With the introduction of the new AIAG/VDA Alignment in 2019, Action Priorities are replacing the better known RPN. For users of APIS IQ-Software Version 7.0, the standard catalogs are available in the Data Manager, “AP Catalogs”.

Here is how to load the AP catalogs for Design/Process and MSR FMEAs:
