AS9100 - Aerospace and Defense Training and workshops
This is a period of unprecedented change as the Aerospace industry is working from
its current PPM levels of 200,000ppm to 400,000ppm and On-Time Delivery at around
60% to a world-class model of 30ppm and 100% on time. At the same time, the Aerospace
industry must change in order to meet the new requirements of the latest AS9100
standards which include the implementation of Product Realization and Risk Management
Omnex helps organizations who are implementing AS9100, AS9110, or AS9120 for the
first time or those who are making a transition from either ISO 9001 or older versions
of the AS9100 series. Not only do we offer a full range of training classes from
simply understanding the standard to implementing and/or documenting the standard
all the way to internal and/or lead auditor training, but Omnex experts can also
come to your site(s) for implementation assistance. Omnex brings our specialized
methodologies for Risk Management/AQP, New Product Launch, and Characteristic Classification
that we have practiced for over 26 years. Organizations who are interested in going
beyond compliance to becoming Process Oriented and/or implement Best-In-Class practices
should contact Omnex at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Training and Workshops
The most important changes in the Aerospace Industry that Omnex sees is a major
push for the implementation of prevention measures using FMEA and linked test plans
and shop floor controls called Advance Quality Planning or AQP. The Aerospace Industry
is also implementing enhanced FAI practices. Omnex conducted a
series of webinars on the subject for the American Society for Quality (ASQ)
which are available on the Omnex website.
Other changes include a major drive by the Aerospace Industry to meet the transition
deadline of July1, 2012. The changes in AS 9100C, including the process focus of
the audit, is highlighted in Chad Kymal's latest book published by the ASQ titled
AS9101D Auditing for Process Performance: Combining Conformance and Effectiveness
to Meet Customer Satisfaction. Omnex conducts Initial Discovery/Gap
Analysis as discussed earlier.We help organizations implement optimum
and efficient systems throughout their organizations.
In the drive for improved delivery and cost savings, Omnex is working with organizations
like Messier Dowty on Lean and Six Sigma

Integrated Management Systems
Integrated Management Systems (IMS) is the integration of QMS,
EMS, OHSAS and other regulations / standards and requirements into a single management
system. IMS fosters the approach that an organization should establish one integrated
system that is best for the business and not set up separate, often duplicate, processes
or documentation to satisfy each management standard. IMS contains company-wide
processes that conform to various management system standards such as AS9100, ISO/TS
16949, ISO 22000, ISO 9001, ISO 14001, and OHSAS 18001 but are primarily established
in support of the business goals.
At Omnex, integration means developing common organizational processes based on
standardized work flows, conducting integrated risk analysis (using FMEAs and Control
Plans for quality, environmental and health and safety risks) and conducting integrated
audits. At Omnex, we are continuing to pioneer ever more effective and efficient
ways of defining, implementing and auditing integrated management systems.
Integration and standardization not only reduce confusion and redundancy in the
workplace, but cost an estimated 50% less to implement and most importantly cost
50% less to maintain. Furthermore, the cost for registration is reduced by as much
Omnex has been implementing integrated management systems since the 1990s, beginning
with the integration of QS-9000 and ISO 14001 in the Americas for Yazaki. Since
then, we have integrated ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001 for organizations around
the world including General Motors and TRW. Lately, we have integrated ISO 9001
and Food Safety Management Systems including an implementation where Food Safety,
Quality (ISO 9001), Environmental (ISO 14001), and Health and Safety (OHSAS 18001)
were integrated into one management system. Omnex recently helped Swiss Colony a
100 year-old Food Catalog and Bakery implement FSMS and QMS standards in a record
six months that included QOS/BOS and Stage Gate New Product Development methodologies
and 8D Problem solving techniques.
Omnex provides training for top management in the understanding and integration
of multiple integrated management systems, as well as the worlds only lead auditor
course in Integrated Management Systems (ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001).

Omnex Methodologies and Practices
Omnex offers training for each of the different methodologies as shown in this link.
Keep in mind, some of these methodologies may be known by different names within
Omnex specializes in the following methodologies:

Omnex can help you conduct an Aerospace Discovery Analysis (or Assessment) or
conduct a Best-In-Class assessment to assist your company in making
process improvements that result in efficiency and savings.
Omnex will conduct a Discovery Analysis during an initial assessment. Omnex will
study your current processes to see the gaps in the systems as well as review Best-In-Class
practices depending on the scope of the assessment. Omnex assessments always focus
on savings and improvements within the organization. The last day of the assessment
centers around feedback and planning with the customer team. An implementation plan,
team, and next steps are completed as a part of the Discovery. Of course, this can
also be conducted at the beginning of an implementation, when the standard is revised
or when the customer is ready for an overhaul of their systems.
Many Aerospace organizations are doing end-to-end risk assessments of their supply
chains evaluating the risk and documenting contingency plans. How can a crisis such
as the flood in Thailand or the nuclear accident in Japan affect your organization?
There is a major focus being paid to the supply chain into developing them using
AS 9100, 9110, 9120 Implementation and Auditing,
Lean and Six Sigma, and Supply Chain Practices including Outsourcing
these activities to companies such as Omnex. Omnex assesses and
implements improvement programs with poor customers using a process called Problem
Supplier Development. This may also be known as 3PSD, which is a DaimlerChrysler
program that Omnex conducted in 2005.
Omnexs core strengths are spelled out in the 12 methodologies in which
we specialize. Each of these practices are Best In Class practices that
can be implemented based on the needs of a specific organization in any industry.
