Michael,

It seems to me that the spirit and intent of ISO 9000 is not to "make" anybody do anything. Rather, I interpret the intent to be to provide a framework which can benefit any organization doing anything. If your software design/development is not currently covered there is no need to cover it, but in your case I would make sure that when you say you are certified, that you qualify the scope of the certification to potential and real customers.

My company actually created a separate company, which we will be treating as a subcontractor, which does all the PC-oriented R&D for the products we offer. Our Quality Manual is explicit about the relationship and scope. We will, of course, have to provide procedures for approving them as a subcontractor and validating and verifying their work. I can't see that requirement changing under the 2000 revisions.

We currently envision some sort of slower or less comprehensive parallel-track quality effort for the R&D aimed at prepping them for a full-blown quality effort later on.
