Industry Standards: ARP-1 (2009)

Special   Note to all organizations considering ECM or EDMS technologies:  The AIIM ARP-1 2009 EDMS Industry Best Practices have been updated and are now available!!

This recommended practice was originally published in 2001 and has been updated several times as the technologies matured and were updated.  

Due to the significant number of organizations and users who downloaded this document prompted the AIIM Standards Committee to begin a process of updating as required by the technologies.  The 2009 version incorporated many updates in the areas of procedures and improved methodologies that have been shown to greatly improve the overall EDMS project success ratio.  This updated guide presents a set of procedures and activities which should be considered when initiating any Electronic Document Management System (EDMS) project. Included in the guide is an outline of recommended activities to be completed throughout the phases of the EDMS project and the national and international standards that are available to provide beneficial guidance.  The committee chair, Robert Blatt (EID) has been the project leader for this effort which includes 22 voting members representing government, business, consulting, and users from around the United States.
