The revised handbook represents the culmination of a four year project updating the FMEA process for automotive suppliers. The project was a joint effort between OEMs and Tier 1 supplier members of the Automotive Industry Action Group (AIAG) and Verband der Automobilindustrie (VDA), Germany’s association for automotive manufacturers and suppliers. The result is one common foundation for FMEAs across all global automotive sectors represented by AIAG and VDA.
While the changes can seem daunting, we are happy to report that every day we get more comfortable with the new approach to FMEAs. In fact, many of the improvements in the handbook have always been a part of how we teach companies to do FMEAs! The new handbook provides more direction and specificity as to how FMEAs are to be conducted. The result will be improved ability to reduce risk with increasingly complex vehicles.
We have created a free whitepaper that boils the changes into the 10 essentials practitioners need to know about the new FMEAs.
When you download the whitepaper, we will also subscribe you to our free monthly FMEA Advisor. This easy-to-read e-newsletter will give you tips, strategies and insight into AIAG-VDA FMEAs. Best of all, we promise it will take less than 10 minutes to read!
AIAG-VDA FMEA Online Training Now Available
Thousands of people and hundreds of companies trust QualityTrainingPortal with their FMEA training. And, we are here now to guide you into the next phase – AIAG-VDA FMEAs. We are offering a series of FMEA courses based on the new handbook. The first of three online courses, Introduction to AIAG-VDA FMEAs, was just released. The course introduces learners to the 2019 FMEA process. Participants who complete the training will have a good understanding of the new FMEA methodology including the 7-step FMEA process and using the Action Priority Tables to assess risk.
What about our existing FMEA online training?
Because the AIAG-VDA changes will only be required for the automotive sector, we plan to keep all of our existing “traditional” FMEA courses active and available.
