Quality/Business Management (ISO 9001)
ISO 9001:2008 specifies the requirements for a quality management system where an
organization needs to demonstrate its ability to consistently provide product that
meets customer and applicable regulatory requirements, and aims to enhance customer
satisfaction through the effective application of the system, including processes
for continual improvement of the system and the assurance of conformity to customer
and applicable regulatory requirements.

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 Phase 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 can help you conduct a Discovery Analysis (or Assessment) or conduct a Best-In-Class
assessment of the Environmental, Energy Management, Sustainability and/or
Social Responsibility management systems to assist your company in making process
improvements that result in efficiency and savings. These systems can be assessed
either individually or all at the same time.
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.
Not only can we help you develop an implementation plan for ISO 50001, we can also
provide facilitation and workshops to help you implement. We can also of course
help your organization implement ISO 14001(EMS), ISO 50001(EnMS), ISO 26000(SMS)
and GRI reporting.
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.
