FMEA Refresher Workshop on the harmonized AIAG-VDA FMEA (ID441)

VDA licensed

Suppliers who supply their products to European and North American manufacturers (OEMs) are required to evaluate the FMEA based on the FMEA manuals of VDA and AIAG. This has sometimes led to an increase in the complexity of supplier product development and improvement. The common requirements and expectations of the FMEA now enable suppliers to create a unified process for the FMEA that meets the needs and expectations of their respective customers.

VDA 6.3 Qualification for Process Auditor (ID315)

VDA Licensed

The VDA 6.3 process audit is an effective procedure for assessing processes in connection with planning and manufacturing of a product. These audits are usually conducted within the organisation
or with suppliers prior to series release, but also form a valuable contribution for process optimisation with already existing manufacturing lines. Furthermore, potential analysis – as part of VDA 6.3 – also constitutes a tried an tested method to
select new suppliers. The third and complete revision of the VDA standard in 2016 had the main objective of simplifying and unifying the standard in order to give it a more practical and international orientation.
With these new advantages, the worldwide importance of VDA 6.3 has increased. Moreover, this process audit standard can now also be applied to further sectors such as mechanical engineering
and wind power. In order to conduct VDA 6.3 process audits, comprehensive knowledge, experience and competence is necessary. Thus, the quali cation of relevant personnel is indispensable.
In our VDA 6.3 trainings the participants acquire the necessary background knowledge and understanding for process audit procedures.

In order to conduct VDA 6.3 process audits, comprehensive knowledge, experience and competence is necessary. Thus, the qualication of relevant personnel is indispensable. According to ISO 19011, auditors are required to continuously improve their competence. This includes professional further education, e. g., by means of self-study and trainings. The validity of certicates is thus deliberately of limited duration, so that auditors undergo further training in order to maintain their qualication.

VDA 6.3 Process Auditor for Services (ID316)

VDA Licensed

The VDA 6.3 process audit is an effective procedure for assessing processes in connection with planning and manufacturing of a product. These audits are usually conducted within the organisation
or with suppliers prior to series release, but also form a valuable contribution for process optimisation with already existing manufacturing lines. Furthermore, potential analysis – as part of VDA 6.3 – is also a proven means of selection for new
suppliers. The third and complete revision of the VDA 6.3 standard in 2016 had the main objective of simplifying and unifying the standard in order to give it a more practical and international orientation.
Furthermore, the contents of the process audit for services have been fundamentally revised. In an organisation that “produces“ services, the service provision process must also be controlled
within the framework of the QM system. This ensures that the provision of services is conducted under controlled conditions and thus guarantees the timely, cost-, quality- and requirement-
conscious implementation of services. With this training, process auditors can acquire the necessary expertise to conduct VDA 6.3 process audits for services.
