FMEA – Harmonization AIAG AND VDA

16. October 2017 @ 9:00 - 18. October 2017 @ 17:00



Suppliers delivering their products to German and North American manufacturers (OEM) are obliged to assess their FMEA based on the differing charts for severity, probability and detection according to the FMEA manuals of VDA and AIAG. This leads to confusion and increases the complexity and activities of product development and improvement by suppliers.
The common requirements and expectations for FMEA enable suppliers to determine an FMEA process and the requisite methods and tools that deliver a robust and complete FMEA fulfilling the needs and expectations of their customers.
Beginning with the criteria severity, probability and detection in the assessment charts, the VDA and AIAG manuals were adapted and standardised. OEM representatives were involved (BMW, Daimler AG, Daimler Trucks, Fiat Chrysler, Ford, General Motors, Honda, Opel, Volkswagen) as well as suppliers (Bendix, Continen-
tal, GKN, Knorr Bremse, Lear, Nexteer, ON Semiconductor, Robert Bosch, Schaeffler AG, ZF Friedrichshafen).
With the help of the system analysis approach, potential failure causes can be identified at an early stage in new and changed concepts during the development and planning phases, and their risks can be assessed and prevented or reduced with suitable methods.
Thus, FMEA is an important management instrument that supports interdisciplinary cooperation. FMEA also demonstrates a risk has already been reduced or can be reduced in future by experience, calculation, testing and inspection. This minimises costs resulting from error so that FMEA is of great benefit to organisations.
Personnel responsible for applying the method: moderators, developers, constructors, process planners,
Personnel from product and process development, testing, logistics, manufacturing, inspection planning, maintenance, quality (beginners and advanced
