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 its seminars for those seeking ISO 9001:2000 certification.
Currently, Information Mapping provides Mapping ISO 9000 Documentation seminars throughout the corporate U.S. and in over 20 countries.Using this Guide
