TickIT vs.ISO 9000-3 vs. ISO 9001 vs. CMM/SEI guidelines @ Level 3

Does anyone have any information on ISO 9000-3 and TickIT and the impact on this with the pending release of ISO 9000:2000? Will ISO 9000-3 be updated? My company, currently operating under the CMM/SEI guidelines @ Level 3, is evaluating TickIT registration due to some customer inputs. Our concern is we could get registered this year and have an obsolete certificate by December if ISO 9000-3 is not updated. Any information would be appreciated.

I thought I read somewhere that ISO 9000-3 was being phased out. If I remember where I saw that I'll get back with you.

Whilst we are on the subject, i recently turned a job down because it involved building a companies processes around this standard, and i know nothing about it.

Does anyone want to have a go at outlining this standard?. Is it wildly different from 9001/2? What is the key content.? Is it unheard of for Software companies to register to the normal ISO 9001/2

Regards

A new version of the TickIT Guide is being prepared at the moment for release at the end of the year. The new Guide addresses the requirements of 9000:2000, and also takes into account ISO 12207 - Software life cycle processes.

Hope this helps.

A link that may explain how ISO 9000-3 (guidance on implementing ISO 9001 for software), rather than ISO 9003 (Final Inspection and Testing) is given below: ***DEAD LINK REMOVED***
Good Luck

A point that sometimes causes confusion is that, if you are developing a quality system for registration to ISO 9001 and TickIT, the assessors will audit your system against the 20 clauses of ISO 9001 - not against the TickIT Guide or ISO 9000-3.

They will use the Auditor Guidance section of the Guide for interpretation, but your assessment report, non-conformances etc will all be referenced to ISO 9001 (or 9002/9003 if reduced scope).

Until a year ago software producing companies in the UK could only obtain combined ISO 9000/TickIT certification, but this requirement has now been changed, and you can now be registered to ISO 9001 alone.

However, since 9000:2000 incorporates a lot of the process-oriented requirements that are missing from 9000:1994, so the new standard should relate better to IT than the old one did, and companies may choose ISO 9001 rather than ISO 9001/TickIT.
