FMEA has recently been updated through the joint publication of the AIAG (Automotive Industry Action Group) and VDA (Verband der Automobilindustrie – German Association of the Automotive Industry) handbooks.

Through interactive workshops this one-day transition training course will take delegates through the new 7 step approach for FMEA, exploring the key differences between the AIAG 4th edition and the new combined AIAG/VDA handbook both for design and process FMEAs.

This new AIAG/VDA version of the FMEA is not currently a mandatory requirement for all automotive manufacturers so if you would like a training course covering the basics of FMEA based on AIAG’s 4th edition please see our regular FMEA training course.

In house training courses can be developed around client needs and can focus on design FMEA or process FMEA. Please contact us for more information.
