Leveraging Risk Management Through MMOG/LE

Risk based thinking is a new requirement of ISO9001:2015. As a result, this topic will be part of the next revision of TS16949. Suppliers will be asked to establish a risk assessment process that could affect the supplier's ability to meet the customers' requirements in the event of a deviation of the normal business process (e.g. Capacity, EDI, Packaging, Transportation). FCA, Ford and GM will be presenting their expectation of the supplier's in this new requirement in MMOG/LE.

Rise of Machines: How Industrial Equipment Can Join the SC

Some say that the digital revolution marked the end of the machine age. And that may be true within some industries. But the reality is, the Internet and digital communications are taking machines to entirely new levels of interaction, productivity and utility. With the rapid rise of the Internet of Things (IoT), widespread mobility and "information everywhere," machines and devices across global supply chains are on the cusp of delivering their full value in helping transform the way enterprises operate. David Miller, chief security officer at Covisint - a cloud platform that connects and secures over 21 million identities - will present on how businesses can connect, secure and manage the massive number of industrial objects and devices connecting to the IoT. Not to mention the flood of data they will generate.
