FMEA – Refresher Workshop on Harmonised AIAG-VDA FMEA


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

Experienced users of this method: facilitators, developers, design engineers, process planners as well as personnel from product and process development, testing, logistics, manufacturing, inspection planning, maintenance and quality.

Prerequisites for attendance

Participants should have well-founded knowledge about FMEA, as the workshop builds upon this knowledge and does not teach basics.


The objective of this workshop is to introduce FMEA users to the changes due to harmonisation and to give practical tips for application.

Concept and Methods

Before the workshop, an online quiz, for which some excerpts from the FMEA manual are provided, determines the participants’ level of knowledge. Then follows the classroom workshop including group exercises. Eight weeks later, there is a final webinar in which the participants communicate with each other, exchange experiences and can ask questions.
