Course OverviewVDA 6.5 Product Audit ID318

This course will allow you to understand expectations in relation to product audit. VDA 6.5 defines a code of practice for the management of product audit programmes.

Increased customer expectations, safety requirements, statutory requirements as well as the increased use of electronic components and software lead to more complex products. Applying a robust product audit programme helps organisations meet these demanding expectations and requirements and manages risk where the product audit programme exposes concerns.

Product quality is assured by consistent implementation of preventive quality planning methods during the development phase, product audit helps assess the effectiveness of that preventive quality planning during serial production by highlighting and manging any concerns.

Some customers mandate the use of VDA 6.5. Applying the VDA 6.5 approach will support organisations in meeting the IATF requirements regarding product audit.

This training course has been developed by VDA QMC and includes a mix of trainer delivered presentations and group work. Delegates will be provided with a full set of course material including copies of VDA 6.5.
