AIAG Releases New Materials Management e-Learning Platform
SOUTHFIELD, MI: A recognized global standard in supply chain management, the Materials Management Operations Guideline/Logistics Evaluation (MMOG/LE) tool is used by automotive companies across the globe to identify gaps and assess their internal business processes. The tool comprises of 200 supply chain assessment criteria which benchmarks an organization against the industry standards. To help organizations in refining their supply chain process, the Automotive Industry Action Group (AIAG), a not-for-profit organization, has released a new online e-learning platform for MMOG/LE in English.
"MMOG/LE is a great supply chain resource that can be used not only to assess an organization's supply chain capabilities, but also to train on the importance of key supply chain processes," says Daniel Howe, Global Supply Chain Manager, AIAG.
The online course, put together by Terry Onica, allows automotive companies to discover critical areas where automation and new IT systems can significantly increase plant efficiency and streamline processes. The course which takes about three hours to complete, comprises of several modules with a separate knowledge test after each module. In addition, the participant who successfully completes the course will be awarded a Certificate of Completion, sent via email.
"The new e-learning course provides a great opportunity for those who support their company's materials management team to gain an understanding of MMOG/LE without having to come on-site for the class," says Onica, Director, Automotive, QAD. "While the materials managers really need to attend the on-site class, those in a supporting role or who simply cannot get to AIAG headquarters now have the e-learning class as a viable tool to build their knowledge of MMOG/LE."
