Why VDA 6.3 Process Audit

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 organization or with suppliers prior to series release. But they also form a valuable contribution for process optimization with already existing manufacturing lines. Furthermore, potential analysis – as part of VDA 6.3 – also constitutes a tried a 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
