VDA 4 – Quality Assurance in the Process Landscape. Section 1 (EN)


 Preface to the 3rd, fully revised and expanded Edition

The advancing developments in quality management in the automotive industry have required a complete revision of the VDA volume 4 both with regard to content as well as editorial.

Changes in content were mainly made in the following areas:

  • Integration of a chapter on the 5 Why method
  • Integration of the method selection model from the former VDA volume 14
  • Summaries of the methods FMEA and 8D due to their transfer as detailed, independent VDA volumes
  • Integration of further developments and new perceptions for various method descriptions
  • Dissolving the ring-binder structure: This volume is now available as a monograph available in four sections, which improves clarity and easy referencing.

In the course of the editorial revision:

  • References, sources and standard references have been updated,
  • Spelling, grammar and consistency have been verified and
  • Figures have been reworked.
