Ecliptic Enterprises (Cybersecurity)

CMTC met with Ecliptic’s senior staff with a plan to progress towards implementation and compliance with DFARS 252.204-7012. CMTC provided expertise and guidance to develop cybersecurity plans training, documentation, policies and procedures to Ecliptic. The desired outcome was that Ecliptic would remain and grow as a qualified supplier in the defense, commercial and civil space supply chain.

Initially, a baseline analysis consisting of an on-site assessment of the information system ecosystem was performed to determine the current level of DFARS compliance. CMTC then provided guidance to Ecliptic on a set of four deliverables: 1) initiate the fulfillment of the Self-Attestation Questions via the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s Cyber Security Evaluation Tool to help a compliance reviewer’s work with ...

KAP Manufacturing

In August 2017, KAP Manufacturing connected with CMTC. After a kick-off meeting and system evaluation, consultants worked with the organization to develop an implementation plan to become AS9100 revision D certified by November 2017. CMTC assisted KAP Manufacturing in identifying and implementing the required operational improvements. This required editing and augmenting the internal management system and documentation with the necessary procedures and processes. CMTC provided the organization with templates and training guidelines to help management more efficiently implement the changes associated with the new AS9100 Rev. D standard.

To address any concerns about the timing of the project, CMTC worked closely with the staff on an intensely scheduled project. Staff members were trained on the changes to the ...

Ecliptic Enterprises (TDMI)

CMTC met with Ecliptic’s senior staff with a plan to identify and clarify the organization’s sales and marketing strategies. A Technology Driven Market Intelligence (TDMI) engagement was proposed as the methodology to be used to assist in clarifying business priorities and to outline a strategy and action plan to be executed.

The project focused on completing a needs analysis, performing primary/secondary market research, and conducting a strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats (SWOT) analysis. Through a structured process of research and interviews, the TDMI engagement helped Ecliptic identify and characterize the markets, trends, value chains, competition and companies of most interest and relevance to Ecliptic; detail prevailing technical performance and user requirements and assessing how well ...

Warren Packaging

Warren Packaging connected with CMTC and, after analyzing the situation, a CMTC consultant designed a Lean Manufacturing transformation project to address the company’s issues and position Warren Packaging for growth. Four subject areas were addressed: leadership and culture; information flow; material flow; and process efficiency. CMTC began by helping Warren Packaging determine its essential corporate values, and define what they wanted to be and how to get there. To improve information flow, CMTC engaged the company in process mapping and a “current state” map was created which included input on issues and suggested improvements from a cross-functional team of employees. A new “future state” map was then created which provided a framework and guide to improve communication accuracy and improve ease of use, ...

Peerless Injection Molding LLC dba ProPlas Technologies

ProPlas Technologies contacted CMTC in April 2015 regarding improving its Lean capabilities.

After the challenges were diagnosed and a foundation for continuous improvement was set, employees were trained on the fundamentals of Lean methodologies. Experts worked with ProPlas to establish more standardized processes on the production floor and focus on implementing process improvements. 5S training laid the groundwork for the improvement initiatives while coaching employees on how to prioritize safety practices and maintain those practices.

The training also focused on fostering communication between employees. Root cause analysis training helped leadership identify the main cause of problems and empowered leaders to work together and resolve conflicts. Formal communication meetings were also ...
