Process Modelling and Activity Coordination in an Academic School within a Higher Education Enterprise: an ISO 9001:2000 Certification Process

Daisy Seng, Leonid Churilov

Abstract

To gain a leading edge in today’s competitive environment, higher education enterprises are implementing and obtaining International Standard Organisation (ISO) 9001:2000 certification for their quality management system (QMS). In this paper, the use of ARIS (Architecture of Integrated Information Systems) methodology to assist in process understanding when implement- ing QMS is discussed. Introduction of the ISO certified QMS into the School of ABC, XYZ University – the first ever for an academic school in Australia, is used as a case study to illustrate both the notion of a process-oriented HEE and the elegance and power of ARIS.
