Corporate Standards

Corporate Standards is the department in Volvo that is responsible for developing, producing and distributing the common standards requested by companies in the Volvo Group.

Corporate Standards also develops and produces design guidelines, training material and various data systems for processing and searching information, all of which are intended to support the implementation of our standards.

The department is also responsible for documentation of standard parts. Another field of responsibility for Corporate Standards is the co-ordination of Volvo's external standardization activities.

Failure Mode and Effect Analysis (FMEA) forms

Here you will find the link to the FMEA form presented in our Volvo standard STD 105-0005. This is a basic form, which can be used for both Design FMEA and Process FMEA. Depending on how the FMEA form is used in the different Business Areas/Business Units in the Volvo Group, it may be necessary to adjust the layout and contents slightly.

In connection with purchasing, several BAs/BUs refer to ISO/TS 16949 and to documents issued by AIAG (Automotive Industry Action Group), which also include descriptions of the FMEA method. In such cases, it is also possible to find FMEA forms via ISO/TS 16949 and AIAG.
