Understand the key changes from AIAG’s 4th edition to the updated and combined AIAG (Automotive Industry Action Group) and VDA (Verband der Automobilindustrie – German Association of the Automotive Industry) handbooks on our AIAG &VDA FMEA Transition training course.

This 1-day course includes interactive workshops to encourage discussion around developing a Failure Mode and Effects (FMEA) and its fit within an overall design.

Upon completion of the course delegates will understand how FMEA has changed, how to apply the new 7 step approach, and how the changes may affect current FMEAs.

This course is highly suitable for automotive industry workers involved in FMEA, including:

  • FMEA project leaders and team members
  • product developers
  • IATF 16949 auditors
  • senior management wanting to know the effects of the changes

The course requires prior knowledge of FMEA and the AIAG 4th edition. For those who wish to develop a basic understanding of FMEA we suggest attending our Failure Mode and Effects Analysis – FMEA training course.

Topics covered in the course include:

  • brief introduction to FMEA and causes for the recent development
  • AIAG and VDA objectives
  • different types of FMEA – system, design and process
  • key differences between the AIAG 4th edition and VDA/AIAG joint handbook, including the need for more planning and analysis
  • the new 7 step FMEA process
  • design FMEA scoring and action priority
  • process FMEA scoring and action priority
  • control plans

On completion of this FMEA transition training course delegates will understand:

  • why FMEA has been changed and the effects of the AIAG/VDA joint handbook
  • how to complete an FMEA using the new 7 step approach
  • how the changes affect current FMEAs

This course can be provided on a dedicated basis at your premises, a venue of your choice or online.

Dedicated training courses can be developed around your needs and can focus on design (D)FMEA or process (P)FMEA. Please contact us for more information.
