Collaboration on Quality in the Space and Defense Industries

March 9 - 10, 2020  |  Cape Canaveral, FL   

Enabling Success in 2020 and Beyond


This event will feature high level industry and government keynote and featured speakers along with new panel topics on Digital Transformation, Commercial Space regulations, advancements in Additive Manufacturing from a customer’s perspective, and mentoring strategies for our emerging Millennial workforce. We have also included workshops on Cyber Security, Small Supplier perspectives, Supply Chain Risk, and Quality for the new quality professional.

With the continued support of the ASQ Aviation, Space & Defense Division and the industry volunteers on the committee, we look forward to seeing you at the 2020 CQSDI.

UPDATE: Collaboration on Quality in Space and Defense Industry is still being held as planned.  However, below is a note from NASA regarding the Quality Leadership Forum (QLF) from Jeannette Plante, QLF Chair, that was sent directly to all of their registered participants:


I regret that we will have to cancel the QLF scheduled for next week.  This is based on recent guidance that the NASA Office of Safety and Mission Assurance received from the NASA Administrator to limit non-mission-critical travel and to hold large face to face meetings virtually.

Please be aware that the CQSDI conference will continue to go forward as planned on Monday and Tuesday.


NASA's Quality Leadership Forum (QLF) is the only quality conference sponsored by NASA OSMA, with its focus center on NASA's quality concerns and challenges. It will be held on March 11 & 12, 2020, right after CQSDI, using the same venue at Radisson at the Port, Cape Canaveral, FL. To increase participation by NASA personnel there is no registration fee for the QLF.

The themes for this year's QLF will be requirements tailoring and management for risk tolerant missions; generating, acquiring and analyzing quality data; technical topics from NASA missions; and tools. Time will be given to facilitating discussions, professional networking, and coalition building among the attendees.

The American Society for Quality Aviation, Space and Defense Division (ASD) and NASA Headquarters Office of Safety and Mission Assurance (OSMA) team up each year to host these two back-to-back quality leadership forums. NASA OSMA and ASD coordinate to ensure that the two programs are complementary and not duplicative. These are important and unique knowledge sharing and networking events for the NASA-DoD-Contractor quality discipline community.
