QAD Joins Representatives From Chrysler, Ford And GM To Discuss Trends In MMOG/LE Supplier Assessments At 2013 AIAG Supply Chain Summit

At the 2013 AIAG Supply Chain Summit taking place at the Inn at St. John’s in Plymouth, Michigan, today, representatives from QAD Inc. (NASDAQ:QADA) (NASDAQ:QADB), Ford, Chrysler and GM will discuss use of the Materials Management Operations Guidelines/Logistics Evaluation ( MMOG/LE) as a tool to support supplier assessment. Dave Doyle, a business consultant from QAD’s Global Automotive Team, will join other expert automotive manufacturing panelists to speak about the value of using the tool based on case studies and supplier feedback.

MMOG/LE supports automotive manufacturers in assessing, improving and benchmarking materials management and logistics processes. This tool from the AIAG (Automotive Industry Action Group) and the Odette International organizations helps manufacturers uncover critical areas where automation and systems can significantly increase plant efficiency, reduce supply chain risk and streamline processes.

“Our global experts from Chrysler, Ford, GM and QAD show how MMOG/LE can be used to enhance the business relationship between the supplier and their customers,” said Nancy Malo, AIAG MMOG/LE program manager. “The goal of the MMOG/LE assessment is to increase supply chain efficiency and provide quality delivery service – this can translate into better business opportunity for suppliers.”

The panel will present case studies on improvements related to inventory management, capacity planning and administrative time as a result of the adoption of the MMOG/LE standard. These case studies will also show the benefits of using the assessment tool to engage senior leadership, enhance sub-supplier performance, increase employee skill sets and positively impact revenue and operational performance metrics. One case study will reveal how the supplier doubled sales in three years without increasing staff.

“QAD is pleased to present with our esteemed colleagues in the AIAG Supply Chain Summit,” said Terry Onica, QAD senior director, QAD Global Automotive. “QAD focuses on helping our customers achieve the highest possible supplier ratings while aligning their business processes for peak efficiency with their strategic goals. This defines the Effective Enterprise, the QAD vision for its global manufacturing customers.”

Whether in mature or emerging markets, suppliers leverage QAD’s MMOG/LE products and services to achieve preferred supplier status and improve performance as an Effective Enterprise.
