AIAG & VDA Design FMEA: Transitioning for Practitioners

This Workshop will assist in transitioning from the AIAG 4th Edition FMEA to the AIAG & VDA FMEA Handbook. Learn to execute Design FMEA according to the new Handbook by achieving a deeper understanding of the explicit and subtle changes, along with the high impact benefits that will bring your organization’s FMEA to the next level of robustness.

The AIAG & VDA Design FMEA: Transitioning for Practitioners training course gives only a high level introduction to the “Supplemental FMEA for Monitoring and System Response” content in the Handbook. This class was not designed to provide detailed instruction, examples, or exercises on the FMEA-MSR topic. A separate focused training course for the FMEA-MSR is under development. Please use the link below to let us know you are interested in getting more details on the upcoming FMEA-MSR training course as they become available.

Plexus International brings your team together with experienced instructors in an interactive learning environment whether you are joining online or in-person. We have always believed interactivity, application, and group discussion are critical parts of an effective and sustainable learning experience. To ensure that these values hold true, and every participant can build the same caliber of knowledge, each workshop interaction includes the following functionality and features: 

  • Trainers & Moderator support: For every session, both trainers and moderators (or on-site staff) will be present and accessible to ensure optimal interaction for each participant, upholding the intimacy of our training model. Participants may interject and raise hands at any time, speak directly to trainers, moderators, and other participants, and share feedback in real-time. 
  • Exercises & Break-out Rooms: Throughout the session, participants will be assigned to teams and split into breakouts to privately complete group activities and discussions, then returning to the larger group to present. There will also be quizzes (or polls) throughout to measure knowledge retention during the units. 
  • Digital Learning Package or Shipped Materials: Depending on the course, participants may receive a hardcopy of the Participant Training Book and/or receive a digital learning package complete with training handouts, case studies, digital workbooks, and a virtual platform user-guide. 
  • Technical Support & Resources:  If this is your first-time training with Plexus International or in a Live Virtual Workshop environment, we have prepared resources and user guides to help you navigate any conferencing technology and will support your teams hands-on in case you need any extra assistance.
