There's a book called "The ISO 9000 Documentation Toolkit" which you
might want to look at. It has a disk that works with WordPerfect for
DOS, Word for Windows and Word for Mac. The disk contains procedures
that were derived from the worksheets. The worksheets guide you through
the ISO 9000 requirements and provide strategies for implementation. You
complete and edit the text in the software to match your organization's
implementation. The ISBN is 0-13-124587-2. It's available at bookstores
and from Prentice Hall.
