The DATEX II Organisation
The project organisation of DATEX II is structured in three layers:
- Change Management Board (CMB)
- Technical Bord (TB)
- Task groups
Besides these main layers there is a Standardisation Advisory Group (STAG) to connect to the environment in which DATEX II operates.
The Change Management Board (CMB), led by an CMB Chair and an CMB Deputy, has the final responsibility for all decisions regarding the work programme of DATEX II in general. The work that is undertaken within the scope of the NAPCORE project is to be approved in the NAPCORE governance structure. All active public members (those that committed resources to work on DTAEX II either via funding in NAPCORE, either on own resourcing) are members of the CMB, as well as the TB. The CMB Chair and CMB Deputy manage the day-to-day strategic and tactical activities and represent the project via external contacts. The CMB is advised by the TB on technical matters. All deliverables and other formal documents need approval of the CMB (and the NAPCORE Steering Committee if defined so).
The members of the Technical Board (TB) are the activity leaders. The TB is open to others to participate in the (mainly technical) meetings. The TB Chair and the TB Deputy deal with the day-to-day activities and represent the project on technical matters. The TB reports to the CMB. The TB coordinates the activities (where needed) and monitors progress and the quality of the deliverables.
Member of the Task groups, led by the Task leaders, are the experts from the different Member States and other organisations that actively participate in the work items of the Tasks. The Task leaders are responsible for the work and the deliverables in their task; for the reporting to the TB and for the coordination with other work items (where needed) in the TB or direct with other tasks and work items.
The Standardisation Advisory Group (STAG) is a sub-group of the NAPCORE Advisory Board that advises (asked or not) on NAPCORE standardisation developments in general. The STAG consists of any public or private organisation that wants to be linked to the project and has a direct interest in the development of the standards.
The governance of the DATEX II organisation is controlled by the ”Rules of Procedure of the DATEX II organisation”. These rules apply to all partners in the DATEX II organisation. The DATEX II organisation is open to all stakeholders in the traffic and travel domain that want to participate in the development, maintenance and user support of DATEX II.
DATEX II organises on a regular basis a DATEX II User Forum, where the DATEX II community comes together to share knowledge and experiences. Here we inform our stakeholders on the DATEX II developments on a: strategic, tactical and technical level.
