What is ISO 9000?
Many people don’t know even if they have encountered it sometimes.
Every organisation, company, and even individual people are free to implement ISO 9000 for their activities. Most of it is only natural way of doing things professional- compare to amateur or “hacker” approach!
Amateurs and so called hackers mostly only work for themselves, but these days with ever increasing online presence, they also can become an inspiration for others. Sometimes it could be said their approach is in contrast to ISO9000- for instance NOT seeking to improve and seeking to documentate and make information available in a professional way and NOT following a goal for a longtime period and keeping things ontrack.
Sometimes these people don’t have to because they don’t have customers and don’t have to be successfully on a market.
But even for prototype circuits no matter how badly constructed, you could collect the results systematically, and try to make a better prototype next time with lower cost, less effort and in a shorter time + documentate it in a way that is useful for others.
Using wordpress to standardize the way information is presented by having the same layout for all pages + keywords + categories, is pretty much compareable to principles found in the ISO 9000 standard.

ISO 9001:2008 sets out the criteria for a quality management system and is the only stan
dard in the family that can be certified to (although this is not a requirement). It can be used by any organization, large or small, regardless of its field of activity. In fact ISO 9001:2008 is implemented by over one million companies and organizations in over 170 countries.
Quality Management Principles
The standard is based on a number of quality management principles including a strong customer focus, the motivation and implication of top management, the process approach and continual improvement. These principles are explained in more detail in the pdf Quality Management Principles. Using ISO 9001:2008 helps ensure that customers get consistent, good quality products and services, which in turn brings many business benefits.
