When will Revision 5 of the AIAG FMEA Manual be released?

#73
I got in my newsletter following information if anyone is interested (numbering is a bit off, copy/paste doesn't work smoothly in this case - original is 1-10):

"On April 4th, AIAG and QM hosted a webinar on the latest updates to the new AIAG-VDA FMEA process. If you missed this webinar, the key highlights are summarized here.


  1. The "new" AIAG-VDA FMEA Handbook is now scheduled to be released in June 2019.

  1. The 6-Step process proposed in the "2016 Draft" version has been changed to a 7-Step process; Step 7 is titled "Results Documentation." (The other steps are the same except the title of Step 1 has been changed from "Scope Definition and Project Planning" to "Planning and Preparation.")
  2. An emphasis on COQ (Cost of Quality) has been added as a measure of the effectiveness of an FMEA; if the Cost of (Poor) Quality does not show a reduction, the FMEA has not been effective. We are big fans of COQ and offer a comprehensive online Cost of Quality course.


  1. The use of FMEA-MSRs (Monitoring and System Response) as a supplement to Design-FMEAs was further explained.

  • FMEA-MSRs will allow risk analysis of "Mechatronic Systems" to be addressed; mechatronic systems combine mechanics, electronics and computing.
  • The Action Priority (AP) Rating Tables for FMEA-MSRs will incorporate functional safety concepts from ISO 26262 (Road vehicles -- Functional safety). A goal of ISO 26262 is to ensure functional safety is considered throughout the full development process.

  1. The configuration of the PFMEA Rating Tables has been modified. (The DFMEA Rating Tables were not discussed.)

  • The Severity Tables will include columns to rate the impact of an effect on "Your Plant," the "Ship-to Plant," and the "End-User."
  • The Occurrence Tables include a column on the "Type of Control" to differentiate between control approaches such as behavioral, technical and best practice controls.
  • Columns have been added to the Detection Tables called "Detection Method Maturity" and "Opportunity for Detection" to be used to indicate the level of experience the organization has had with the detection method.

  1. In Step 4, Failure Analysis, for each Failure Mode, it is recommended that the "4M" categories (Man, Machine, Material, environMent), be considered as sources of Failure Causes.
  2. As further clarification of how the AP (Action Priority) Tables are designed, it was explained that the designation of High, Medium and Low gives the greatest weighting to the Severity Rating, then Occurrence and then Detection.
  3. In a change from the "2016 Draft" version, the use of integrated software is no longer recommended. FMEAs can be documented using either a spreadsheet (as most of the organizations now do according to a survey conducted by AAIG) or with integrated software.
  4. Use of the verb "shall" has been removed from the Handbook.
  5. OEMs will have the option to add CSRs (Customer Specific Requirements) to the FMEA guidelines in the Handbook.

If customers need CRS, I think they don“t agree the content of the standard booklet.

The release of the AIAG-VDA FMEA Release/Version 1 will be June 3rd, 2019.

It is the result of poorly developed FMEA plans of the past. It is in a 3 layer approach; the focus level, the level above the focus level, and the level below the focus level for which the Focus Level Team is responsible.

No more, "This is our Ranking of Risk." They are defined for all.

RPN is finally eliminated. It is replaced with an Action Priority of High, Medium, or Low. This gives 1,000 possibilities instead of RPN's 127.
The need for excellent trainers and facilitators will be paramount during transition.

There is no expectation that old FMEAs need to be redone. This is for new FMEAs or supplier & customer desire to complete a new FMEAs in the new format.

We are a supplier for Ford, GM and FCA. I am interested in reviewing this book and possibly implementing changes based on it but am nervous they won't meet our customer's requirements as the FMEA book hasn't changed. Any suggestions or advice?
