IMHO if your product or service is software or you design software that becomes part of the product or service, then writing code falls under that clause.

Yes, they do.

I didn't mean to say that ISO 9001 and/or CMM wouldn't be useful. All companies I have studied and worked with have seen at least some positive benefits of ISO 9001/2; automotive and other hardware manufacturing companies nearly only positive (except the costs and paperwork). What I wanted to say is DON'T believe that a QM system is a GUARANTEE of no more problems with quality (i.e. nothing more needs to be done). What it is is a system that makes it easier to systematically find and solve most the surfacing new problems.

ISO and CMM, to my opinion, basically work as well in both software and hardware. It's just that CMM is already translated to software language; with ISO, somebody in Your organization must do it. The new ISO is even closer to CMM (levels 2 to 4) than before. For levels 4 and above, CMM compares quite well with schemes such as EFQM and Baldrige.

My 2 cents (1.6 Euro Cents),
