AIAG & VDA Process FMEA: Understanding & Implementing with Control Plans
This course will assist you in the execution of Process FMEAs using the new AIAG & VDA FMEA Handbook.
In this course you will gain the ability to describe the benefits of a robust technical risk analysis using the PFMEA development approach described in the AIAG & VDA FMEA Handbook, execute a PFMEA applying the 7-Step approach, evaluate the consistency in PFMEA application, measure the effectiveness and efficiency of PFMEA within your organization with linkage to the Cost of Poor Quality (COPQ), and develop an Implementation Plan for your organization to adopt the AIAG & VDA FMEA. This course also provides insight and hands-on experience with how to develop and implement Control Plans for your manufacturing processes.
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 based on the Implementation Plan).

Training in Context
The growing phenomenon of automotive OEMs adopting global platforms with similar subsystems, components, and materials is addressed within the automotive supply chain by the development of product family processes (processes that can produce several part numbers to several customers using common manufacturing processes and shared resources). When a manufacturing quality problem occurs in any “product family process” it brings about the potential risk for shipment of defective parts not only for one, but for several customer products, making technical risk mitigation related to manufacturing quality crucial for automotive industry. This challenge cannot be addressed without a robust methodology that takes into consideration all potential failure modes to all potential applications.
The new AIAG & VDA FMEA Handbook is a critical update for the industry that addresses this, and other challenges the automotive industry is facing. The concept of robustness exists throughout all sections of the new PFMEA development approach, which is presented in the new AIAG & VDA Handbook. The Handbook contains a structured method for identifying process steps functions, requirements, and its potential failure modes.
