In March of 1993, Team ISO of Information Mapping, Inc., published the first edition of Demystifying ISO 9000: Information Mapping's Guide to the ISO 9000 Standards. The book's aim was to help readers better understand the five basic ISO 9000 Standards. It was also meant to provide a proven path forward to certification to one of the three ISO 9000 Quality System Models (ISO 9001, 9002, or 9003).
The response to the guide has been overwhelmingly positive. Demystifying ISO 9000: Information Mapping's Guide to the ISO 9000 Standards became an instant best-seller and the reviews came in raving about the usability of the text. Over 100 organizations purchased multiple copies and distributed them to their ISO coordination teams.
The 1994 version
The 1994 version of Demystifying ISO 9000: Information Mapping's Guide to the ISO 9000 Standards was created to respond to customer demands and to parallel the revisions to the ISO 9000 Standards published on July 1, 1994.
In addition to covering the changes in the Standard in 1994, this guide was totally revised and now includes chapters on
planning,gap analysis,corrective action, document structure,document and records control, andcertification preparation.Information Mapping and ISO
The idea for using the principles of Information Mapping to document quality systems for conformance to the ISO 9000 Standards evolved from a series of seminars held by Information Mapping, Inc., for quality assurance personnel at Eastman Kodak Company starting in 1991. The foundation for these first quality documentation seminars was the Information Mapping course, Developing Procedures, Policies and Documentation, first developed by Robert Horn in 1977. Since 1991, Information Mapping, Inc., has worked to improve quality system documentation at a number of other organizations and to expand the quality system content of seminars for those seeking ISO 9000 certification.
