Let Me Help You Re: Iso 90003

Hi, Sorry I might have missed something, Could to elaborate on the above? ( spell it out for a newbie like myself )

J
Jason:

Let me see if I can help. ISO 9001 is a set of requirements that an organization chooses to comply with, for certain reasons:

a) Customers are seeking assurance of a system to support the quality of products they buy, and/or
b) Organizations want to get 'certified' etc. and/or
c) Certain markets and product regulations are best met by implementing a quality system which meets ISO 9001

etc.

As written, ISO 9001 is a 'one-size-fits-all' document and there's no interpretation of the requirements for industry sectors. That's where guidance documents, like ISO 90003 come in.

They are used to help organizations in specific sectors - software, in the case of ISO 90003 - design and implement a systematic approach to managing their business processes. It guides you through the requirements. One example which would need such guidance would be section 8.3 of ISO 9001 'Control of non-conforming product'. This requirement needs specific interpretive guidance for software businesses, who don't 'manufacture' software - in the conventional sense of the word. So, how would you control the source code in the event of some software testing failure, which is what ISO 9001 asks you. ISO 90003 gives that guidance.

I hope this helps. Let us know if there's anything else you need to know.
Thanks to AndyN for your informative Post and/or Attachment!

Re: ISO 90003 - Guidelines for the application of ISO 9001:2000 to computer software

Back in the 90's, a certification scheme was devised in the UK for organizations dealing with software development. The scheme was designated as the TickIT Scheme. For more information, visit http://www.tickit.org/.

That's a good point, Sidney. I believe the thing has lost some steam, especially since the ISO 9001 (et al) requirements are now less manufacturing biased, which was the principle reason for the scheme - the interpretation of the requirement in terms of software processes/products (that, and the lack of qualified auditors).

4. Is there any other ISO standards that relate to a specific product?
Yup - in fact, about a trillion of them (OK, that's a slight exaggeration) but the vast majority of standards are related to products. So there's standards for electric cable, and electric plugs, telephones, fire safety systems, shipping containers... etc etc...

But unless there is already a Standard that covers your specific product, you won't be able to get the product itself certified. What gets certified is the management system that you use to produce your product (or service). The processes, documents, records, etc etc rather than the actual product itself.

To find out, just go here (for example) and look at the catalogue, & start wading through all the many, many, many Standards that exist.

Re. TickIt, I rarely hear much about it these days. Possibly more in the UK?

Re: ISO 90003 - Guidelines for the application of ISO 9001 to computer software

Hello can anyone help me create a manual using iso 90003 guidelines. Or if there is a sample QMS manual that incorporates the ISO 90003 guidelines?

The Tickit scheme is now defunct as well - as of Nov 2014 and has been replaced by the new TickitPLUS, which is a far better reinterpretation and closer to CMMI and aiming to merge in to the risk based approach that the ISO series are starting to implement.

It not only includes 9001 but has started to include 27001 and others as well
