ID 471: VDA 5 – Capability of Measurement Processes

Various standards and guidelines contain requirements to determine and account measurement uncertainties. Thus organizations are 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.



  • You will be able to use the methods specified in VDA Volume 5 in your practical environment.
  • You will be able to recognize and calculate the influencing variables on test process suitability.
  • You will be familiar with the differences between VDA 5 and the MSA of the AIAG.
  • You will be familiar with a selection of criteria for the procurement of measuring and test equipment.
  • You will be familiar with DIN V EN V 13005 (GUM) and DIN EN ISO 14253 T1.
  • You will be able to demonstrate measurement system and measurement process suitability and know how extended measurement uncertainties are taken into account at the specification limits.
  • You will know how attributive characteristics are tested as well as how measurement software is validated.


The training alternates between technical presentations and group work. Group work supports the transfer of what has been learned into your own working practice. Special emphasis is placed on opportunities to exchange experiences.

Prerequisites for participation
