On Friday, March 1st, 2019 the Automotive Industry Action Group (AIAG) announced the Chinese rollout of the highly anticipated new AIAG & VDA FMEA Handbook and training. The handbook and its related training will be released in Q2 of 2019.
A critical improvement for the industry, AIAG and VDA are harmonizing their previous FMEA methodologies into a single, co-copywrited, handbook using best practices from each manual, aligned OEM requirements, and revised severity, occurence and detection criteria. In addition to these improvements, the new handbook adds a seventh step to the FMEA process requiring the communication of actions taken to reduce risk.
Plexus International is a certified global provider of AIAG quality products and services, and will be the official training provider of the new AIAG & VDA FMEA Handbook courses after the launch of the publication.
