Despite increased efforts in development and production processes aiming to provide customers with mature, robust and conforming product, deviations from the expected state can occur
when used in the eld. Depending on the type of complaint, the potentially nonconforming parts or automotive components are exchanged and can be requested for analysis by the manufacturer
(OEM) or by the supplier via the OEM. The VDA Volume Field Failure Analysis provides a comprehensive approach to identifying causes and was thoroughly revised in 2018. This two-day training presents the contents of the
current standard for implementation in the participants’ own organisation.
Every organisation within the automotive supply chain is obliged to ensure the safety and conformity of its products. To this end, the current legal statuses of product integrity applicable in the respective countries and regions must be observed, also the justitable safety expectations of the general public. If obviously unsafe products or products whose conformity to legal requirements is questionable are on the market, those who are responsible shall be obliged to take the necessary actions. These manifold tasks which product safety representative has to deal with are subject to constant change. In order to identify the challenges and implement them in one’s own organisation, it is thus necessary to renew and deepen existing knowledge. This is the aim of this one-day upgrade qualification: It is specifically geared to the requirements in the participants’ daily practice. The newest insights into product integrity are explored in four modules, and the competence as product safety representative is developed.
In the automotive industry, product audits are an especially important method to ensure product quality. VDA 6.5 is a guideline for managing product audit programmes, which allows organisations to develop a classification scheme adapted to their own products. With a VDA 6.5 product audit, you can identify customer wishes, review products in this respect, and initiate potential improvement actions. This makes VDA 6.5 an efficient tool to further develop the QM system and products of an organisation. Well-qualified auditors are necessary for the implementation. In this training they can acquire the specific expertise.
In this seminar we will discuss the topic that, in the use phase of products in the field, may deviate from the expected state. Depending on the incident, the components or vehicle components identified as faulty are exchanged, and are requested by the manufacturer (OEM) or supplier for analysis.
This process is referred to as a defective part analysis field. We teach them expertise in implementing the field effect analysis methodology in their work environment.
