Course Introduction ›

The new AIAG & VDA FMEA Handbook, 1st Edition promotes the utility of a process-oriented methodology to help suppliers meet the product performance requirements of global automakers.

FMEA is the most commonly used risk analysis method in the automotive industry tool box and helps suppliers predict and prevent failures in both the product development and part production processes. The new AIAG & VDA FMEA Handbook provides consistent direction and guidance to all automotive suppliers, including best practices and examples from AIAG's and VDA's previous handbooks and real world experiences.

The most noticeable change in the AIAG & VDA FMEA Handbook is a new 7-Step approach for FMEA development, which provides a framework for documenting technical risks in a precise, relevant manner. The 7-Step Approach includes:

  1. Planning & Preparation.
  2. Structure Analysis.
  3. Function Analysis.
  4. Failure Analysis.
  5. Risk Analysis.
  6. Optimization, and
  7. Results Documentation.

With this new framework, product design and process risk become more transparent and can be anticipated, calibrated and managed in a more comprehensive manner. New and more robust tools as well as a commitment to multidisciplinary enterprise reviews to better manage the risks associated with the design and manufacture of these new products to ensure that they are suitable for their intended use.

Additional changes include a new chapter on Supplemental FMEA for Monitoring and System Response (FMEA-MSR), totally revised Severity, Occurrence and Detection Tables, the Action Priority (AP) methodology and Tables to replace RPN, new Form Sheets (spreadsheet users) and Software Report Views (software users) and change point highlights from both the AIAG 4th edition FMEA Manual and the VDA Volume 4 FMEA Manual.

The new process guides the practitioner in aligning information between the steps to ensure accuracy and completeness of the FMEA. It helps identify and assign priority to actions aimed to reduce risk, while considering severity, occurrence, and detection individually and in combination with risk-reducing factors.

The methodology fosters collaboration between the FMEA team, management, customers, and suppliers and can be executed with either spreadsheets or FMEA software.

Upon completion of this training session, participants are expected to have a clear understanding of the following:

  • Process Flow and AIAG-VDA PFMEA Structure Analysis.
  • Links between Process Flow, PFMEA, Control Plan and Work Instructions.
  • Process FMEA and Control Plan.
  • All aspects of the 1st edition of FMEA handbook (2019) released by AIAG and VDA.

Course Objectives ›

After the programme, participants will be able to:

  1. Provide a hands-on approach to the FMEA process and its relationship to program deliverables and status reporting to provide the competencies needed to introduce new processes smoothly.
  2. Apply the AIAG-VDA Seven Step Approach to developing Process Flow, PFMEA and Control Plans
  3. Apply the major changes, improvements, and benefits of AIAG-VDA PFMEA
  4. Study the changes and differences between AIAG VDA FMEA and AIAG FMEA 4th Edition. What are the changes and differences in the two approaches? How to make the results of both approaches the same?
  5. Link Process Flow, PFMEA, and Control Plans
  6. Developing AIAG-VDA PFMEA and also AIAG PFMEA 4th Edition and transitioning approach internally
  7. Use of AIAG-VDA PFMEA and Control Plan Checklists to evaluate PFMEAs completed and to develop consistency between PFMEAs and Control Plans in the organization.
