VDA 5 – Measurement and Inspection Processes. Capability, Planning, Management (ID 471)

ID 02-199
Language English
Clock 2 Days
VDA licensed

Several standards and guidelines exist that spell out the requirements for identifying and handling uncertainties in measurement and inspection processes. Companies face many issues in this area, particularly in the organization and certification of their quality management systems.

The training explains how to determine the capability of measurement and inspection processes, and how inspection processes are planned and carried out. Here product development is integrated into the inspection process. The program highlights the fluid borders between the related processes of inspection equipment management, inspection planning and inspection process management (incl. the defined roles). It also focuses on protecting against the risks associated with measurement and inspection processes. This two-day seminar covers all the topics surrounding measurement systems, measuring processes and inspection processes.
