VDA 6.3 - Process Auditor for Services
The VDA 6.3 process audit is an effective procedure for assessing processes in connection with planning and manufacturing of a product. These audits are usually conducted within the organisation or with suppliers prior to series release, but also form a valuable contribution for process optimisation with already existing manufacturing lines. Furthermore, potential analysis – as part of VDA 6.3 – is also a proven means of selection for new suppliers. The third and complete revision of the VDA 6.3 standard in 2016 had the main objective of simplifying and unifying the standard in order to give it a more practical and international orientation. Furthermore, the contents of the process audit for services have been fundamentally revised. In an organisation that “produces“ services, the service provision process must also be controlled within the framework of the QM system. This ensures that the provision of services is conducted under controlled conditions and thus guarantees the timely, cost-, quality- and requirement- conscious implementation of services. With this training, process auditors can acquire the necessary expertise to conduct VDA 6.3 process audits for services.
This three-day training is for personnel tasked with conducting process audits for services.
This process approach and the relevant customer-specific requirements teaches VDA 6.3 process auditors the basics of service provision. This encompasses general requirements, methods, principles, risk analyses and the assessment scheme as well as the individual process elements D2 to D7. Furthermore, communication, ethics and the code of conduct for process auditors are explained. This training leads the participants through the requirements for process audits, and enables such audits to be provided as services to the automotive industry.
