ID 611 - VDA Field Failure Analysis (FFA) – Auditor Training


ID 611: VDA Field Failure Analysis (FFA) – Auditor Training

After the first edition of the VDA volume Field Failure Analysis from 2009 and the audit standard from 2011, both volumes were fundamentally revised and combined. The 2018 edition represents an update and optimization based on the experience gained. In this one-day training, the focus is specifically and in detail on the audit questionnaire and on conducting internal and external field failure analysis audits.



  • You will be familiar with the audit questionnaire in detail.
  • You will be able to perform internal and external failure analysis audits correctly and evaluate the results accordingly.
  • You will be familiar with the requirements for authors.
  • You will be familiar with the evaluation scheme, the contents of the questionnaire on the process steps and the planning of the failure analysis.
  • You will know how to carry out parts analysis (standard and load testing).
  • You will be familiar with the NTF process and special processes.


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. Supplementary Material: VDA Volume field failure Analysis
