How about a debate on QA then... perhaps not. (so here I go)... I was involved with writing QA for 9000, in fact every engineer and manager had to contribute. In a nutshell, you say what you do and then you consistently do what you have said . That's about it. In many ways it makes jobs so much easier having consistent process documents. Work can be handed over to colleagues with confidence and the whole review process is much simplified. Any engineer worth their salt, no matter how eccentric, would at one time have kept very detailed notes and would have been regarded as superfluous otherwise. QA in this context is just a way of retaining, disseminating and applying this knowledge.

Now if they would just put a silicon serial number AND an RS232 xcvr pair in the SAME IC, that would be great. Nearly all my designs get an RS-232 interface, even if it's just a PIC-based system. ISO9000, blecchh! No one ever produced a quality product only by following ISO9000 documented procedures. You've got to have the CORRECT procedures to begin with, and a good design. Some industrial equipment companies I know hang lots of ISO9000 paper on their lobby walls, but they would do more to improve their products if they would heed my advice about how they wire their machines. No, I'm not naming names.
