Course Description: ABSTRACT: AIAG-VDA Process FMEA

Course Description: ABSTRACT: AIAG-VDA Process FMEA
As you may know that the FMEA has been revised and the new version (1st edition, as the older one is obsolete) released in June 2019. This version has been jointly developed by AIAG and VDA, therefore fulfills the requirements of AIAG and VDA members and those customers who specify it as a part of customer specific requirements.
There has been a change from the earlier version in terms of fulfilling the intent of FMEA. There are a lot of new columns that have been added to the form. While it may appear complex but once understood, it is a very logical flow of understanding and addressing the risks in a very effective manner. It requires upfront investment of time but it is worth it since it requires deeper reflection of the understanding of the process (for PFMEA). An effective upfront work would prevent the significant potential issues in the future. Another significant change is the elimination of RPN from the system and the actions are expected based on the combination of severity, occurrence and detection. The tables for severity, occurrence and detection have been revised with the option of creating business specific examples to determine the scores.
This 2.5 hour workshop would be hands on event with real problems that you would bring with you, so that you can relate to the new FMEA.
If you have any questions about the course, please feel free to contact the Instructors.
