CMM Optic (Troy, MI) has achieved AS9100 aerospace management systems certification from NSF-ISR, an NSF International (Ann Arbor, MI) company. This certification covers CMM Optics Troy facility as well as the Rochester Hills, MI facility acquired in summer 2020. While both locations had prior independent certifications, the company has achieved the milestone of a multisite certification for the design and manufacture of precision optics, structures, and optical-mechanical-electrical assemblies.

The company has also added design to its certification scope, which applies to its Rochester Hills location.

The AS9100 standard is based on ISO 9001, but encompasses additional requirements specific to the unique needs of aerospace industry prime organizations and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs). These manufacturers/OEMs and their global supply base often endorse or require certification as an assurance that certain base principles have been implemented.

The standard also incorporates requirements of relevant industry stakeholdersfor example, product safety awareness, counterfeit controls, risk-based thinking, and process validation. In addition, it is compatible with other management systems, such as ISO 14001.

This standard also focuses on performance through a combination of risk-based thinking, process-defined metric performance, and an approach to continual improvement, along with the employment of the “plan-do-check-act” cycle at all levels in the organization.
