The VDA 6.3 process audit is an effective procedure for assessing processes in connection with planning and manufacturing of a product. These audits are usually conducted within the organisation or with suppliers prior to series release, but also form a valuable contribution for process optimisation with already existing manufacturing lines. Furthermore, potential analysis – as part of VDA 6.3 – also constitutes a tried an tested method to select new suppliers. The third and complete revision of the VDA standard in 2016 had the main objective of simplifying and unifying the standard in order to give it a more practical and international orientation. With these new advantages, the worldwide importance of VDA 6.3 has increased. Moreover, this process audit standard can now also be applied to further sectors such as mechanical engineering and wind power. In order to conduct VDA 6.3 process audits, comprehensive knowledge, experience and competence is necessary. Thus, the qualication of relevant personnel is indispensable. According to ISO 19011, auditors are required to continuously improve their competence. This includes professional further education, e. g., by means of self-study and trainings. The validity of certicates is thus deliberately of limited duration, so that auditors undergo further training in order to maintain their qualication.

Seminar contents

Certied VDA 6.3 auditors are able to conduct process audits independently internally and at the site of their suppliers. With this examination and certificate, participants can receive reconfirmation of their knowledge from independent quarters. Moreover, the certificate provides evidence of current and valid qualification in order to fulfil the requirements of customers or suppliers regarding their auditor competence IATF 16949.
