Overall objectives

  • Understand the benefits of the IATF 16949 Core Tools : Know how to apply them in the industrial context of the participants. (APQP, PPAP, DFMEA, PFMEA, MSA, SPC, Control Plan).

Learning operational objectives

  • Know the APQP Process, its steps and the activities/deliverables associated to each of its steps.
  • Know when to use the different Core Tools during a project planned according to the APQP and understand the links that exist between the Core Tools.
  • During its DFMEA & PFMEA parts, the training applies the recommandations of the latest FMEA Handbook AIAG/VDA of June 2019.
  • For the DFMEA & PFMEA parts of the training: Know how to be more efficient & active when conducting an FMEA:
    • Prioritize and focus risk analyses, as early as possible after project start, on the most critical product functions & process steps.
    • Use this early risks prioritization to decide the re-use of generic parts of DFMEA & PFMEA.
    • Gain time by filtering some activities.
    • Optimize the Control Plan thanks to techniques allowing to focus efforts on Prevention rather than on Detection and on Process Characteristics rather than systematically on Product Characteristics.
  • Practice the creation of a part of Control Plan following the realization of the Process FMEA, according to the requirements of IATF 16949 : 2016.
  • Understand how to apply the rules relative to Special Product and Process Characteristics (identification, notation, association of symbols) when using the Core Tools (according to IATF 16949 : 2016 requirements and applicables Customer Specific Requirements).
  • Understand and apply the IATF 16949 Customer Specific Requirements applicable to the Core Tools in the industrial context of the participants.
  • If necessary, know how to realize a Reverse PFMEA on the participants' own manufacturing processes.

The "Pluses" of the training session

  • Training tailored on examples of internal products and manufacturing processes of the organizing company (Case study used if necessary). Workshops made on these examples.
  • Theoretical parts organized in a dynamic and interactive way (workshops in subgroups, quizzes, questions, etc.).
  • This training includes a 6-months period of post training support (email exchanges, webinars, phone, response time depending on the trainer’s availability).

Organization and resources

  • Each attendee receives a training manual in English as well as exercise and workshop files used during the session.
  • For face-to-face training, the room must have a video projector as well as a flipchart and a whiteboard with coloured markers in working order.

Evaluation mode

  • Level assessment quizzes for each attendee at the beginning and the end of the training session.
  • Hot satisfaction questionnaire completed by each attendee at the end of the training.
  • Cold evaluation questionnaire, to evaluate achievements realized after the training completed 3 months after training, by each attendee, with their hierarchy.

Targeted audience

  • Anyone involved in the imlementation of development and industrialization of an industrial product or process.


  • Participants should have an experience of the products and manufacturing processes of the company organizing the training.
  • At least 1 year professional experience in either production, project management, industrial engineering, quality, product design and engineering.

Trainer profile

  • Holds master’s diploma from top tier engineering school (Centrale, INSA, Arts et Métiers, UTC). Equivalent to Master's degree in industrial engineering.
  • 20 years of experience in industrial design and process development methodologies (functional analisis, FMEA, etc.) and in industrial statistics (tolerance analysis, functional quotation, capabilities analysis of measurement and manufacturing means, etc.).
