Short Course on Counterfeit Parts Detection Using SAE AS6171 with Dr. Michael Azarian
Thursday, August 5, 2021
8:30 a.m.-5:00 p.m.
This full-day course by Dr. Michael Azarian will provide a thorough introduction to the requirements and use of the SAE AS6171 Test Methods Standard for Suspect/Counterfeit Electrical, Electronic, and Electromechanical (EEE) Parts. It will cover the General Requirements document, the Test Evaluation method, and the ten test methods that were all published in 2016.
The SAE AS6171 family of standards was developed by the G-19A Test Laboratory Standards Development Committee to provide a risk-based testing methodology for counterfeit detection. Originally published in October 2016, it consists of a general requirements document and eleven slash sheets. The general requirements document sets out requirements and recommendations for risk assessment, test selection, sampling criteria, training, workmanship, and reporting associated with the detection of counterfeit electrical, electronic, and electromechanical parts. The slash sheets govern a wide range of test methods as well as a method for developing a test plan that balances the investment of resources for testing against the level of risk associated with the parts and end-use application.
Following a brief introduction to the challenges of supply chain security, the first half of the course will focus on the General Requirements document combined with the selection and evaluation of test plans for counterfeit part detection. An emphasis will be placed on the practical implementation of the requirements, illustrated with examples wherever possible.
