    ID 471 · VDA 5 – Measurement and Test Processes. Suitability, Planning, Management


    Several standards and guidelines exist that spell out the requirements for identifying and handling uncertainties in measurement and testing processes. Companies face many issues in this area, particularly in the organization and certification of their quality management systems.

    The training explains how to determine the suitability of measurement and testing processes, and how testing processes are planned and carried out. Here product development is integrated into the testing process. The program highlights the fluid borders between the related processes of test equipment management, test planning and test process management (incl. the defined roles). It also focuses on protecting against the risks associated with measurement and testing processes. This two-day seminar covers all the topics surrounding measurement systems, measuring processes and testing processes.


    • You can apply the methods set out in VDA Volume 5 in your own practice.

    • You can protect against the risks associated with measurement and testing processes.

    • You know how to select the criteria for procuring your measuring and testing equipment.

    • You can recognize and quantify the factors that affect the suitability of the testing process.

    • You can document the suitability of the measuring system and the measuring process, and you know how to handle expanded measurement uncertainties at the limits of the specification.

    • You are able to circumvent unsuitable measurement and testing processes.

    • You can evaluate the suitability of attributive testing processes.

    Concept and Methods

    The training combines compact lectures, intensive group work and feedback from an experienced trainer. Special attention is paid to trying out and practicing the specific activities in test process management using practical examples.
