This course will assist the practitioner in transitioning from the AIAG 4th Edition FMEA to the AIAG & VDA FMEA Handbook. Learn to execute Process 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.

Recommended for core Process FMEA team members, including: process and manufacturing engineers, process validation engineers, quality and reliability engineers, FMEA moderators/facilitators, project managers, auditors, and others with the background and experience with Process FMEA.
1. Understand the major changes, improvements, and benefits of Process 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 Process FMEA created according to the AIAG & VDA 7 Step appproach, 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 Process FMEA. Discussion and exercises to assist the participant in understanding and application of each step.
C. Comparison of a PFMEA prepared using the AIAG & VDA FMEA methods and tools to a PFMEA prepared using the AIAG 4th Edition FMEA.
D. Linkages of Process Flow and PFMEA to Control Plan and Work Instructions
E. Evaluating the effectiveness and effeciency of Process FMEA using the Cost of Poor Quality (COPQ)
F. Build a workable Transition Implementation Plan
