Newsletter October 2020
Dear friends and colleagues!I hope you are all safe and healthy!
We’re still in the middle of the Covid-19 crisis and even though life in some respects seems to be slowly returning to normal, there’s still a big uncertainty in other areas. We had plans to meet for an Odette International TC (TG) meeting in London on September 17-18 but due to uncertainty on safety and quarantine regulations, also this meeting had to be digitalized. However, good meeting with interesting topics and many steps forward for current and coming projects. Brief report to be found below. In Odette Sweden, we also continue to work from mainly from home and most meetings and activities are digital until we know it’s safe to meet. However, I believe we are getting better and more efficient in digital meetings and generally, we are not losing pace in projects. Activities that requires F2F are however postponed until we know better!
On September 21st, we kicked off the Blockchain project however, since we have an objective to review other new technologies than Blockchain, we renamed the project to E A S T – Evolving the Automotive Supply chain with new Technologies. The participants in the project are many and we will focus on two areas; EV battery lifelong traceability (also with references to other materials) and more generally, a gap analysis of weak areas in logistics, transport and customs. It is still possible to join the project, but then please contact me immediately. Jörgen Ljunggren from Altiro Consulting will lead the practical work in the project.
BREAKING! Volvo Cars has now have taken a decision for migrating from MMOG/LE and V4.1 (Excel) to the MMOG.np and V5 (more information on the supplier website). We will coordinate trainings (possibly digital or hybrid) for both OEM and suppliers during Q4 and we are also planning for a regular and a more advanced training. Partner in MMOG trainings is Meridion. Updates will be posted separately to everyone in the distribution list of Odette Sweden and on Odette.se!
All current F2F activities in Odette International are also either postponed or transformed to digital meetings indefinitely and until we are sure it’s safe to travel and meet. All projects and other activities are however proceeding but via digital means.
Please also note that the Odette Conference has been moved until May 27-28, 2021 and I will inform you all when registration is re-opened. Hope to see you in Prague then!
Stay safe, take good care of yourself and each other and hope to meet soon!Best regards

Odette newsletter June 202016.6.2020 13:31:00 CEST | Pressmeddelande
Dear friends and colleagues! I hope you are all safe and well! Since mid-March, we have worked from home and digitalized all meetings and activities in the Odette community. However, projects, TG- and board meetings and other activities has continued with almost normal pace. Also, new ideas for projects, evaluation of new technologies and other interesting things has emerged and will be shortly presented. It’s still not safe to meet in person however, I have made a few visits to both OEM and suppliers the last two weeks and experience that people respect the guidelines to keep distance very well. We also had a combined NAF/TC meeting in Odette Sweden, mostly to keep in contact and plan as far as we can for autumn but also to inform on the ongoing activities and proposals in the pipeline. As I mentioned in the previous newsletter, we investigated the OEM and supplier interest in starting a project on “Ramp-up Capacity Reporting” in the supply chain. There’s an interest in the group but

Hello everyone! So much is already written and said about the Covid-19 virus and the terrible situation it is creating right now, so I don’t think there’s anything more to say really. Therefore, this will only be a simple information regarding Odette Sweden postponing all F2F activities at this time, but we are at service and available, so please don’t hesitate if there’s anything we can do. If the situation requires, we will schedule all meetings as web meetings until we are 100% sure it’s safe to meet. All current activities in Odette International are also either postponed or transformed to digital meetings indefinitely and until we are sure it’s safe to travel and meet. All projects and other activities are however proceeding but via digital means. Please also note that the Odette Conference has been postponed until November 16-17 2020 and I will inform you all when registration is re-opened. Hope to see you in Prague then!

Nyhetsbrev oktober 201930.9.2019 08:00:00 CEST | Press release
Hello everyone! I believe you have already noted that this newsletter is in English. 😉 We decided that all communication where we have English speaking people, must be available also to them. Autumn is here and it’s already raining sideways in Gothenburg. Despite that, we had 25 international guests, for the Odette International TC (Technical Committee) meeting in Gothenburg, September 25-26. We have also had the annual NAF/Odette member meeting on September 18th and at least according to the ten people I have spoken to, it was an interesting and good day. I would like to once again thank both speakers and visitors for coming. Both Mattias Bergman, Chairman of Odette Sweden and CEO of Bil Sweden and Fredrik Sidahl, CEO of Fordonskomponentgruppen spoke on the megatrends in the Automotive Industry from different perspectives, which I believe was an eye-opener for many visitors. We have the whole day on video, so I hope we can post that soon. I will let you know where to find it! Present
