QAD will exhibit at booth #1. In addition, QAD Automotive Director Terry Onica will moderate two automotive industry panels.
"AIAG is an important organization for the automotive industry and there is no better place to network, learn and catch up on the latest best practices than its Supply Chain Summit," said Onica. "I am looking forward to moderating the Industry 4.0 panel, which will feature some of the premier strategists in our industry. With the automotive industry being disrupted by changes to the global supply chain and the emergence of electronic and autonomous vehicles, an event giving leaders a chance to share their ideas is an event that should not be missed."
The AIAG Supply Chain Summit will feature an Industry 4.0 panel with Tier 1 automotive suppliers including Magna, Visteon and Bosch. Other sessions will address topics such as international trade and tariff updates, finished vehicle logistics, supply chain sustainability and AIAG's Supply Chain 2025 Survey project.
Onica is an industry leader in the development and global adoption of supply chain industry standards and best practices. She is an author of the MMOG/LE assessment and travels globally speaking about risk and supply chain issues, especially within the automotive industry. In addition to moderating the Industry 4.0 panel, Onica will host a session called MMOG/LE v5 + NP Update, which will provide an overview of the latest version of MMOG/LE (Version 5) as well as the highly anticipated NP (new platform) for submission. MMOG/LE is the accepted standard for evaluating supply chain processes in the automotive industry worldwide.
Established in 1982, AIAG is a not-for-profit association where professionals from a diverse group of stakeholders - including retailers, suppliers of all sizes, automakers, manufacturers, service providers, academia and government - work collaboratively to streamline industry processes via global standards development and harmonized business practices.
