQG Study Shows More Suppliers On-Time

The International Aerospace Quality Group (IAQG) has released a study (“Aerospace Suppliers’ Performances Trends”) that compares 2012 supplier metrics to 2010 supplier metrics.

The study found that late deliveries were down – this statistic was helped by an increased incidence of zero late deliveries among respondents.

The study also measured “Item Escape Rates.”  This term is defined as the ratio of the number of non-conforming items divided by the number of items delivered.  The data showed that Item Escape Rates remained fairly constant from 2010 to 2012.  The study concludes that this stability for Item Escape Rates poses a challenge for the aerospace manufacturing community because of the community’s objective of continuous improvement.

The study was focused on suppliers to aerospace manufacturers among IAQG’s membership.
