“Terry Onica, as a key leader of our industry, in the MMOG/LE workgroup and as an executive of QAD, demonstrates the knowledge and leadership skills that the industry respects across the automotive supply chain community -- at national, regional, and global industry levels,” said Nancy Malo, program manager at AIAG. “As a proponent of MMOG/LE, QAD’s Terry Onica is lauded for advancing the MMOG/LE assessment tool throughout the supply chain community.” MMOG/LE is a self-assessment which was introduced by AIAG and Odette to improve global supply chains in the area of materials management and logistics performance. After completing the assessment, MMOG/LE automatically scores a supplier’s capabilities and provides a gap analysis for suppliers to identify actions for continuous improvement. Onica serves as a representative for AIAG’s global MMOG/LE project, and has championed incorporating MMOG/LE tools and best practices into QAD tools. QAD’s consulting practice helps automotive suppliers to implement the required business systems and prepare for internal reviews and customer MMOG/LE audits. Onica has helped AIAG to develop training aimed at educating suppliers around the world. “Ever since we began collaborating with AIAG and Odette about ten years ago, QAD has focused on supporting OEMs and their suppliers globally by providing training and education through AIAG,” said Onica. “It’s gratifying to be recognized by AIAG. We look forward to working together to support AIAG goals and to help streamline industry processes and business practices globally in order to help our customers become more Effective Enterprises.” To find out more about QAD tools to support the MMOG/LE process, contact: firstname.lastname@example.org.
