It is hard to think of any ERP vendor that has as much cred in the automotive industry as QAD does, owing to its longstanding involvement in the Automotive Industry Action Group (AIAG) and its standards and guidelines development. Materials Management Operations Guidelines/Logistics Evaluation (MMOG/LE) supports manufacturers in assessing, improving, and benchmarking materials management and logistics processes. This tool helps manufacturers uncover critical areas where automation and enterprise systems can significantly increase plant efficiency and streamline processes.
Along the lines of its recently espoused “effective enterprise” mantra, QAD strives for its ERP and SCM applications to play a critical role in a manufacturer’s ability to meet the MMOG/LE assessment criteria. QAD has developed tools that help suppliers implement the required business systems and prepare for internal reviews and customer MMOG/LE audits. QAD MMOG/LE Answer Sheet provides details on exactly how the QAD application suite can help a supplier meet each of the 206 assessment points.
With offices in more than 20 countries, QAD can provide effective MMOG/LE support to customers around the world. Automotive suppliers in Brazil, Central and Eastern Europe, Russia, India, and China have reportedly leveraged MMOG/LE products and services to achieve preferred supplier status and improve performance.
