I am writing now the diploma work, which will be devoted to quality system development and implementation under ISO 9000:2000. Please, tell me, what should include the plan of quality system development and implementation and which sequence of activities should an organization follow ? Unfortunately, I have no books in ones I could get answers to my questions. This Forum is more concrete and have been helping many. Thank you in advance for help.

Development of a quality system is a big bite to explain from scratch. The easiest thing to do is get a copy of ISO 9001:2000 and follow the directions. It gives you the minimum requirements. As far as the sequence, you might want to review the Implementation examples at Actually it takes more than this, however. Have you inspection instructions, for example? If so, where did they come from? Bottom line is for every company implementation of a quality system from scratch depends upon the product and processes. there is no 'one size fits all'.

Though not explicitely ISO:

Think about the typical document structure, I - IV. Most companies start at level I (policy) and work their way down to level IV.

Think again:

Start with level III and IV (forms, instructions, tags, evidence etc...) and work your way back up to the level I document.

My reasoning:

Everybody uses level III and IV documents but in reality the use of level I (policy) and II (procedure) documents is minimal to the general workforce. These seem to be of more use to the management representstive and the auditor.

Kind of like reverse engineering.

Just a line of thought to address during your diploma work.
