Competence in automotive core tools contributes to continuous improvements

Automotive Core Tools - FMEA, MSA, PPAP 8D etc.

Do you have enough competence in Core Tools to manage your customers requirements?

WHAT

Automotive Core Tools is a collective name for several products. In order to improve a process, knowledge of e.g. risk analysis (FMEA), measurement uncertainty (MSA/VDA 5), process control (SPC) and problem solving (8D) and/or control plans is required. These “components” are usually included in a package training.

A key requirement in, for example, IATF 16949 is the requirement for control plans to be based on a risk analysis for the process where the design and content of the control plans are adapted to the identified risks.

Automotive Core Tools includes several people in one company as it covers several different areas of expertise and methods. A targeted interrevision towards the application of requirements and knowledge within Core Tools is a good way to get an idea of how well it permeates the organization.

We can audit Core Tools for you, do an analysis, propose improvements and competence increases in a report directed Core Tools as a strategic application.

TRAINING

We train you in Automotive Core Tools either as internal company training or in open training (see syllabus below or on a separate page). VDA QMC has developed a basic 2-day training (ID 417) that ends with certification tests with the following parts:

  • APQP/MLA
  • FMEA (Feleffektanalys)
  • MSA
  • PPAP
  • SPC
  • 8D

The training has been developed as a requirement for renewal of VDA 6.3 certification, but can also be used as a basic general competence increase for internal auditors.
