Introduction and Instructions
eword

rials Planning and Logistics (MP&L) is the process of managing the procurement, movement, and storage of materials, parts, and finished goods (and the related information flows)
ghout the organization through the timely and cost-effective fulfillment of orders.

assessment tool has been produced to assist organizations in developing and implementing world class MP&L processes.

document is the result of a collaborative effort between work groups within Odette International Limited and the Automotive Industry Action Group to develop a single MP&L evaluatio
be used globally. MMOG/LE was derived from the Odette Logistics Evaluation (OLE) and AIAG’s Materials Management Operations Guideline (MMOG), which were both originally
shed in 1999.

MMOG/LE Document Revisions

Odette and AIAG revise MMOG/LE at a minimum every three years to ensure the assessment tool reflects the needs of the industry for MP&L processes. This document contains re
hat were completed in September 2009 following extensive discussions in response to comments and proposals from existing users. A summary of the revisions is contained in the
Changes" worksheet.

SO/TS16949 alignment

MMOG/LE comprises an MP&L audit that is aligned with ISO/TS 16949 and lean principles as a system for the identification and elimination of waste. The goal of ISO/TS 16949 is th
development of a quality management system that provides for continual improvement, emphasizing defect prevention and the reduction of variation and waste in the supply chain.
MMOG/LE complements this goal but emphasizes the MP&L processes.

MMOG/LE adopts the same "process approach" as ISO/TS 16949 for developing, implementing, and improving the effectiveness of MP&L processes in order to enhance customer
satisfaction by meeting customer requirements.

A key advantage of using the same "process approach" as ISO/TS 16949 is the ongoing control that it provides over the linkage between the individual processes within the system
processes, as well as over their combination and interaction.

When used for MP&L processes, such an approach emphasizes the importance of:

Ø understanding and meeting requirements


Ø considering processes in terms of added value
Ø obtaining results of process performance and effectiveness
Ø continual improvement of processes based on objective measurement
Ø visual management through the use of charts and graphs
MMOG/LE Applications
This document comprises recommended business practices and is intended to establish a common definition of materials practices for the MP&L process both within the organizatio
with its trading partners.

Automotive OEMs and suppliers can use this document for many purposes, including:

Introduction and Instructions
Global Best Practice Suite

MMOG/LE is one element in a Global Best Practice Suite of tools and recommendations for Materials Management and Logistics processes that have been developed collaborative
AIAG and Odette. The Global Best Practice Suite is a complimentary set of tools to assist organizations in the application of world class MP&L processes. All of the tools are aimed a
helping organizations measure themselves against Best Practice in order to identify areas of improvement. The tools are fully aligned with lean principles in that they provide a mea
he identification and elimination of waste and the application of streamlined and effective processes. It is strongly recommended that organizations adopt these tools and
ecommendations. The Global Best Practice Suite is shown below followed by a brief explanation of each element.

Introduction and Instructions
The Global Materials Management Logistics Agreement (GMMLA) contains operational guidelines for a materials management and logistics agreement between parties. The main
objective of the Logistics Agreement is to ensure that the day-to-day operational relationship is fully defined and documented in order to clarify roles, responsibilities, expectations, a
commitments and to avoid the possibility of misunderstandings and conflict. The application of GMMLA principles is particularly beneficial when operating new trading partners in em
markets.

The KPI for Global Materials Management and Logistics (KPI for GMML) defines standard key performance indicators for materials management and logistics in the automotive indu
Common performance indicators facilitate a better understanding between business partners.

The Logistics Evaluation for Carriers and Logistics Service Providers (LSP) was developed to produce one common Carrier and LSP evaluation that can be used by the shipper, LSP
carrier, and customer. This assessment tool evaluates carrier and LSP processes in the same manner that MMOG/LE evaluates MP&L processes. The document can be used by an
ndividual organization within the supply chain as a self-assessment or can be used between business partners as an audit tool. In both cases, the resulting evaluation provides a
comprehensive assessment of the Carrier's and/or LSP's performance and capability.

Introduction and Instructions
oduction
he Purpose of MMOG/LE

Customer demands for shorter lead times and reliable delivery has created a need for faster, more flexible, and more efficient flow of information and products throughout all tiers of
supply chain. Business logistics plays an increasingly significant role in the competitive environment and only through continual improvement can an organization ensure lower cost
ncreased customer satisfaction. It is essential that MP&L processes are controlled and monitored to ensure internal and external customer expectations are met and to drive contin
mprovement through the supply chain.

The purpose of MMOG/LE is to provide a single assessment tool that enables a comprehensive evaluation of MP&L performance and capability. The tool can be used by both suppl
customer throughout the entire product life cycle, including the early product development and pre-production phases, and the post-production aftermarket/service phases. MMOG/L
be used by every partner in the supply chain for self-assessment, or can be used between business partners as an audit tool for supplier selection and evaluation.

MMOG/LE is a comprehensive assessment tool that measures an organization's MP&L processes against Best Practice including such aspects as sustainability, corporate responsi
and environmental protection. As such, the assessment process can be quite invasive requiring some in-depth investigation by the assessor(s) in order to establish evidence of
compliance. It is recognized that the resources required to undertake this depth of review can generally be absorbed within a relatively large organization but may be intimidating an
consuming for a smaller organization. In order to accommodate for these different conditions, the following guidelines are given on the practical application and use of MMOG/LE:

In the majority of cases, it is expected that organizations will undertake the assessment in full in order to develop a thorough and meaningful result and scoring classification. Whe
assessment is being conducted between business partners, it is imperative that the customer shall define the extent and conditions of the assessment process.

However, in certain operational circumstances, particularly for relatively small organizations, it is important to optimize resources and balance their availability to undertake the
assessment in line with the customer's expectations. The customer shall advise whether a full assessment is to be conducted or, if not, the required extent of the assessment by d
those elements or criteria that are of particular importance or a priority. Clearly, if the evaluation is to be conducted as an internal self-assessment, the organization can decide wh
elements or criteria are to be prioritized.

There are numerous ways in which the important elements or criteria may be selected when using MMOG/LE internally or with sub-suppliers. For example, within the MMOG/LE e
criterion is weighted F3, F2, or F1 according to their relative importance against world-class Best Practice. Therefore, it may be appropriate for the organization to be assessed, or
assess itself, only against the F3 criteria rather than undertake a full assessment.

Alternatively, there may be certain operational considerations, such as the customer or supplier interface / relationship, that are considered most critical and need to be addressed
priority. In this case, it would be appropriate for the organization to be assessed, or assess itself, against the criteria contained only in the MMOG/LE's Customer Interface and Sup
Interface chapters, respectively.

Objectives
The document aims to achieve the following objectives:
Ø Produce a common MP&L evaluation that can be used by all business partners both internal and external.

xplanation of the Evaluation Document

The Document has been divided into six chapters. By working through the criteria in each of these chapters, it is possible for organizations to assess their MP&L performance and
capability and gain guidance towards “Best Practice” within the industry.

While this document focuses on the materials activities within the organization, the following Materials Planning and Logistics Business Model illustrates that these activities are not
performed in isolation. The organization is in constant communication with its supply chain partners. The model below depicts the typical processes and responsibilities within the M
unction for both the material and information flows and the relevant MMOG/LE chapter that assesses the activity. The colored areas relate to the various MMOG/LE chapters, as ind
n the legend.

Introduction and Instructions
xplanation of Criteria Weighting

All criteria within the assessment are important to the overall development of MP&L performance and capability. However, certain key criteria are regarded as being fundamental MP
processes and hence should be recognized as having a greater level of importance. Conversely, some criteria may be regarded as an enhancement of a basic MP&L process, which
beyond normal expectations and/or are undertaken by organizations to increase their competitiveness. A weighted scoring system has been incorporated within MMOG/LE to reflect
different levels of importance. The weighting provides a means of grading the criteria by level of importance so that the organization can identify and focus on the priority issues to en
compliance with their business partners’ requirements.

Three levels of weighting have been defined and color coded and are shown below in descending level of importance:

Scoring/Weighting Each criterion has been assigned a weighting factor defined as follows:

F3 - A key MP&L process that is a fundamental requirement of the organization's operations. If an F3 criterion is not met, there is a high risk of interruption to the
organization's and/or customer's operations and the likelihood of additional costs being incurred. There are 35 F3 criteria, each scoring three points, which represents
approximately 30% of the total available score.

F2 - An MP&L process that has significant importance to the efficiency and effectiveness of the organization's operations. If an F2 criterion is not met, the organization
performance and customer satisfaction may be seriously affected. There are 75 F2 criteria, each scoring two points, which represents approximately 43% of the total av
score.

F1 - An MP&L process that demonstrates ongoing control of operational processes contributing to the organization's overall competitiveness. If an F1 criterion is not m
he organization’s long-term sustainability and competitiveness may be negatively impacted. There are 96 F1 criteria, each scoring one point, which represents
approximately 27% of the total available score.

Ø Document Navigation

Macros must be enabled in order for the document to be fully operational. If macros are not enabled, click on the "Tools" menu above. Select "Security" and set the security lev
medium by clicking the "Medium" radio button. Click "OK". Save and close the file. Re-open the file. When the security warning popup is displayed, select "Enable Macros". F
the prompts and the file will be ready for use. Additional system requirements are shown in Row 315.

The MMOG/LE document comprises 15 separate worksheets. Nine of the worksheets contain background information and recommendations on how to use MMOG/LE or obtain
further advice. Most of this information is found in the Introduction & Instructions, Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs), and Further Information worksheets. The remaining work
are working documents that contain data collected during the assessment process, assessment results presented in tabular and graphical form, and improvement action plans a
associated timing.

It is recognized that, during the assessment process and the subsequent analysis and action plan development, the user will need to operate among several of the worksheets
order to check criteria and/or input information. In order to assist the user to switch quickly among the worksheets and sub-chapters within the Assessment worksheet, two drop
lists are provided in the header of each worksheet. The first drop-down list entitled "Go To Worksheet" allows the user to select the worksheet they want to open. The second dr
down list entitled "Go To Chapter" allows the user to select the appropriate chapter or sub-chapter within the Assessment worksheet they want to access.

Further document navigation assistance is provided in the form of hyperlinks within the Scoring Summary and Gap Analysis worksheets. The sub-chapter reference numbers co
blue in the column headed "Criteria" provide direct access to the appropriate sub-chapter in the Assessment worksheet.

Regardless of which method is used to navigate through the document, the "Toggle" button, situated in the header of each worksheet, may be used to return to the previous sta
position. This is particularly useful when the user is required to switch regularly between the same two sections of the document in order to check information or input data.

Ø Assessment Responsibility

MMOG/LE has been developed so that an assessment can be undertaken on several bases, namely: an internal self-assessment, a verified assessment by the customer, or a v
assessment by a customer-approved third party assessor. It is recommended that an assessment is completed on a yearly basis or as required by the customer.

It is imperative that the name of the company, assessment date, name of the assessor(s), and, where appropriate, the name of the verifying assessor are entered in the approp
section at the bottom of the Scoring Summary. An A, B, or C Classification will not be shown if this information is omitted.

In some larger organizations it may be necessary to use several assessors to conduct a full evaluation. In these circumstances it is important to record the name of each assess
the chapter / sub-chapters he or she audited. This information should be recorded in Column T within the Scoring Summary alongside the corresponding sub-chapter and, if
appropriate, the name of the Verifier should be recorded in Column U.

The customer should be consulted on how to complete the assessment when multiple facilities (e.g. manufacturing, shipping, warehousing) are involved in the assessment proc
The organization being assessed is responsible for coordinating the collection and compilation of assessment information from other facilities.

Introduction and Instructions
Ø What resources are needed?

The MMOG/LE assessment process requires the involvement and support of top management. It is also a recommended to obtain feedback from supply chain partners for MM
criteria to validate the effectiveness of processes (e.g. electronic communications, agreements). The total time required to complete the assessment will vary depending on the
and complexity of the organization. In addition, sufficient time and resources should be allowed to prepare and implement the actions. All activities related to MMOG/LE should
coordinated and supervised by one person. This is particularly important in a large, multi-site organization where it is advised that a MMOG/LE Champion be appointed to ensur
consistent assessment approach is adopted across all facilities. Additionally, the Champion can help to ensure low- performing plants can leverage best practices from high-
performing plants. The recommended people/departments who will be required to be involved in the assessment process will include, but not be limited to:

Top Management
MP&L Manager
Purchasing/Procurement Manager
Production Managers
Administration Personnel
Engineering Manager
Distribution Manager
Human Resources
Quality Assurance Manager
IT/IS staff
Key operational personnel at all facilities (e.g. manufacturing, shipping, warehousing) required to complete the assessment
The assessor may also need input from suppliers, customers, and service providers.

Ø Preparation
§         Read through the document carefully.
§         Identify the people who will be involved in the Assessment process, including top management.
§         Inform participants that objective evidence (e.g. process flow charts, procedures, organization charts) and information will be needed for each criterion.
§         Understand any specific customer requirements (e.g. EDI, inventory systems, bulletin boards, capacity planning, packing, and labeling) before responding to MMOG/LE crit
§         Establish a preliminary time frame for undertaking the initial assessment.
§         Take into account that after completion of the initial assessment, more time may be needed to eliminate any critical gaps identified. Experience has shown that some comp
gaps can take between 3-12 months to resolve.

Assessors should be aware that customers and other trading partners may have specific MP&L requirements that are not explicitly incorporated within the MMOG/LE. It is
recommended that the assessor contact the customer regarding any specific requirements and how they are to be recorded.

Ø Completing the Evaluation

When carrying out an assessment, the assessor should take into account a number of factors before deciding whether the organization is compliant with a criterion. It is not suf
to simply determine if there is a process in place that satisfies the condition. The organization should also check that the process is understood and adhered to, and the output
process is delivering the required or expected outcome on a consistent basis. Objective evidence that the process is stable and well established in the organization is key.

Throughout the assessment, “shall” indicates a situation where adherence to the criteria is mandatory to the materials management function.

There are three possible responses that can be made against each criterion, which are defined as follows:

indicates that the organization is COMPLIANT with the criterion.

indicates that the criterion is considered NON APPLICABLE by the organization and its customer(s).
The definition and administrative process for managing N/A criteria are explained in detail in the next section.

A blank response indicates that the organization is NON COMPLIANT with the criterion.

The process for entering a response is semi-automated. A response is recorded by clicking onto the box in Column D within the Assessment worksheet. The first click on the bo
display a "ü", a second click on the box will display "N/A", a third click will display a blank box. The box may be clicked as many times as necessary to display the required resp
Please allow at least one second between clicks, otherwise a warning message will be displayed.

The content of the box automatically populates the Scoring Summary and Gap Analysis worksheets.

Alongside each criterion within the Assessment there is a COMMENT box that should be used to record any information regarding the assessment response. For example, the
assessor could record details of any objective evidence, the reason for a non-compliance, or any other information that might assist in understanding the operating conditions at
time of the assessment. It is a mandatory requirement to record in the COMMENT box the reasons why a criterion is deemed Non Applicable. The content of the COMM
box is transferred automatically to the Gap Analysis worksheet.

Within some of the criteria, references and examples--prefixed by "e.g."--have been included to assist the assessor's understanding. However, examples included in the criteria
not be considered to be an exhaustive or all-inclusive listing.

To assist an assessor seeking further clarification on a particular topic or criterion, a MMOG/LE Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) process has been defined in the FAQ worksh
An FAQ website has been established to display frequent requests and their corresponding responses. New FAQs are reviewed on a quarterly basis by an MMOG/LE FAQ Com
and the website is updated accordingly. FAQ information can be accessed by using the website address shown in the FAQ worksheet.

Introduction and Instructions
Ø "Non Applicable" Criteria

MMOG/LE is a best practice assessment tool that comprises the fundamental logistics activities required to be undertaken within an efficient and effective organization. Howeve
there may be exceptional cases where an organization believes it does not undertake certain logistics activities because of the nature of its business and hence a particular crite
or group of criteria are considered irrelevant or "non applicable”.

There is a formal process to be followed for the designation and approval of Non Applicable criteria, which is explained in this section.

In the initial assessment, the assessor should identify which criteria are considered "Non Applicable" by entering a "N/A" in the appropriate box in column D of the Assessment s
The assessor shall then record the reasons why the criterion is considered "Non Applicable" in the Comment box alongside the criterion. Any "N/A" response is automatically
transferred and displayed in the Scoring Summary worksheet including the total number of "N/A" criteria within the assessment, which is reported in Row 140 of the Scoring Sum

At this stage of the assessment process, all "N/A" criteria are considered as "Non Compliant" and hence the scoring and resulting classification does not include the points asso
with each of the "N/A" criteria. This condition is confirmed within the Scoring Summary where all "N/A" information and data are shown in RED.

In order for points associated with the "N/A" criteria to be included in the scoring and classification, it is necessary for the customer to approve the designation of all "N/A" criteria
When approval is given, the following information shall be recorded in the appropriate Comment box in the Assessment worksheet:

§ Name of the customer representative providing the approval


§ Date of approval
§ Reason why the criterion is considered "Non Applicable"
The name of the customer representative shall also be entered in Cell J141 at the bottom of the Scoring Summary.

After input of the customer approval name, all "N/A" criteria will be considered as "Compliant", the associated points will be included in the scoring and classification results, and
"N/A" data within the Scoring Summary will be shown in GREEN. All "N/A" criteria NOT approved by the customer shall be changed by the assessor to a "Non Compliant" statu
recording a "blank" in the Assessment worksheet - an appropriate comment may be recorded in the COMMENT box alongside the relevant criterion.

By clicking on the "View Non Applicable" button in the header of the Scoring Summary worksheet, the user can see a full listing of all "N/A" criteria.

Clicking on the "Toggle" button will return the user to the Scoring Summary worksheet.

NOTE: The approval of "Non Applicable" criteria by a customer shall not be presumed to be acceptance by all customers.

Ø Scoring Summary and Radar Charts

As explained in the Introduction section, 3 points are awarded for each compliant F3 criterion, 2 points for each compliant F2 criterion, and 1 point for each compliant F1 criterio
results of the assessment are transferred automatically to the Scoring Summary worksheet where the overall score and classification are shown. As stated earlier, the classifica
not display unless the Company Name, Assessor Name, and Assessment Date have been entered at the bottom of the Scoring Summary.

The assessment result and classification are detailed in the Scoring Summary worksheet. In order to present the outcome in a more visual form, the results are presented graph
in a radar chart format. The Scoring Summary Results chart contained in the Radar Chart worksheet shows the overall score attained for each chapter along with the total score
resulting classification. A typical result is shown below:

Six additional radar charts, one for each MMOG/LE chapter, which show the individual sub-chapter scores are contained in the Radar Charts-Subchapter worksheet. Below the
individual charts is a single radar chart that shows the scores for ALL the sub-chapters. Each chart shows the result as a percentage of the maximum score attainable.
The content of the Radar Charts reflects the status of the "N/A" condition, i.e. if the "N/A" criteria are not approved by the customer, the associated points are not included in the
results.

Note: The Radar Charts may be reformatted by the user and copied into other files if necessary.

Introduction and Instructions
A summary of the current score and classification can be seen at any time by clicking on the "Current Score" button situated in the header of the Assessment, Scoring Summary
Analysis, Progression Chart, and Radar Charts worksheets. This feature is intended to provide the user with a rapid means of reviewing the assessment status by showing the
following summarized information:

§ number of F3 criteria that are compliant, non compliant and non applicable

§ number of F2 criteria that are compliant, non compliant and non applicable

§ number of F1 criteria that are compliant, non compliant and non applicable

§ total number of criteria that are compliant, non compliant and non applicable

§ total score and percentage

§ classification (A, B, or C)

Ø Gap Analysis

A primary objective of the Gap Analysis is to record details of all non compliant criteria and track the progress and timing until compliance is achieved. The Gap Analysis worksh
provides a means of recording the content, responsibility, timing, and cost of improvement action plans.
To aid the user, a summary of the number of compliant, non compliant and non applicable criteria in the assessment is shown immediately below the header within the Gap Ana
worksheet. The next section explains the content of the Gap Analysis and how an action plan should be developed.

All responses and comments from the Assessment worksheet are transferred automatically into the Gap Analysis. Completion Dates should be entered for all criteria that are
designated as compliant. Only valid completion dates will be accepted, i.e. the current date or earlier. Otherwise, an "Invalid Completion Date" prompt will appear asking the use
either "re-try" or "cancel" the routine.

The "Select Filter Option" box in the header of the Gap Analysis worksheet includes the following 15 pre-defined filter options:
§ ALL Criteria - displays details for all the criteria within the assessment
§ Non Compliant Criteria - displays details of only those criteria that are designated as Non Compliant
§ Compliant Criteria - displays details of only those criteria that are designated as Compliant
§ F1 Criteria - displays details of only F1 criteria
§ F2 Criteria - displays details of only F2 criteria
§ F3 Criteria - displays details of only F3 criteria
§ Missing Completion Date - displays details of only those criteria that are designated as Compliant and have no Completion Date in the Gap Analysis

Introduction and Instructions
The filters have been selected to allow the user to directly access a listing of criteria that have a specific status so that the processes of analysis and data maintenance are simp
The Missing Completion Date, Missing Target Date, Missing Action Plans, Invalid Completion Date, and Past Due Target Date filters are particularly helpful in maintaining data
accuracy, especially prior to creating a new Progression Chart.

It is possible to apply an alternative filter by taking the following steps:

§ Click on in any column heading.

§ Select a value from the drop-down list OR

§ To type in your own filter criteria, select "(Custom…)" in the drop-down list.

Note: When you apply a filter to a column, the arrow will turn blue ( ).

The only values visible in the other columns will be a subset of the currently filtered range.

Ø Developing an Action Plan

The "Show non compliant criteria" filter in the Gap Analysis provides a full listing of all the non compliant criteria within the assessment and, in conjunction with the criteria weigh
(F3, F2, or F1), gives a very clear indication of the priorities for improvement activities.

An action plan should be developed for all the non compliant criteria. It is important to analyze carefully each non compliant criteria before defining a problem resolution measur
recording the action plan and associated target date within the appropriate cells of the Gap Analysis. Only valid target dates will be accepted, i.e. a date later than the current da
Otherwise an "Invalid Target Date" prompt will appear asking the user to either "re-try" or "cancel" the routine.

The Gap Analysis has sufficient functionality to act as a continual improvement project management tool. Key elements such as the current state, gap to be closed, improvemen
action plans, person(s) responsible, and target date for completion should all be recorded.

The "Target Date" information is used to drive the Progression Chart (explained in the next section). Based on the "Target Date" for each improvement activity the Progression C
shows graphically how the organization's assessment score and classification will develop over time. This chart is particularly useful when monitoring progress against internal o
customer-defined improvement targets.

It is recognized that organizations may want to use an alternative or more comprehensive / established project management tool. However, it is important that, as a minimum, th
Target Date for each improvement activity is updated within the Gap Analysis so that a Progression Chart can be created.

In order to be effective, it is imperative that the support of top management is obtained and resources are allocated to prepare and implement the action plans in a timely manne
recommended minimum review period is monthly for project leaders, and quarterly for executive management, until all action items are resolved, stabilized, and closed. Howev
reviews may be held more frequently if deemed necessary by executive management or the customer.

Introduction and Instructions
Ø The Progression Chart

The Progression Chart provides a graphical representation of the Scoring and Classification progress according to the action plan "Target Dates" entered in the Gap Analysis.

The Progression Chart is in the format of a bar chart. The first bar displays how many criteria are compliant as of the Assessment Date recorded in the Scoring Summary worksh
The bar shows the number of compliant criteria, the number of non compliant criteria by weighting (F3, F2, and F1), and those that are N/A or have "No Target Date". Subseque
bars show the status at the end of each corresponding month based on the Target Dates entered in the Gap Analysis. The month ending and resulting A, B, or C classification is
shown on the horizontal axis. Similarly, the progress of the Total Score % is tracked monthly and shown as a line graph on the bar chart.

A Progression Chart is created and overwrites the existing version following each new request. A current version of the Progression Chart can be retained by creating a Chart D
worksheet. A picture of the Progression Chart is copied automatically into the corresponding Chart Data worksheet. The process by which a Chart Data worksheet is created is
explained later in this section.

Note: The formatting of the chart may require some adjustment by the user when there is a high level of information being displayed.

Introduction and Instructions
Before creating a Progression Chart, it is important that the data within the Gap Analysis with respect to Completion Dates, Target Dates, and Action Plans are accurate and up
date. It is recommended that any missing or invalid data be corrected prior to creating a Progression Chart by using the following pre-selected filters within the Gap Analysis:

§ Missing Completion Dates

§ Missing Target Dates

§ Missing Action Plans

§ Invalid Completion Dates

§ Past Due Target Dates

§ N/A Criteria with Target Dates

§ N/A Criteria with Completion Dates

§ N/A Criteria Missing Comments

After input of Completion Dates for compliant criteria and new/modified Target Dates for non compliant criteria, a Progression Chart can be produced by clicking on the "Create
Progression Chart" button situated in the header of the Gap Analysis worksheet or, alternatively, clicking on the "Update Chart Data" button in the header of the Progression Cha
worksheet.

When either of these features is selected, the system automatically checks the consistency and completeness of Completion and Target Date information recorded in the Gap

for updating MMOG/LE to Version 3 has reviewed and incorporated more than 130 requests received from OEMs, suppliers, assessors and users from all over the
world.
There have been three key drivers for change:
● a need for more definition and greater clarity of meaning for each of the criteria to avoid misunderstanding and misinterpretation
● to provide visual tools to summarize the organization's current and future state by making the presentation of results more simple and meaningful, particularly for
top management
● to make the document more user-friendly by providing aids to navigate around the document more quickly and accurately.

Below is a summary of the changes that have been made to Version 3.

1) Introduction and Instructions

More detailed instructions have been incorporated to address key questions submitted by existing users and to introduce the new features and functionality
within MMOG/LE. The following key points have been explained in more detail:

● MMOG/LE's compatibility with ISO/TS16949 and Lean


● an explanation of how to use the MMOG/LE as a “light” version for Tier 2 - Tier N suppliers
● the approach to be adopted for recording and managing Non Applicable (N/A) criteria

2) Assessment

All criteria within the Assessment section have been reviewed and updated for greater clarity of understanding and to accommodate global usage and
interpretation. Each “Why?” statement has been strengthened further by providing additional explanation of the benefits to the organization (e.g. cost and waste
reduction) of being compliant to the criteria. A comment cell has been added for each criterion.

The recording and management of N/A criteria has been improved and formalized. The status of a criterion may now be designated compliant (ü), non applicable
(N/A), or non compliant ( ) by successively clicking on the appropriate scoring cell within the Assessment worksheet.

3) Scoring Summary

The Scoring Summary worksheet has several additional features including:

● the classification is not displayed until the Company's name, assessor's name and assessment date have been entered

● the number of N/A criteria in each chapter table and the scoring summary table

403304957.xls 143 of 165 Date Printed: 11/29/2018


MMOG/LE
● a "Customer Approval for Non Applicable Criteria" section has been introduced which automatically records the total number of N/A criteria in the
Assessment and allows the user to enter the name of the customer representative confirming approval
● color coding of the N/A status - RED for non approved criteria, GREEN for customer approved criteria.

MMOG/LE
4) Gap Analysis

The Gap Analysis has been enhanced to better support the development and management of action plans. Several user-friendly functions have been added
including filtering options, data validation, and color coding to highlight areas that require attention. The corresponding comments from the Assessment are
displayed in the Gap Analysis for each criterion. The Gap Analysis has been extended to accommodate Target Dates for non compliant criteria and Completion
Dates for compliant criteria. The addition of these dates allows the organization to create a Progression Chart when the data within the Gap Analysis is fully
updated. To assist in maintaining data accuracy 15 pre-defined filter options have been incorporated into the worksheet.

5) Radar Charts

A total of eight Radar Charts have been introduced to display the total score by chapter, the score for each chapter and all sub chapters. The Radar Charts
provide a summarized and visual representation of the assessment results which should be used by top management to understand the organizations current
status and improvement opportunities and priorities.

6) Progression Chart
The Progression Chart is a new addition which provides a graphical representation of the scoring progress for attaining level “A” classification based on the
action plan target dates entered in the Gap Analysis. This chart may also be used by the customer or top management to assess if the improvement activities are
correctly prioritized and being conducted in a timely manner.

7) Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

The FAQ section is a new addition to assist organizations seeking further clarification on a particular topic or criteria. The FAQ section provides instructions on
how to submit questions to MMOG/LE subject matter experts. FAQs and their corresponding responses can be accessed on AIAG’s web site.

8) Further Information
This section is an addition that provides information on how organizations or users can obtain MMOG/LE training and translated versions. This section also
includes information on associated publications and web sites.

9) Technical Enhancements

Enhancements have been made to the MMOG/LE to be more user-friendly and support easier navigation. The features include:
● "Go To" drop down lists - to access other MMOG/LE worksheets or specific chapters/sub chapters of the Assessment
● hyperlinks - to access specific criteria or additional information
● toggle key - to return to the previous position within the document
● filter options - 15 pre-determined filters within the Gap Analysis
● "Current Score" display
● Error messages for invalid dates, incorrect data etc.

For more detailed information and explanation on the topics covered above, please read the Introduction and Instructions section.
