AS9145 - APQP AND PPAP IN A NUTSHELL
The new AS9145 standard of Aerospace Requirements...
This is a period of unprecedented change as the Aerospace industry focuses on reducing defects and improving overall delivery performance. Omnex is working with the Aerospace industry in helping them meet world-class models of <30ppm> and 100% on-time using true and tested methodology from other industries. Omnex was at the forefront of introducing Aerospace APQP, PPAP, and MSA to organizations such as Bombardier, United Technologies, and Parker. Not only are we working with the Primes, but we are also working with their suppliers. Omnex's software for APQP and PPAP has found traction in the Aerospace industry with many of the Aerospace industry leaders adopting this solution.
AS9145 (APQP & PPAP), the ARP9136 series and AS6500 (Manufacturing Management Systems) are expected to have an enormous impact in the industry and, when used properly, provide significant benefits to both customers and suppliers.
Omnex helps organizations who are implementing AS9100D, AS9110, AS9115 or AS9120 and AS9145 for the first time as well as those who are transitioning 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. Note, Omnex auditor training not only teaches AS9100 auditing but also includes Aerospace auditing practices as per AS9101 requirements.
Omnex specializes in integrating AS 9100 with ISO 14001 Environmental Management Systems and ISO 45001 Occupational Health and Safety. At Omnex, we consider Best-In-Class Management Systems implementation integrating QMS, EMS, OH&S with ISO 27001 (Information Security) and Social Responsibility.
Omnex brings our specialized methodologies for Risk Management, Aerospace APQP/PPAP in AS9145, AS13004 (PFMEA and Control Plans) and AS13006 (Process Control), New Product Launch, and Characteristic Classification that we have practiced for over 26 years. We offer training in AS9145 and Core Tools, AS9102 First Article Inspection, AS9103 Variation Management of Key Characteristics, ARP9136 (Problem Solving), AS13004, AS13006 and other Aerospace requirements. Organizations who are interested in going beyond compliance to becoming Process Oriented and/or implement Best-In-Class practices should contact Omnex.
Nearly all industries across all of the economic spectrum are evolving to meet the needs of diverse customers in a global marketplace. One of the keys to successfully and consistently address customer’s expectations continues to be a robust manufacturing system that delivers defect-free products, on-time, every time.
Defect Free Production isn’t about slogans and high-priced sorting solutions. Defect Free Production is the result of the effort to build upon the successes and learn from the improvements of products and processes. Effective advanced product quality planning takes the lessons learned from past products and processes, understands and acknowledges customer expectations, and enables organizations to make generational improvements on the journey to Defect Free Production.

Aerospace & Defense Services
Bringing over 35 years of experience in integrating QMS, New Product Development, and Advanced Product Quality Planning to the aerospace and defense industries, Omnex has assisted commercial and defense OEMs and major first and second-tier suppliers to develop and deploy APQP and PPAP systems internally and to the global aero/defense supply base, with a significant focus on implementing the effective use of S/DFMEA, PFMEA and Process Control Planning. To fit the industry’s unique needs, Omnex has crafted customized consulting, training and software solutions adapted to specific individual company needs as well as for the industry as a whole, serving in an advisory capacity in the development of the AS 9145 and AS 13004 standards to incorporate APQP and PPAP as standard industry practice.
Omnex aerospace clients have ranged from the largest companies in the industry down to small specialty companies, providing everything from structures, engines, airframes, avionics, and composites to interiors, distribution and logistics services, and maintenance and repair services.
The Aerospace industry today requires AS9100D, AS9110, AS9115 or AS9120 Quality Management Systems. Many organizations today are also implementing ISO 14001 - Environmental Management Systems, ISO 45001- Health and Safety Management Systems.
Omnex is a member of many of the ISO Technical committees that write the ISO 9001, ISO 14001, and ISO 45001 standards. Omnex principals were also the writers of the core tools standards (APQP, FMEA, SPC, MSA, and PPAP) and AAQG writing committee for AS9100D.
Omnex provides a variety of services for Management Systems in the Aerospace industry such as Training and Competency Development, Consulting, Implementation, & Coaching, Software Digital Platforms, and Outsourcing.
Supply Chain Management
Omnex's Supply Chain Management Practices include a number of different initiatives and improvements we have conducted for many different sectors from Automotive, Aerospace, Medical Devices, Power, Semiconductors/Hi-Tech and others.

Lean Six Sigma Strategy and IIoT
Lean and Six Sigma Programs improve “speed or lead time” while Six Sigma reduces “variation or reduces defectives”. Omnex conducts Lean and Six Sigma programs independently or integrated Lean Six Sigma programs.
Omnex-IIoT division provides integrated Aerospace solutions with the latest “disruptive technologies” or Industry 4.0 to have fact-based data in real-time for better Operational control of Machines, Materials and Products.
Problem Solving and Statistical Tools
Omnex conducts Disciplined Problem Solving using a number of methodologies including 8D, Root Cause Analysis, and the 5 Whys. Omnex principals helped write a methodology for problem solving called "EPS or Effective Problem Solving" for AIAG. Our experience in problem solving goes back 30 years and we have helped a number of organizations implement and maintain a culture of problem solving.
Problem solving and statistical tools include 7QC Tools, Statistical Process Control (SPC), Measurement System Analysis (MSA), Shainin Techniques, and Design of Experiments (DOE).
ISO 27001 Cybersecurity
Omnex recommends that organizations consider a management systems’ approach versus an ad hoc approach when implementing Cybersecurity. ISO 27001 - IT Security looks at both Cybersecurity, i.e., external threats and internal threats and takes a comprehensive approach to implementing IT and Cybersecurity.
ISO 27001 adopts the High-Level Structure of IATF 16949 and ISO 14001 and can be integrated into the same management system. The differences are in the required risk analysis and vulnerability analysis and applying controls to mitigate the risk. This is where the NIST SP 800 series of standards come into play. NIST Standards are a requirement if you deal with the US Government. Omnex, who is ISO 27001 certified, is applying NIST SP 800-53 with its 256 controls. This, though a requirement from Omnex top management was also required by an important customer.
ISO 26000 Social Responsibility & Sustainability
ISO 26000 is a guidance document for Social Responsibility. It defines Social Responsibility as the responsibility of an organization to study the impact of its decisions and activities on society, the environment through transparent and ethical behavior. It contributes to the health and welfare of society through sustainable development. In other words, Social Responsibility is at a cross-section of environment, health and safety of its employees, ethical behavior and sustainable development. Omnex integrates social responsibility & sustainability into an integrated management system.
