driving worldwide business excellence

Automotive (IATF 16949; Automotive/Production Core Tools) Consulting and Training

Omnex has worked with most of the major Automotive and Truck OEMS and Tier Ones worldwide. In fact, Omnex has been at the forefront of developing and deploying all major Automotive OEM initiatives, starting with QOS for the Ford Motor Company in the early 90s. When Ford wanted to move QOS from a Cost of Quality-based measurable-driven process to a strategically-driven Customer-Focused process, Omnex assisted them in developing the QOS methodology and the QOS assessment tool for use by Ford and Ford Suppliers.

Subsequently, Omnex helped write QS-9000 and Omnex principals performed the first QS-9000 witness audit worldwide. Omnex collaborated with the Automotive Electronic Council in rewriting the Semiconductor Supplement to QS-9000 as an IATF 16949-based standard. Omnex developed and provided the Second Party Auditing Course for AIAG to Truck OEMs and Automotive Suppliers. Omnex principals are members of the AIAG writing committees of the SPC, FMEA and MSA Reference Manuals. Omnex is also an innovator of Lean and Six Sigma by integrating Lean into the Six Sigma methodology. Omnex is the provider of Lean and Six Sigma worldwide for the Automotive Industry as the AIAG Provider of Choice. Click here for more information on Lean and Six Sigma.

It is not hubris that we sometimes call ourselves Inventors of Automotive Quality. We have had a long association with many OEMs worldwide; from Hyundai in Chennai to DFM in China to Ford, GM, Mack, and Magna in the USA. For example, Visteon and Chrysler asked Omnex to conduct Operational Audits with Action Plans to improve their poorly performing suppliers. At the time, this was known as the 3PSD process by Chrysler. For Ford Motor Company, we have served the role of keeper of the Q1 Knowledge for Service Organizations, conducting training for Quality and Purchasing every few years. We are also proud of the role we have played with their global supply bases starting from Brazil, Venezuela, Argentina, Thailand, India, and Vietnam.

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 can help you conduct an IATF 16949 or ISO 26262 Discovery Analysis (or Assessment) or conduct a Best-In-Class assessment to assist your company in making process improvements that results 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, customer/Omnex team, and next steps are completed as a part of the Discovery. A discovery analysis or assessment can be done for process improvement, for new or revised standards, or when the customer is ready for an overhaul of their systems.

Omnex 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.
