AIAG & VDA FMEA-MSR: Understanding & Implementing

This course will assist you in the execution of Supplemental FMEAs for Monitoring and System Response (FMEA-MSR) using the new AIAG & VDA FMEA Handbook. By attending this course you will gain the ability to describe the benefits of a robust technical risk analysis using the FMEA-MSR development approach described in the AIAG & VDA FMEA Handbook. You will also develop the know-how to execute a FMEA-MSR applying the 7-Step approach, evaluate the consistency in FMEA-MSR application, relate FMEA-MSR to Hazard Analysis and Risk Assessment (HARA), and to functional safety requirements according to ISO 26262. Finally, you will be able to develop an Implementation Plan for your organization to adopt the AIAG & VDA FMEA.

For training delivered on-site at your organization, a one (1) day add-on Application Coaching Workshop service is available (i.e. facilitated development of a partial FMEA-MSR based on the Implementation Plan).

Training In Context

FMEA for Monitoring and System Response (MSR) may be used to examine systems which have integrated fault monitoring and response mechanisms during operation. Typically, these are more complex systems composed of sensors, actuators and logical processing units. The diagnosis and monitoring in such systems may be achieved through the use of hardware and/or software. Systems that may be considered in a Supplemental FMEA for Monitoring and System Response consist in general of at least a sensor, a control unit, and an actuator or a subset of them and are called mechatronic systems.

As cars are employing a growing number of mechatronic systems to provide safety and comfort to occupants there is a general recognition of the urgent need for conducting effective FMEA-MSR. This challenge makes the new AIAG & VDA FMEA Handbook a critical update for the industry. The concept of robustness exists throughout all sections of the new FMEA-MSR development approach, which is presented in the new AIAG & VDA Handbook. The Handbook contains a structured method for identifying mechatronic systems functions and their potential failure modes with special emphasis on the linkages with functional safety requirements as described in ISO 26262.

Learning Objectives

  • Describe the benefits of a robust technical risk analysis using the FMEA-MSR development approach described in the AIAG & VDA FMEA Handbook
  • Apply the 7-Step approach in the execution of an actual FMEA-MSR
  • Evaluate the consistency of FMEA_MSR application cases
  • Integrate the FMEA-MSR with Hazard Analysis and Risk Assessment (HARA) and with functional safety requirements according to ISO 26262
  • Develop an Implementation Plan for the AIAG & VDA FMEA-MSR
