ok, let me know if this is better for a separate-brand new thread.
Ever since I've found out about Geometrica using a WIKI to implement a QMS and gain their ISO 9001 certification I've been keen on taking the same route. I've been reading Panchobook's posts with great interest. I'd also love to see this business case worked on by harishankarpv.
I know that Panchobook's organization has used ProjectForum, and Le Chiffre MediaWiki and I found this thread elsewhere Wiki recommendations for QMS project documentation
and I would basically like to repeat the thread here where I think there is more activity.
The poster on that forum, gregm, had created a list of features he thought were necessary for the project, being:
• Locally installed, not hosted
• Access controls
• Ability to edit documents and leave comments
• WYSIWYG editing, no code
• Good typographical tools
• Ability to export to either Word or PDF
• Change history (very important for audit trail)
• very good range of templates to help me built quickly (I'm not a coder)
Can we create our own list here, and are there more people than just Panchobook and Le Chiffre with their kind of experience?
Those who have used a wiki to post their favorite wiki features/most missed wiki features in the wiki software they chose?
Can we use this information to compile two lists,
Best features for optimal QMS implementation in compliance with ISO 9001
(login-ins/change history/roll backs/alerts of changes through email, ease of use for non-techies, great search feature etc-etc)
Using that to determine which wiki's are recommended
And an additional list with cool features that would be a bonus.
(For example I was wondering about a collaborative calendar that could be filtered... showed WHO made the edits, but allow for categories such as trade shows-travelling, company & dept meetings, various work schedules and vacation days of employees, bdays... allow for RSVPs.. much like outlook, but better.
Perhaps considered social networking features...)
Determining from the recommended wikis, which may be the most desirable individually?
I know there are websites out there that do Wiki comparisons, but I'd like to get info from those who have personal experience in relation to building a QMS.
and/or, any comments on Jira by atlassian for such a project if anyone is familiar with it?
one of Panchobook's links Our Intranet, the Wiki: A Case Study of a Wiki Changing an Enterprise.
They chose to use Confluence by atlassian...
Are there any more links such as the one's Panchobook has shared (including the Motorola
using Twiki one too) that are of other company stories?
Thanks for any help!
