The Evolution of Documentation and Management Systems

by Chad Kymal published on January 31, 2023

Documentation and documented information requirements are evolving, as all things do, especially during periods of major technological innovation like the one we are in now. The ISO 10013 Guidance for Documented Information specifically addresses the documentation needs of a quality management system (QMS), but today’s documentation needs are evolving beyond the QMS to documentation requirements for Software ( ASPICE for Automotive Software, ISO 62304 in Medical Devices and AS 9115 Aerospace Software), ISO 27001 Information Security Management Systems and Product Cybersecurity Standards.) Chad Kymal was the US expert for ISO 10013 Guidance for Documented Information.

In this 60-minute Webinar, the speaker will cover best practices for documentation structures, process maps, processes, and work instructions using Omnex’s Document Management Systems software – Doc Pro. How should you architect your global sites and design centers. How to standardize and integrate various management systems. How to link the Process Map to documents. How to use process flow charts for processes. A Q&A session will follow the technical presentation.
