QAD Inc., a provider of enterprise software and services for global manufacturing companies, announced it has been selected by the Automotive Industry Action Group (AIAG) to provide Materials Management Operations Guidelines/Logistics Evaluation (MMOG/LE) training in Spanish to suppliers in Mexico.
According to a release, designated by AIAG as the authorized training provider, QAD will deliver the course, "Global MMOG/LE Implementation Training: Level 1" at QAD headquarters in Mexico City in Spanish on October 14 and December 2. The course assists suppliers in preparing to effectively implement a materials plan and logistics management system. Suppliers will learn how to complete an MMOG/LE supplier self-assessment, identify gaps and establish a continuous improvement plan. Suppliers can register for the course on the AIAG website in the training section on international events here.
"QAD is globally recognized for its ERP leadership, industry expertise and MMOG/LE training engagements with auto suppliers around the world," said David Lalain, vice president at AIAG. "We are pleased to authorize QAD as the designated provider of MMOG/LE training for suppliers based in the rapidly growing automotive industry in Mexico."
First introduced in 2002 by AIAG and its European counterpart Odette, the company reported, MMOG/LE guides suppliers in assessing, improving, and benchmarking materials management and logistics processes. Global automotive original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and suppliers that embrace the implementation of MMOG/LE have reduced costs from errors, waste and workload for both suppliers and customers.
"QAD is committed to ensuring global suppliers are armed with the best tools and training to meet MMOG/LE requirements," said Eugenio Riveroll, senior vice president of Latin America. "Together with AIAG and sister organization ODETTE, we share a vision to prepare automotive suppliers to become world-class manufacturers -- to perform at their best and become more Effective Enterprises."
Additionally, QAD serves as the AIAG designated training provider for MMOG/LE in Canada, the United States and throughout Asia Pacific. In addition, QAD is designated by Odette to train in Central and Eastern Europe.
AIAG is a not-for-profit organization where OEMs, suppliers, service providers, government entities and individuals in academia have worked collaboratively to drive down costs and complexity from the supply chain via global standards development and harmonized business practices.
