VDA 5 - Test Process Suitability
BACKGROUND AND TOPICS
Various standards and guidelines contain requirements to determine and account measurement uncertainties. Organisations are thus confronted with many questions upon establishing and certifying their quality management system.
VDA Volume 5 describes how to comply with these requirements: e. g., by correct selection of test equipment, internal determination of calibration uncertainty or continuous monitoring of test processes. This two day training contains all the topics related to test process suitability one should be familiar with.
Personnel responsible for planning, selection, purchasing, approval and monitoring, as well as calibration of measurement and test equipment or machines and facilities, personnel from organisations that manufacture test equipment, or personnel concerned with product design and the definition of tolerances.
The participants acquire the expert knowledge to enable them to apply the methods mentioned in VDA Volume 5 in their practical work environment and to identify and calculate the variables which have an influence on test process suitability. Furthermore, they learn about the differences between VDA 5 and MSA-AIAG and a selection of new criteria for purchasing measurement and test equipment. DIN V EN V 13005 (GUM) and DIN EN ISO 14253 T1 are also introduced. It is explained how to provide evidence of measurement system and measurement process suitability and how to consider extended measurement uncertainty near the specification limits. Testing attribute characteristics and validation of measurement software are further subjects.
CONCEPT AND METHODS
During this training, technical lectures and group exercises alternate in order to support the transfer of the topics into the participants’ own work environment with a particular focus on exchanging experiences between participants and the trainer.
PREREQUISITES FOR ATTENDANCE
Knowledge of test equipment capability and/or measurement system analysis procedures.
CERTIFICATE OF QUALIFICATION
At the end of this training course, participants will receive a certificate of attendance.
