Transition from the AIAG FMEA 4th Edition to the AIAG & VDA FMEA Handbook – PFMEA (Process FMEA)
This 2 day Process FMEA course will assist you in transitioning from the AIAG FMEA 4th Edition to the AIAG & VDA FMEA Handbook. Learn to execute Process FMEA according the new handbook by achieving a deeper understanding of the explicit and subtle changes, along with high impact benefits that will bring your organisation’s PFMEA to the next level of manufacturing process design robustness.
By the end of this training you will be able to describe, analyse, exemplify and apply the improvements in the AIAG & VDA FMEA Handbook. Additionally, you will gain the skills necessary to evaluate the consistency of PFMEA application, measure its effectiveness and efficiency within your organisation, and develop a Transition Implementation Plan from the AIAG FMEA 4th Edition methodology to the 7-Step approach recommended by the AIAG & VDA FMEA Handbook.
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 the 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 the process steps, their functions, requirements, and potential failure modes.
*This course can be tailored to your requirements and delivered ‘in-house’ at your premises or in one of our well equipped training venues.
*For training delivered on-site at your organisation, 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).
