Attention automotive suppliers! Be aware of MMOG/LE customer requirements!

Tuesday, August 31st, 2010

Have you completed your Materials Management Operations Guideline/Logistics Evaluation (MMOG/LE) assessment?

Many automotive suppliers are required by customers to complete the MMOG/LE self-assessment. Some companies are using the MMOG/LE because it is an effective tool for identifying weaknesses in plant operations and an excellent method for continual improvement.

Some of the benefits of MMOG/LE include reduced costs associated with premium freight, obsolescence, inventory carrying costs and administrative costs.

OEM Requirements:
Chrysler Group LLC – All suppliers must complete the MMOG/LE assessment by December 31, 2010

Ford Motor Company – All suppliers are required to submit their completed MMOG/LE between May 1 and July 31 annually

General Motors Company – All tier 1 direct material suppliers will be required to complete version 3 of MMOG/LE by the end of February, 2011

Renault – All suppliers must complete a Global MMOG/LE assessment annually

Volvo – All suppliers must complete a Global MMOG/LE assessment annually

CQI-15 and CQI-17 – new assessments join the family of CQI documents

Tuesday, April 27th, 2010

A recent update from AIAG has announced that the new (CQI-15) Special Process: Welding System Assessment and (CQI-17) Special Process: Soldering System Assessment are now available in both hard copy and electronically as e-documents.

According to the AIAG update, “CQI-15 and CQI-17 focus on continual improvement, emphasizing defect prevention and the reduction of variation and waste in the supply chain. The Soldering System Assessment helps frame a common approach to a soldering management system for automotive production and service part organizations, while the Welding System Assessment does the same for welding management systems. In addition, both assessments support the automotive process approach in ISO/TS 16949.”

These documents join the family of other CQI assessment documents that include automotive supplier self-assessments CQI-9, CQI-11 & CQI-12 for heat treating, plating, and coatings. The assessments are part of the customer specific requirements for ISO/TS 16949. Chrysler will require CQI-14 self-certification from suppliers in 2011.
