AIAG & VDA FMEA Alignment

Currently suppliers providing products to both German and N.A. OEM's are required to assess their products' failure modes and effects differently, based on differences between the Severity, Occurrence, and Detection rating tables in the VDA and AIAG FMEA Manuals. This causes confusion and adds complexity to the product development and product improvement activities of the suppliers.

The focus of the work group is to come up with 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.

This work group is currently working on the new FMEA.
