doc.: IEEE /432 Submission July 2000 Matthew B. Shoemake, TGg Chairperson IEEE TGg Chairs Status Update Matthew B. Shoemake IEEE Task Group G Chairperson
doc.: IEEE /432 Submission July 2000 Matthew B. Shoemake, TGg Chairperson WG and TGg Growth Voter turnout has increased dramatically since March 2000 when work on extension of b was first discussed. Due to this, more detail is provided herein to explain the history and roll of the Task Group. Due to large number of attendees, meetings need more formality to remain efficient
doc.: IEEE /432 Submission July 2000 Matthew B. Shoemake, TGg Chairperson Objective of a Study Group From the LMSC Operating Rules: –The Study Group shall have a defined task with specific output and a specific time frame established within which they are allowed to study the subject. It is expected that the work effort to develop a PAR will originate in a ECSG or WGSG. A Study Group shall report its recommendations, shall have a limited lifetime, and is chartered meeting-to- meeting. After the Study Group recommendation(s) has been accepted by the parent body, the Study Group will be disbanded no later than the end of the next Plenary Session.
doc.: IEEE /432 Submission July 2000 Matthew B. Shoemake, TGg Chairperson Objective of an 802 Task Group From Overview and Guide to 802 LMSC –Each project approved within an existing group is assigned a letter, for example 802.1D for MAC Bridges in the High Level Interface WG. A Study Group (SG) is formed when a new area is first investigated for standardization. The SG can be within an existing WG or TAG, or it can be independent of the WGs. A new project in an existing group is developed by a Task Force [Group], while a new independent project creates a new WG.
doc.: IEEE /432 Submission July 2000 Matthew B. Shoemake, TGg Chairperson Objectives of an 802 Task Group (2) From WG Operating Rules –The function of the Task Group is to produce a draft standard, recommended practice, guideline, supplement, or portion of a draft standard to the WG. These shall be within the scope of the P802 LMSC, the charter of the WG and under an approved PAR as established by the P802 LMSC EC and approved by the IEEE Standards Board. After the publication by the IEEE of the standard, recommended practice or guideline, the function of the TG is complete and its charter expires (see section 3.5).
