According to the news from the AIAG Pucahsing Leadership and Suppliers Summit in Shanghai, China on Nov 28, 2018,  the AIAG-VDA FMEA Handbook (Ed 1) is in the final phase of revision and review now, with expected final version in Jan 2019 and release meeting in Feb 2019. The official handbook, the Red Print in terms of VDA, will be available for purchase after the completion of translation into English and German. It’s later than the original plan for approximately one year.

The AIAG-VDA FMEA Harmonization Project lasts for around 4 years, with contributions from members of AIAG, VDA, and some other automotive manufacturers and suppliers. The organizations from industries other than automotive have started to apply the FMEA to improve product and service quality and reliability.

“AIAG 汽車零部件採購高層與供應商峯會”於2018年11月28日在上海舉辦。從會議獲悉,AIAG-VDA FMEA 手冊 (第一版) 的修訂目前正處於最後階段,並計劃在2019年1月完成定稿並在2019年2月舉辦發佈會。在英文和德文翻譯完成後,正式手冊,即VDA術語中的紅皮書,將公開發售。這比原計劃晚了大約一年。

汽車工業行動組織 (AIAG) 和 德國汽車工業協會 (VDA) 針對“潛在失效模式與後果分析方法”的協調一致項目歷時大約四年,其中包含了AIAG和VDA協會成員,以及一些汽車製造商和供應商的貢獻。汽車行業以外的不同行業的組織也開始應用FMEA來提高產品和服務質量和可靠性。
