AS9100 - Aerospace and Defense Training and workshops

This is a period of unprecedented change as the Aerospace industry is working from its currently unacceptably high defect and consistently poor delivery performance, world-class model of <30ppm and 100% on time. At the same time, Aerospace management systems are evolving to meet the new requirements of the AS9100 standards which include the implementation of enterprise Risk Management strategies and AS9145 prescribing the Aerospace approach to product realization incorporating Advanced Product Quality Planning (APQP) and Production Part Approval.

AS9145 (APQP & PPAP), the AS13000 series and AS6500 (Manufacturing Management Systems) are expected to have 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 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, AS13000 (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 at info@omnex.com.

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.

Omnex provides management consulting that elevate the performance of client organizations

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 implementations.

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, IATF 16949, ISO 22000, ISO 9001, ISO 14001, and ISO 45001 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 (ISO 45001) 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 ISO 45001).

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 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 APQP and PPAP, AS 9100D, 9115, 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. We are conducting this program for several large Aerospace organizations.

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.
