We have received quote some inquiries from clients about the time for the implementation of FMEA according to AIAG-VDA FMEA Handbook (Ed 1, 2019). The answer in general is that it’s determined by the organization, taking into account the customers’ specific requirements.

According to news by AIAG, some OEMs in North American have announced the deployment plans during the AIAG Quality Submit in Oct 2019.

  • Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) listed the AIAG-VDA FMEA Handbook as an accepted FMEA methodology in their IATF 16949 Customer Specific Requirements document in July 2019. During the summit, FCA stated that agreement between FCA and the supplier is required before beginning use. The handbook may be used for future programs that are sourced in or after December 2019.
  • Ford announced they will immediately accept FMEA(s) from suppliers using the AIAG-VDA FMEA Handbook approach. Additionally, suppliers will be required to utilize the AIAG-VDA FMEA Handbook on a per program basis with future programs starting with either 2022 model year programs or commodities requiring a Functional Safety focus.
  • General Motors estimates they will begin implementing the AIAG-VDA FMEA Handbook methodology with programs that begin in calendar year 2023. GM continues to investigate when they will start accepting FMEA(s) developed using the AIAG-VDA FMEA Handbook methodology and will announce their transition through their customer specific requirements.
  • Honda North America announced they will immediately accept FMEA(s) from suppliers using the AIAG-VDA FMEA Handbook approach. Honda estimates that on or around February 1, 2022 suppliers will be required to use the FMEA Handbook for new production processes, new production lines and new production parts. Honda expects all PFMEA documents be in the AIAG-VDA FMEA format by January 2027.

On the other hand, AIAG announced that an Errata Sheet will be issued with corrections to the handbook. Some of them have been addressed in our previous news and our delivered training courses.

我們不時收到客戶關於AIAG-VDA FMEA手冊(2019第1版)的實施時間的詢問。答案是:這由組織考慮顧客的特殊要求後自行確定。


  • 菲亞特克萊斯勒汽車公司(FCA)在2019年7月版的IATF 16949顧客特殊要求文件中將AIAG-VDA FMEA手冊列為可接受的FMEA方法。峰會期間,FCA表示在開始使用前,FCA和供應商必須達成協議。該手冊可用於2019年12月或之後採購的未來項目。
  • 福特宣布,他們將立即接受供應商使用AIAG-VDA FMEA手冊方法的FMEA。此外,將要求供應商在按項目的基礎上,從2022年型項目或要求功能安全的產品開始使用新手冊方法。
  • 通用汽車估計,他們將對2023年開始的項目實施AIAG-VDA FMEA手冊方法。通用汽車將繼續調查何時開始接受使用AIAG-VDA FMEA手冊方法開展的FMEA,並將通過其顧客特殊要求宣布過渡安排。
  • 本田北美宣布,他們將立即接受供應商使用AIAG-VDA FMEA手冊方法開展的FMEA。本田估計,在2022年2月1日前後,供應商將需要將此手冊用於新的生產流程、新的生產線和新的生產零件。本田預計到2027年1月,所有PFMEA文件都將採用AIAG-VDA FMEA格式。

另外,AIAG宣布將發布勘誤表對手冊進行更正。 在我們之前的新聞通訊和提供的培訓課程中也談及其中的一些問題。
