The Open Group Standards Process

Objective of Meeting

This session provided an overview of The Open Group Standards Process.


The Open Group Standards Process defines the procedures for key tasks within The Open Group Standards development activities.

The objectives of having documented and observed procedures are:

  • To explain how The Open Group Standards Process operates

  • To record how complex tasks involving different groups may be executed in an effective and repeatable manner
  • To ensure the quality of Open Group Standards deliverables
  • To ensure that The Open Group complies with legal constraints on the operation of consortia

This session provided an update on the Standards Process. It described the principles upon which the process is founded, the definition of an Open Group Standard, and a look at the Core Processes that take a document through the different stages of development from being an idea for a standard to being an approved published standard.
