We optimize organizational and process performance through a unique SQDCME & 12-Tools Model to create a single, concentric ("to have a common center") management system structure.

SQDCME:  Excellence in safety, quality, delivery, cost, morale and environment. Improving one aspect without studying the effect on the others can lead to undesired results. We take a systematic approach to improvement by focusing on the simplest path towards organizational excellence. 

12-Tools:  We design the management system architecture (tools and templates) to strengthen the core of your business. The 12-tools and their use are studied, configured, maintained and improved by each process owners as a means of mastering the processes that he/she manages.

Integrity and results are the most important elements of our service to you. We begin each project by matching your needs with the best subject matter experts (SMEs) available because your requirements will be different from any other project we work on. That is why we service the following major industries:


The automotive industry has never been more competitive than it is today. Global competition and increasing customer demands continue to drive quality requirements within the automotive supply chain.


The aerospace industry requires some of the toughest quality standards in the world. Supplying products and services in this industry requires an extreme dedication to design, error proofing methods, configuration management, risk reduction and various international certifications.


Opportunities to reduce redundancies, minimize travel time, improve communication amongst providers and provide the best results for the patient are at abundant levels. Both legislative changes for healthcare reform (i.e. pay for performance), as well as competition amongst providers, will continue to drive the need for lean quality practices in healthcare.

Information Technology

Systematically assess your information security risks, taking account of the threats, vulnerabilities, and impacts in order to prevent unintended use of your information. We can subsequently design and assist your organization in the implementation of a comprehensive suite of information security controls or other forms of risk treatment (such as risk avoidance or risk transfer) to address those risks that are deemed unacceptable.


Much of the automotive and aerospace industry quality standards stem from government and military standards. With the evolution of government contracting, outsourcing (“privatization”) to the public sector, so grows the opportunity to provide goods and services to the various branches of the US Government. We work with both prime and sub-level suppliers in developing their organizations to provide goods and/or services to government agencies.


Our SMEs are competent in their respective fields, providing technical expertise for supporting litigation or minimizing potential risks.
