Basic function of the area

The Standards web shows an overview of the standards available in the system. The standards are stored in the system once by Modell Aachen and are not updated afterwards. If a standard changes, it can be entered into the system by the customer. More about this in the further course of this article.


After installation, the ISO 9001:2015 standard is activated and listed in the first table. In the second table, which is reserved for key users, all other standards are listed which can be activated if required.


Interaction with process area

For each activated standard, a metadata is displayed in the process area. This metadata can be used to assign one or more standards chapters to each page. 

If the page has passed the release process, the page title appears in the standard, and in it, assigned to the corresponding standard chapter.
