QAD Leads AIAG Discussion With Ford, Chrysler, GM And The Global MMOG/LE Work Group

At the Automotive Industry Action Group (AIAG) Quality Summit, QAD Inc., (NASDAQ:QADA)(NASDAQ:QADB), leading provider of enterprise business software and services for global manufacturing companies, today announced QAD senior director, automotive vertical, Terry Onica will address best practices for leading Materials Management Operations Guidelines/Logistics Evaluation (MMOG/LE) assessments in the automotive supply chain. Joining Onica, representatives from Ford, Chrysler and GM who lead Global MMOG/LE at their respective organizations, will engage in a panel discussion about keys to success with ISO quality management principles.

Onica will review how the MMOG/LE Assessment process can be used as a guideline to answer questions about supply chain best practices within an organization through the application of the fourth (Process Approach) and fifth (System Approach to Management) ISO Quality Management Principles to MMOG/LE. She will emphasize how important it is for every organization to acknowledge that everyone in the corporate hierarchy has a role from the top down in the supply chain strategy and, therefore, has a role in completing the MMOG/LE Assessment, and ultimately serving and delighting the customer.

Global Experts Address Effective Enterprise Supply Chain Processes

“The ultimate goal of an assessment is to understand ‘Where are we?’ and ‘What are our gaps as compared to world class suppliers?’” said Nancy Malo, AIAG MMOG/LE program manager . “Our global experts from Ford, Chrysler, GM, and QAD will provide powerful insights to address effective enterprise supply chain processes.”

MMOG/LE supports manufacturers in assessing, improving and benchmarking materials management and logistics processes. This tool helps manufacturers uncover critical areas where automation and systems can significantly increase plant efficiency and streamline processes.

“Effective enterprise applications play a critical role in a manufacturer’s ability to meet assessment criteria,” said Onica. “QAD has developed tools that help suppliers implement the required business systems and prepare for internal reviews and customer MMOG/LE audits.”
