Semiconductor/High-Tech (ISO/TS 16949)
Omnex has expertise in electronics and the semiconductor industry in both Fab and Fabless Design organization, Semiconductor assembly and in electronics manufacturing. In 1998, Omnex was selected by the Semiconductor Assembly Council (SAC) to be the sanctioned trainer for QS-9000 (and now ISO/TS 16949:2009) and the SAC Supplement, based on a benchmark study of the leading training suppliers of the world.
Omnex has conducted training and implementations with most of the worlds Semiconductor and Electronics manufacturers including Visteon, Delphi, Motorola, Texas Instruments, ST Microelectronics, NXP, Analog Devices, National Semiconductor, O2 Micro, Intersil and many other organizations.

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 as 33%.
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 the industry.
Omnex specializes in the following methodologies:

Omnex can help you conduct an ISO/TS 16949 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.
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.
