Unity Clothing

CMTC began the project with Unity Clothing in August, 2018 to discuss the identification of growth opportunities through the development of a strategic business and manufacturing roadmap.

The key deliverable was a strategic business roadmap. Some of the questions that needed to be answered were:

  1. Who are Unity Clothing’s customers?
  2. What do Unity Clothing’s customers need?
  3. What is Unity Clothing’s current state and how best can it predict the future business ecosystem?
  4. Does Unity Clothing have the right ...

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 ...
