After nearly a year of preparation, CEDEX Training Team obtained the Odette certification on Global MMOG/LE v5 training partner qualification on October 28, 2020. In accordance with the requirements of the training syllabus, CEDEX training team completed a unified training lesson preparation plan and passed Odette’s acceptance review.
There are 16 modules in the MMOG/LE v5 training course. Trainees who are qualified to complete the standard training courses can obtain a training certificate jointly issued by AIAG, Odette and CEDEX. The qualified trainees are generally recognized by the international automotive industry and have the ability to independently carry out MMOG/LE assessment.
CEDEX has long been committed to the promotion and application of the global material management operation guide/logistics Evaluation (MMOG/LE) industry standard in the Chinese automobile industry. In addition to applying technology platforms to help Chinese auto parts suppliers provide technical services in accordance with MMOG/LE industry standards, CEDEX also actively participates in the support and training, and education of users of this industry-standard in China. CEDEX actively participates in the preparation and formulation of the global training syllabus of MMOG/LE v5 organized by Odette.
The 2021 training course is initially expected to be held on April 16 and September 10.
To help automotive suppliers overcome the significant challenges of change management, local partners are working together with the Odette central team to support MMOG users in other parts of the world.
The deployment of MMOG v5 is now well on its way with thousands of supplier sites across the world migrating to the new cloud platform to meet the demands of their automotive customers.
We all know that change management is challenging and accompanying users from the start is essential for a successful transition to a new way of working. Support in local language and local time zone is key and although the Odette Central Team can deliver support in several different languages over a significant part of the working day, we have partnered with B.A.S.I.C.S in North America and CEDEX in China to ensure that the supplier base in those regions can get the support they need when they need it.
B.A.S.I.C.S and CEDEX can deliver expert advice over the complete MMOG process, from ordering a licence to submitting an assessment. Their expertise, however, goes well beyond MMOG and they are able to provide support on many other issues related to the management and digitalisation of the automotive supply chain.

Available for more than 10 years, there are now thousands of implementations across the world. The success of the protocol has resulted in an increasing number of OFTP2 software packages entering the market across the world. To ensure that these different software packages respect the Odette specification and can communicate successfully with each other, Odette operates an OFTP2 Software Interoperability Testing Service. Only products which pass all Odette Test Cases successfully can be included in the Odette list of tested software.
The OFTP2 Experts Group have made several updates to the OFTP2 Implementation Guidelines over the recent past and in order to maintain the high quality of OFTP2 software expected by our industry and verify that correct implementation has been maintained, it was decided to re-test all the originally listed products.
We are delighted to report that the products from the following providers have successfully passed the new tests:
For companies wishing to implement OFTP2, choosing an Odette tested software means that they can rely on the proven interoperability of software which has been tested against the OFTP2 specifications, making the job of software selection that much easier. The use of an Odette tested software is increasingly included as a condition in the RFQs of automotive OEMs who make it mandatory for their suppliers to use a tested software.
