About the Expo:

Widely known as the biggest management system auditing conference in the world, this online event provides cutting-edge content from industry thought leaders. These professionals work with standards and schemes that help ensure quality performance for organizations in a wide variety of sectors.

Understanding and Auditing the AIAG-VDA DFMEA

The AIAG-VDA FMEA handbook is the result of the collaboration between OEMs and tier one members of the Automotive Industry Action Group (AIAG) in the United States and Verband der Automobilindisturie (VDA) in Germany. The AIAG-VDA DFMEA format has brought about key changes in the FMEA methodology with its seven-step implementation process. These fundamental changes will have a significant effect in the FMEA methodology for years to come and will also impact automotive, aerospace, and all other industries that use FMEAs. This new format is already being used by most of the tier ones based on the trainings and implementations that Omnex has been providing for them. Auditors will soon be presented with the AIAG-VDA FMEAs in their current and upcoming audits. This session will address the key changes and 20 key audit points for auditing the new AIAG-VDA FMEA format. Commonalities between the audit points of AIAG-VDA FMEA and AIAG 4th edition FMEA will be discussed.
