Satisfactory assessment of your management system
leads to completion of an industry-based checklist by the auditor. The checklist
allows the auditor to allocate scores for the various topics covered, and to
enter the results on the Online Aerospace Supplier Information System (OASIS)
which is a web hosted database allowing shared access to aerospace qualification
data. General company data is readily available, but with other audit-based
information, organizations can choose whether to grant access to other OASIS
users, select member companies, or selected individuals.
