Seminar Content

This Executive-level overview can be delivered in 2-4 hours and is designed to introduce the German automotive industry VDA 6.3 process audit. The scope of this process audit is the entire life cycle of a product (or service) including the post-launch phase in the automotive industry. VDA 6.3 is one of many documents produced and by the VDA (Verband der Automobilindustrie), a trade group of the German automobile manufacturers and component suppliers. VDA 6.3 has been adopted by German automakers and many of their direct suppliers as a supplier requirement. VDA 6.3 is intended to be used for internal and supplier audits, but not for third party certification. There are specified qualification requirements for auditors, including third parties doing sub-contracted internal or supplier audits for organizations.
