VDA+AIAG Harmonized FMEA - Basic Training

Course contents will be available once enrolled


Suppliers delivering their product to European and North American manufacturers (OEM) are obliged to evaluate the FMEA, based on the VDA and AIAG FMEA manuals. Occasionally, this has led to an increase in the complexity of product development and improvement for suppliers. Joint requirements and expectations for FMEA now enable suppliers to design a coherent process for FMEA that meets the needs and expectations of their respective customers.

Target Audience
