VDA 6.3 Audit in Action Audit

VDA 6.3 is the German standard for a quality management system. It was initiated by the automotive industry and defines a set of rules and standards for car manufacturers suppliers.

Audit in accordance with VDA 6.3 consists of two stages: capacity audit - section P1 and proper audit - sections P2-P7.

The implementation of the VDA 6.3 standard in Action Audit is focused on the second stage which covers sections P2 to P7.


Action Audit users have access to a predefined VDA 6.3 audit checklist containing 59 questions divided into 6 categories:

  • P2 - Project Management
  • P3 - Development and process planning
  • P4 - Development and product realization
  • P5 - Supplier management
  • P6 - Production
  • P7 - Customer service and satisfaction, service

In addition, the system provides a rating scale compliant with the VDA:

  • 0 - requirement not met
  • 4 - requirement partially met
  • 6 - requirement partially met but not fully implemented
  • 8 - requirement met, but not confirmed in the documentation
  • 10 - requirement fully met

and a proper results assessment:

  • 91%-100% - conformity
  • 81%-90% - conditional conformity

    The era of Artificial Intelligence is here

    If you think that 2023 was crazy about artificial intelligence, wait what will happen in this area in 2024. AI isn't just a fleeting, overhyped fad that will disappear in a few months. It's a substantial and enduring trend.
