AIAG-VDA FMEA Software Solution

Omnex has designed AIAG-VDA FMEA Software to help companies analyze failures and mitigate risks in the process and design of FMEA phases. This software is compliant with the newly released AIAG – VDA first edition.

The AIAG VDA FMEA solution is an add-on service to the revolutionary and all-time best seller AQUA PRO. AIAG VDA DFMEA provides an intuitive, easy-to-use interface to develop and manage FMEAs.

Key Features:
  • Teams can work collaboratively in real-time on the web-based solution- available both on-premise & cloud.
  • Meets & exceeds Ford, BMW, and other OEM FMEA requirements.
  • Links FMEAs, Process flows, Control Plans, Check sheets, and Work Instructions.
  • Support 7-Steps development of AIAG VDA FMEA for both Design & Process FMEAs.
  • Both Tabular and Graphical interfaces to intuitively develop FMEAs.
  • Support Design & Process Reuse using Foundation/Core/Family FMEAs.
  • Upgradeable from the AIAG FMEA IV Edition.
  • Import FMEA’s from Microsoft Excel.
  • Linked Multi-point Failure, FMEDA, FTA.
  • Powerful Design Tools like Block/Boundary Diagram, P-Diagram, Interface Matrix, Interface Function Matrix/Correlation Matrix.
  • Support Customer-specific format development.
  • Integrates with CAD/Ballooning Software.
  • Powered with Business Intelligence Dashboards on FMEAs, DVPRs, and more.
  • Prepare for the future with the “V Model”, Requirements Management, Software Life Cycle (ASPICE), Functional Safety, and Cybersecurity.

AIAG VDA DFMEA Design process

Innovations from Omnex:
  • Multiple and broader views of Functional Analysis (Function Net) and Failure Analysis (Failure Net).
  • Structured and Tabular representation of all relevant information from Bill Of Material to Functions, Requirements, and Failures
  • Visual rendering on different perspectives of how a Function and a Failure interact.
  • Reduce the learning curve of AIAG-VDA.
  • Omnex has made FMEA comprehensive and straightforward with two views.
  • Develop AIAG VDA FMEA using AIAG 4th Edition.
  • Innovative approach single clicks to connect functions, failures.
Omnex has made FMEA comprehensive and straightforward with two main purposes:
  • To develop AIAG VDA FMEA using AIAG 4th Edition.
  • To provide an innovative approach with single clicks to connect functions and failures.

Omnex believes the greatest savings in an organization will be in the design and process reuse encouraged by the AIAG-VDA FMEA via family DFMEA and PFMEA. This gap can be overcome with Omnex Software.

  • The failure analysis focuses on the “failure cause” at a lower level for AIAG-VDA FMEA. In contrast, the 4th Edition FMEA focused on the “failure cause” at the design being analyzed or, for example, focus level.
  • There is a choice of using the process flow or the structure tree in the PFMEA 7 step. Omnex would recommend the continuing use of the Process Flow diagram.
  • The AIAG-VDA FMEA encourages requirements management, and if the function requirement is used in the DFMEA and linked to the DVP&R, it is most efficient to link requirements to testing as required by the engineering “V.”

  • Robust and tested APQP, FMEA, and Core Tools Solution to Digitalize New Product Development/APQP.
  • Deploy Design FMEA, Process flows, PFMEA, Control Plans, and Critical indicators to the shop floor.
  • Ability to handle multiple FMEA and Control Plan formats, including AIAG VDA FMEA and SAE J 1739.
  • The only software in the market with Multi-point Failures, Linking with DVPR, FMEDA & FTA.
  • Prepare for the future with the “V Model”, Requirements Management, Software Life Cycle (ASPICE), Functional Safety, and Cybersecurity.
  • Drive Zero Defect Culture – with Lessons Learnt, Best Practices, and focus on Defect Prevention instead of Detection.
Operational Efficiency:
  • 50-70% reduction in time and effort for APQP PPAP Documentation.
  • 90% reduction in time and effort for the reuse of best-in-class Design & Process documentation.
  • 100% compliance with customer-specific formats.
  • 50% reduction in managing change Control Processes.
  • Knowledge Management and Best practices.
  • 20% savings on Communication management.
