The New AIAG-VDA FMEA Software Solution

The New AIAG-VDA FMEA Software Solution

It’s been about 80 years since FMEAs were first introduced, and since then they have evolved extensively over time. FMEAs are an important step-by-step approach used to identify possible failures in design, manufacturing, process, product & services. Today, FMEAs are widely used in a variety of different and varied industries. FMEAs are one of the many tools used to discover failures at its earliest stages in design or manufacturing.

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

Omnex has adopted these changes in the AIAG-VDA FMEA Software with utmost care so as to bring the best service to our software users. AIAG VDA FMEA solution is an add-on 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.

The Software also provides the following key capabilities:

Innovations from Omnex:

  • Teams can work collaboratively real-time on the web based solution (available both on-premise & cloud)
  • Innovative approach single clicks to connect functions, failures.
  • Multiple and broader view 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, Failures
    • Visual rendering on different perspectives of how a Function and a Failure interacts
  • Reduce learning curve of AIAG-VDA, Omnex has made FMEA simple and comprehensive with two views
    • AIAG 4th edition FMEA
    • AIAG-VDA FMEA 1st edition



Key differentiators:

  • Upgradeable from AIAG FMEA IV Edition
  • Reduce learning curve of AIAG-VDA, Omnex has made FMEA simple and comprehensive with two views
    • AIAG 4th edition DFMEA Form
    • AIAG-VDA FMEA Form
  • Multiple and broader view of Functional Analysis (Function Net) and Failure Analysis (Failure Net)


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 the Omnex Software.

  • The failure analysis focuses on the “failure cause” to be at a lower level for AIAG-VDA FMEA while 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;, then it makes it easier to link requirements to testing as required by the engineering “V.”

AIAG VDA FMEA also includes elements Design & Process Reuse of FMEAs. Linking together FMEAs, Process flows, Control Plans, Check sheets, and Work Instructions. If you are an existing Aqua Pro customers, this solution can be upgraded. AIAG VDA FMEA is integrated as part of Enterprise APQP & Functional Safety Solution.
