With increasing demand for the usage of complex and improved technology in Automotive sector, it has become vital to select, monitor/evaluate the supply chain partners (suppliers) throughout the product life cycle.
VDA 6.3 is a First & Second Party audit/assessment standard that evaluates supply chain for its product/product group and their associated processes throughout the product life cycle. Following this assessment/audit, a standard has been mandated by many German carmakers for their supply chain partners. This standard has been developed jointly by VDA QMC and the German automotive industry. It assesses the processes and has an increasing emphasis on identifying, assessing and managing risk.
VDA 6.3 standard was revised in 2016 and is also now one of the most important customer specific requirements of OEMs and Vehicle Manufactures. It has also become an important linkage with IATF 16949 requirements and for certification compliance. This also serves the purpose of having a standardized supplier evaluation methodology/tool.
VDA 6.3 is an excellent tool that works as a guideline for performing audits. It defines the audit process, criteria for evaluation of various processes, results of the audit, and redressal steps to be taken in the processes.

Audit results provide clear guideline to supply chain member/organisation where they stand against this evaluation criteria. It classifies results into A/B/C grade. With this evaluation, an organisation can identify their improvement areas to get new business mainly from German Automotive Supply Chain / OEMs.
