Meet Aerospace OEM Requirements using Model Based Definition (MBD)

If you answer yes to one or more of these questions, you should plan to attend this workshop:

  • Are you looking to understand Model Based definition better?
  • Are you seeking D6-51991 certification or something similar to qualify as an aerospace supplier?
  • Are you looking for options to reduce the time involved in FAI?

Adaptive Ensures Customer Meets Boeing Supply Chain Requirements

When a customer needed to document the processes and procedures necessary to qualify as a Boeing supplier under their D6-51991 Quality Assurance Standard, Adaptive stepped in to help them meet the necessary documentation requirements for compliance.


The Quality Assurance Standard for Digital Product Definition at Boeing Suppliers (Boeing’s D6-51991) provides the basis for Boeing suppliers to create and implement plans, user level procedures, and process documentation governing the handling of Boeing-furnished datasets. As such, the DPD governs a wide variety of activities, starting with basic operations, such as how the supplier performs configuration management and maintains media security, the use and maintenance of product acceptance software, how measurement and test equipment is calibrated and certified, how internal quality audits are accomplished, and how the supplier’s employees are trained to assure competence in their roles and compliance in their daily work.

Learn how Adaptive worked with the customer, as well as Boeing auditors, to respond to every section in Boeing’s DPD specifications.
