Geometrica Builds ISO 9001 QMS on Wiki

Case Study

- May 2012

Abstract: Geometrica, a manufacturer of domes and free-style structures, used a wiki to document its ISO 9001:2008 quality management system. The company attributes its fast track to certification — nine months from beginning to certification — to the ease and efficiency of wikis. While the original goal was meeting ISO 9001:2008 requirements, the wiki now functions as documentation of its integrated management system, including information sharing with external stakeholders, project and customer service management, and its certification to OHSAS 18001:2007. In its first nine months, the team amassed 1,577 pages of documentation, containing more than three-gigabytes of data. Three years later, there are more than 10,000 pages servicing 67 internal users.
