Object Oriented process description for ISO 9001:2000



Good day,

I just ran across this forum today that I found very interesting. I hope I'll be able to keep up with the messages.

Now to the point. I'm a MBA student majoring in TQM. I'm thinking to write my thesis on a "universal" process model for use in ISO 9001 using object principles.
I hope that I'll be able to get some support from the "quality professional" to guide me through my work.

Best regards,

Al Dyer


I'm sure you can gain alot of knowledge from this forum. Maybe a few suggestions:

1: The FTP site is a good starting point with a gold mine full of information.

2: The search engine is top rate and will be helpful.

3: Be as detailed as possible when posting messages.

4: Have fun with the process!

Fully vaccinated are you?
Are you referring to the process model in the new ISO 9K standard?


To be more precise I want to try and develop a process description system/method using the principles of Object Design(e.g. UML). This system/method should allow the "user" following it to create a process model that will satisfy the new ISO 9K:2001 requirements for processes.
For instance, in this method, there should be a "process map". Or each process should be linked to another one, a "link map". Or each process should have properties such as "Input", "Output", "Resources", etc. One could also imagine a sort of "use case" diagram for ISO, but also other, requirements.
Is it a bit clearer ? What do you think about it ?

I will be using the existing - but static - models used in the ISO 9K:2001.
