Overview of AIAG/VDA FMEA (Design and Process)

The AIAG-VDA FMEA draft, that was recently released, has received thousands of comments and is currently undergoing revision. Due to the volume of comments, the release of the first edition will now take longer than anticipated. As a result, Omnex will not be conducting public training for the AIAG-VDA FMEA until the first edition is released. If you are an Omnex customer and would like us to conduct a one or two day transition training to understand the integration of the AIAG and VDA approaches that Omnex recommends, please contact us today.


AIAG and VDA have released a draft FMEA manual integrating the AIAG and VDA approaches. Currently, OEM's are required to assess their products' failure modes and effects differently for North America and Europe based on differences between the Severity, Occurrence, and Detection rating tables in the VDA and AIAG FMEA Manuals.

The proposed standard focuses on having a common set of FMEA requirements/expectations that will enable suppliers to have a single FMEA business process and associated set of methods and tools to produce robust, accurate and complete FMEA's that would meet the needs and expectations of any of their customers.

Omnex will be conducting a day-long training program on “Overview of AIAG/VDA FMEA (Design and Process)” on 9 February, 2018 from 9:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. (IST) at Radisson Blu Hotel GRT, Chennai.
