Boeing has reached consensus on a common process for controlling the transfer of digital product definition to suppliers. The Boeing document D6-51991, Quality Assurance Standard For Digital Product Definition at Boeing Suppliers, consolidates and replaces multiple Boeing requirements. The document outlines uniform specifications for supplier control of digital product definition data and software.
All suppliers are encouraged to review this document to control and use Boeing digital product definition data at their site, as well as at the sites of their sub-tier suppliers. Boeing will conduct a single on-site assessment of suppliers' digital product definition capabilities. The checklist used for the capability assessment and the D6-51991 standard are available below:
