When I put an abbreviation for the first time in a document, is this better if I insert it right after the corresponding spelled out name?

For example, is ex1. better than ex2.?:

ex1. The engineer team should establish an management system (hereinafter “MS”) in accordance with xxx.

ex2. The engineer team should establish an management system in accordance with xxx (hereinafter “MS”).

    This depends to a degree on the publication's established "style", but I mostly see "management system (MS)", with no quotes.

I'd put it right after the name, for more clarity! The "hereinafter" is fine but maybe not necessary.
