MMOG/LE is a strategic tool helping automotive companies across the world to obtain greater visibility on the capability and efficiency of their supply chain. To ensure that it continues to address the latest challenges facing the supply chain, it is reviewed and revised every 3 years. Version 6 in English has just been released and suppliers should take action now to be able to meet the latest customer requirements in good time.
The automotive industry is increasingly moving to smaller pack quantities, for both deliveries and trackside storage, which has led to more and more tray and blister packaging being used. These very small packaging sizes pose particular challenges for labelling even with the small load container labels already specified by Odette. To meet these challenges, the Odette Technology Group has designed two even smaller labels which can carry the main data items of the Global Transport Label.
The OFTP2 Expert Group constantly reviews the OFTP2 protocol to ensure that it remain at the leading edge of file transfer technology. The latest enhancement -“Partner Data Exchange using XML“ - published in version 3 of the OFTP2 Implementation Guideline will bring about significant gains in time and efficiency.
Digitalisation of the automotive supply chain continues apace and APIs appear to be the tool of choice to fill the gaps and supplement well established digital infrastructures. Odette has therefore set up an API Expert Group dedicated to developing rules for a standardised approach to API implementation and applying them to selected business cases.
After more than 3 years apart, the success of our Odette2022 conference in Prague proves that the desire to meet face to face is still there and we are pleased to announce that our Odette2023 conference will take place on 20/21 November in Berlin.
The packaging of purchased parts is a key element of automotive supply chain management, however the diverse methods used to exchange information during the development and definition of part packaging solutions means that the process is not as efficient as it should be.
ECG and Odette have come together to develop a ground-breaking standard for VIN labels to help overcome inefficiencies in the process of delivering finished vehicles to its final destination. And it’s already under deployment by Volvo Cars worldwide.
AutoID technologies depend on the reading of standard codes called Data Identifiers. Those used in the Automotive Supply Chain have been compiled in a JAIF document to harmonise implementation worldwide and encourage correct usage.
