With the aim to reduce the suppliers’ burden to fulfill different customer requirements on Potential Failure Mode and Effects Analysis approach, the AIAG-VDA FMEA Handbook (Ed 1) is planned to release in recent months, which is the so-called Red Print of VDA term. It’s the outcome of the AIAG-VDA FMEA Harmonization Project for more than 3 years, with contributions from members of AIAG, VDA, and some other automotive manufacturers and suppliers.

More and more organizations from other varying industries have started to apply the FMEA to improve product and service quality and reliability.
