VDA Volume 2 – Production Process and Product Approval – Webinar

The sixth edition of the VDA Volume 2 “Assurance of the Quality of Deliveries” was fundamentally revised in 2020. The main goals are to agree the scope, content and schedule of the PPA procedure between the organization and the customer. With the elimination of the submission stages, the individual expectations of customers, the diversity of the products and the large number of possible documents are taken into account. The implementation responsibility of the organization for the preparation of all relevant documents is emphasized on the basis of past experience. In addition, with the organization’s self-assessment of the product and process, the scope of the documents to be transmitted is reduced.

The change in the release levels, the integration of software and the approximation of the verification of the procedure to the Production Part Approval Process (PPAP) of the Automotive Industry Action Group (AIAG) represent further significant changes in this volume.

This standard is predominantly required by German automobile manufacturers such as Audi, VW, Porsche, Daimler and BMW. Before the start of series production, the supplier must provide evidence that its series processes and the resulting products meet the agreed specifications. More and more companies from other industries are recognizing the advantages of such a PPA process and adapting it to their situation.
