Quality work is the cornerstone of success in any industry, using principles and practices aimed at consistently delivering products or services that meet customer expectations. It involves a holistic approach, integrating processes, people, and technology to ensure excellence at every stage of production or service delivery. Key components include industry standards, continuous improvement initiatives, rigorous quality control measures, and a customer-centric focus.

Control plan

A control plan is vital in the context of FMEA (Failure Mode and Effects Analysis) as it ensures that potential failures identified are effectively managed. It details critical process steps, monitoring methods, and response actions to maintain product quality and reliability. Critical process steps, monitoring methods, and response actions to ensure quality and reliability. By applying preventive measures from FMEA, the control plan helps prevent defects, reduce variability, and enhance manufacturing process consistency, improving overall customer satisfaction. 

How can AVIX help you with the Control plan?

When working with your process development and management of processes in AVIX, you can also use them for generating a P-FMEA. The next logical step after the FMEA is the necessary control plan that can be used to generate AVIX work instructions. Of course, the same principles can be used for D-FMEA and control plans for products.  


D-FMEA (Design FMEA) is a systematic approach used during product development to anticipate potential failures in design, assess their impacts, and prioritize corrective actions. Cross-functional teams analyze each component, identifying failure modes and their consequences, and rank risks based on severity, occurrence, and detectability. By addressing potential issues early, D-FMEA enhances product reliability and mitigates costs associated with failures. 

How can AVIX help you with the D-FMEA?

AVIX supports D-FMEA by facilitating traditional D-FMEA processes or by connecting D-FMEA findings with Process FMEA (P-FMEA) in a collaborative environment. High-rated issues (RPN/SC or CC) from D-FMEA are proposed for consideration in processes using the part. P-FMEA consolidates potential risks from both D-FMEA and P-FMEA, informing the creation of an automated Control Plan and influencing Work Instructions to maintain optimal quality levels. 


P-FMEA (Process FMEA) is a systematic method to identify potential failures in manufacturing or operational processes, assess their impacts, and prioritize actions for risk reduction. It involves diverse teams analyzing processes to identify failure modes, evaluate their severity, occurrence, and detectability, and implement preventive measures. P-FMEA aims to enhance product quality, optimize process efficiency, and minimize costs associated with failures.  

Various standards exist for P-FMEA, including ISO 9001, AIAG FMEA, AIAG/VDA Version 1, and IEC 60812. These standards provide guidelines and frameworks for performing FMEA across different industries, ensuring consistency and effectiveness in risk management practices. 

How can AVIX help you with the P-FMEA?

AVIX will support your methodology in working with P-FMEA – regardless of industry. We have customers working within the Process industry, MedTech, Automotive, and Industrial equipment. The AVIX FMEA framework supports any kind of FMEA template, but as a standard, we have the most common ones. Classic FMEA, AIAG for automotive (version 4), and the new standard AIAG/VDA version 1, with a completely new methodology and interface to simplify the creation and management of P-FMEA. 


Standardization within quality involves creating and implementing uniform procedures, guidelines, and criteria to ensure consistency and reliability in products and services. This process helps in reducing variability, improving efficiency, and ensuring that quality standards are met consistently. It includes developing and adhering to industry standards, best practices, and regulatory requirements. Standardization enhances quality control, facilitates easier training, and promotes continuous improvement, ultimately leading to higher customer satisfaction and operational excellence. 

How can AVIX help you with the Standardization?

AVIX is a flexible system that can be set up to completely fulfill your standardization needs while already working in the system, and as a Time Data Management (TDM) tool – AVIX is the ultimate solution.  

Keep track of any information needed and set a standard for name convention, separate different types of time by breaking down the Value-added/Non-value-added (VA/NVA) activities, define a standard work method for operators and so much more. 

Standardizing the work method for operators makes it easy to create work instructions for printout, or, use our digital solution AVIX Shop Floor Viewer (SFV) to generate a digital work instruction. You can also use AVIX Shop Floor Viewer to register actual operation time and to perform method audits. Analyze the difference between the planned time and actual time, and act properly on the deviation by using the change management functionality in AVIX. 

The Productivity factors: Method, Performance, and Utilization are managed within AVIX and serve as a base for your capacity calculation. 

You can separate the layout losses while creating the work method and create a library/database for operations that are layout-independent. Those operations can now be reused, and the standardization is taken to the next level. By using the library, improvements on work operations can be identified and implemented in one place and then with minimal additional work, the solution is horizontally spread to any location or usage of the concerned operation. 

PPAP documentation

The PPAP (Production Part Approval Process) in the automotive industry ensures that suppliers meet all customer requirements before production begins. It includes detailed documentation and verification of design and manufacturing processes. Key elements include design records, process flow diagrams, control plans, and initial sample inspection reports. The goal is to prevent defects and ensure consistent quality, facilitating effective communication and collaboration between suppliers and manufacturers. PPAP is critical for maintaining high standards and reliability in automotive production. 

How can AVIX help you with the PPAP documentation?

Within AVIX, we have support for the most updated documents within the PPAP documentation such as D-FMEA, P-FMEA, control plan, process flowchart, and work instructions. Whenever there is a change in the product characteristics or the manufacturing process, all the documents are updated thanks to having all the information stored on a base object in AVIX– the process task. That means easier updates and more control of the PPAP documentation in a much easier and less time-consuming way regardless of whether it’s a production increase, rebalancing of the assembly line, or an engineering change.
