In a significant milestone, MOMi, the expert division of ATS Global, is celebrating its 10th anniversary, marking a decade of providing independent education and business consultancy services to the manufacturing industry worldwide.
Established on January 1, 2014, MOMi quickly rose to prominence as the exclusive global education provider for the Manufacturing Enterprise Solution Association’s (MESA International) MES/MOM Global Education Program. This program, introduced to the industry in 2011, has been providing unique product-independent education for manufacturing operation management systems.
The original architects of MESA’s education programs, namely Jan Snoeij, John Jackiw, Charlie Gifford, Dennis Brandl, Gerhard Greeff and Michel Devos shared their expertise and vast knowledge, laying the foundations for future manufacturing practices.
MOMi’s collaboration with MESA International was just the beginning of its journey. The organization has continually expanded its education offerings and ventured into business consultancy services to support clients in navigating the evolving landscape of digital transformation.
In September 2016, Jan Snoeij assumed the role of President of MOMi, ushering in a new era. With over 30 years of experience, Snoeij, along with industry veterans Gerard Ipskamp and Mathijs Philips, embarked on developing and delivering a fresh set of education programs and workshops. These include offerings such as “IT/OT Convergence for a Connected Factory,” “Applying ISA-95 for Operations,” and “Manufacturing Maturity to Improve Performance.”
Simultaneously, MOMi launched its Business Consultancy services, leveraging the team’s wealth of knowledge and experience to provide direct support to clients. The introduction of “Control the Business Change Cycle,” an exclusive best practice approach, reflects MOMi’s commitment to guiding clients through every stage of the business transformation process.
Sarah Knight, current MOMi Team Lead and Global Education Program Manager, reflected on the past 10 years, expressing excitement about MOMi’s continuous evolution. She emphasized the team’s passion for contributing to the dynamic and progressing manufacturing industry, making a positive impact on professional development and corporate potential. Looking ahead, Knight anticipates exciting times for MOMi in the next decades.
The article concludes by acknowledging the contributions of the entire MOMi team, past, present, and future, as well as key figures like Mike James, Deborah Pritchard, Jan Snoeij, Gerard Ipskamp, Mathijs Philips, Tobias Bos, Robbert Ottenhof, and the ATS Global family, all of whom have played pivotal roles in shaping MOMi’s future.
