This course will assist the practitioner in transitioning from the AIAG 4th Edition FMEA to the AIAG & VDA FMEA Handbook. Learn to execute Design FMEA according to the new Handbook by achieving a deeper understanding of the explicit and subtle changes, along with the high impact benefits that will bring your organization's FMEA to the next level of robustness.
The AIAG & VDA Design FMEA: Transitioning for Practitioners training course gives only a high level introduction to the “Supplemental FMEA for Monitoring and System Response” content in the Handbook.
This class was not designed to provide detailed instruction, examples, or exercises on the FMEA-MSR topic. A separate focused training course for the FMEA-MSR is under development. Please use the link below to let us know you are interested in getting more details on the upcoming FMEA-MSR training course as they become available.
Course Material: Course Material information will be provided on your confirmation document upon completion of registration – if you have more specific questions, please contact customer service at 877-275-2424

Recommended for core Design FMEA team members, including: design engineers, system engineers, component engineers, test engineers, quality and reliability engineers, FMEA moderators/facilitators, project managers, auditors, and others with the background and experience with Design FMEA.
1. Understand the major changes, improvements, and benefits of Design FMEA execution when comparing the new AIAG & VDA FMEA Handbook with the AIAG 4th Edition FMEA manual.
2. Exemplify the major changes and improvements in a Design FMEA created according to the AIAG & VDA 7 Step approach, utilizing the updated Severity, Occurrence, Detection, and Action Priority rating tables.
3. Understand the approach to evaluating the effectiveness and efficiency of FMEA considering the Cost of Poor Quality (COPQ) and develop a transition implementation plan to leverage this approach.
A. Overview of the Major Changes, Improvements, and Benefits of the AIAG & VDA FMEA Handbook. Detailed introduction chapter emphasizing and clarifying the foundations necessary to develop a robust FMEA.
B. Applying the 7 Step Approach, a more detailed, error-proofing driven method, integrated with lessons learned, to create a Design FMEA. Discussion and exercises to assist the participant in understanding and application of each step.
C. Comparison of a DFMEA prepared using the AIAG & VDA FMEA methods and tools to a DFMEA prepared using the AIAG 4th Edition FMEA.
D. Linkages from Design FMEA to Process FMEA
E. Introduction to Supplemental FMEA for Monitoring and System Response (FMEA-MSR): Importance and Applicability
F. Evaluating the effectiveness and effeciency of Design FMEA using the Cost of Poor Quality (COPQ)
G. Build a workable Transition Implementation Plan
