AIAG & VDA FMEA Transition

AIAG & VDA FMEA Transition

Onsite training, Public seminar, Online training

Duration for Online Course: 2 - Half Day Sessions


We now have a common foundation for FMEA across the sectors of the automotive industry which are represented by the Automotive Industry Action Group and the Verband der Automobilindustrie. As stated in the Handbook itself, “the industry is challenged by increasing quality demands of the customer, the necessary cost optimization of the products and processes, and the higher complexity, as well as the product liability of the designer and manufacturer by legislation”. That is why this manual focuses on the technical aspects of risk.
