Process and methodologies

Hello again! First of all I would like to thank avery reply I got, they have been invredible helpfull. I've been reading quite a few articles about the process aproach and have a question.

I'm working in a small company 15 employees) that developes software and also manages software projects. We have a methodology regarding how to develop systems and how to manage software projects. I was wondering wether when complying with 4.1 you could just refer to this methology.

Best regards
Martin

Why not? Remember in order to meet the requirements of 4.1 you need to do everything else (with exclusions if allowed). What you are describing is part of Product Realization which falls in the Caluse 7 area.

Yes, this sounds like you are describing how you meet the requirements of 7.3.1 (and the rest of 7.3). In my opinion the requirements of 4.1 are mostly all met through other requirements covered in the rest of the standard anyway...
