ISO 9001 is a ‘must have’ certification in the industry, especially in the software industry. The ISO 9001:2000 standard is a generic standard applicable to all types of industries. It is written in a semi-legal language. While this provides the precision required in an auditable standard, it makes understanding and implementing the standard very difficult.

This book:

  • Provides guidance for interpreting the ISO 9001:2000 standard for software organizations
  • Provides insights into the intent and spirit of the ISO 9001:2000 standard as relevant to software organizations
  • Act as a reference material for persons implementing the ISO 9001:2000 standard in software organizations

This book will be useful to persons who are responsible for effectively implementing ISO 9001:2000 for software organizations. This includes quality managers, members of the Software Engineering Process Group (SEPG), software engineers and ISO consultants and trainers.
