   Auditing / Assessment       Quality audits or assessments are the independent evaluation of a company's quality assurance procedures and processes (quality manuals, QA sampling, quality control/SPC), and a determination about whether the company complies with these documents and procedures. Quality audits or assessments can also be used to compare a particular aspect of quality performance to a standard for registration purposes, or for vendor approval (qualification) by an OEM or prime contractor. 
   Certification       Certification services verify that the company's products, parts, services, process, quality system, or procedures comply with or conform to industrial, OEM-specific, or third-party standards. 
   Component / Product Comparison       Companies compare the performance of components or products. 
   Consulting / Training       Companies offer training and consulting related to testing, inspection, test methods or techniques, regulations, regulatory impact, and/or the registration process. 
   Engineering / Design Verification (DVT)       Companies offer engineering verification, including basic functional testing, parametric measurements, and specification verification. Design verification testing (DVT) is a rigorous process that subjects the product to repeated functional, temperature, shock, vibration, and exception testing. 
   Data Acquisition / Instrumentation       Companies design, install, and/or operate data acquisition systems or test instrumentation in on-site field facilities, off-site labs, or for specific end-use applications. 
   Evaluation / Inspection       Evaluation or inspection is the process used to determine if a product, service, component, facility, or quality system meets specific standards, performance criteria, or OEM-specific requirements. 
   Failure Analysis / Troubleshooting       Failure analysis is the evaluation of a product and product failure to determine the underlying cause of the failure. Failure analysis results are used to correct design flaws.  Troubleshooting is diagnostic or corrective maintenance performed to correct an existing problem. This differs from preventive maintenance, which is performed proactively in order to prevent system problems. Failure mode and effects analysis (FMEA) is a specialized methodology for analyzing failures.

   Wind Tunnel / Aerodynamics       Companies offer wind tunnel or aerodynamics testing services. Wind tunnel testing services provide test facilities and technical staff for aerodynamic testing. Tests may be performed on prototype aircraft, helicopters, trains, cars, or buildings. Wind tunnel testing services also perform general research and development (R&D) involving aerodynamics and aeromechanics. A wind tunnel is a tube-shaped or tunnel-like chamber that contains a test platform and a large fan. The fan blows a steady stream of air through the chamber in order to determine the effects of wind pressure on the test object, which remains fixed to the platform. Aerodynamics, the study of how air flows around an object, enables wind tunnel testing services to predict the effects of lift, drag, weight, and thrust. Lift is a measure of the aerodynamic force on an object perpendicular to the direction of the air flow. Drag is the aerodynamic force parallel to the relative airflow. Weight is the force due to gravity. Thrust is the forced generated by an object, such as an engine, under test.
