Project Structure and Governance

The OpenCDMS Project Management Committee (PMC) was established in September 2020. At this time all members of the original OpenCDMS community automatically joined the Project Advisory Team.

The Project Advisory Team (PAT) provides an interface to external communities. The Project Technical Team (PTT) takes requirements, works on the software design and oversees the implementation.

The Project Management Committee performs a mediation role, resolving any disputes that may arise and reporting progress to the OpenWIS Association

The high-level teams hold overall accountability for the success of the project and software, but much of the responsibility for specific outcomes is handled within sub-groups and working groups. This ensures that tasks and responsibilities are well-defined.
