AIAG & VDA FMEA • AIAG FMEA 4th Edition • Live Virtual Seminar

Auditing Process FMEA – Live Virtual Seminar

In this seminar participants will explore the process of auditing the PFMEA utilizing common audit methodologies and tools like the turtle diagram. We will begin by learning about risk to establish a universal framework to audit any risk-based auditing scheme. Using the AIAG & VDA FMEA format, we will develop a turtle diagram for use in an actual audit, focusing on the FMEA and how to effectively prepare audit activities before stepping onto the manufacturing floor.

Next, we will walk through a simulated audit to apply the techniques previously covered and examine the FMEA’s audit trails to assess the organization’s use of FMEA methodology.

Last, we will conduct a live Q&A session for participants to get questions answered by industry experts.
