12 Buy-in The SESAR Consortium gathers a wide range of expertise
Still, a wider consultation is crucial: The Air Transport Community at large Pro-active Communication strategy to involve external organisations and integrate their comments/positions within the six main deliverables of the Project SESAR Forum organisation Feed-back process on Deliverables

13 AGCFG - SESAR cooperation
AGCFG can assist the SESAR project in particular to understand the Future Communication Study assessment, results and recommendations In contributing to create common SESAR/AGTF positions SESAR can assist AGCFG in particular by enlarging the dissemination of FCS work providing stakeholder feedback to AGTF endorsing through this feedback common reference positions AGCFG/SESAR cooperation is key to both projects Through this we could achieve : Consensus on key technologies Harmonised selection of aviation related technology, with no unjustified proliferation of multiple technologies addressing the same needs. Global interoperability

14 Where can AGCFG assist? AGCFG experts support is needed on communications strategy : To disseminate,and to explain the initial communications strategy This is particularly scope of D1 phase of SESAR (Mar - June 06) To create full understanding & rationale between AGCFG & SESAR stakeholders on choices, methodology, candidate technologies, issues etc. related to the future communications strategy This is particularly the scope of D3/D4 phase of SESAR (Sep 06 - Oct 07); Openly respond to SESAR stakeholders questions

15 Interoperability : a Key Objective
Interoperability of systems, Constituents and Procedures : one of the four packages from the SES legislation Standardisation : - a key aspect for interoperability In the Definition Phase : Dedicated Work Packages US Industry partners Buy-in – They are involved : JURG, RTCA, EUROCAE, ETSI, CANSO, FAA / ICAO through EUROCONTROL US Industry involved in : developing a macroeconimc analysis of the role of ATM in supporting the European Economy, long term ATM requirements and standardisation the ATM architecture in copnceptual form deployment concepts and a roadmap the ATM marster Plan itslef the organisation and definition of the work programme to achieve a SES

16 Work package 2.5 Working package 2.5 Technology Assessment
The overall goals of this WP are: Identification and characterisation of candidate technologies (available and new / innovative ones) in order to support the concept of operation and the architecture options for mid & long-term objectives Identification of risks and blocking points concerning the introduction of the candidate technologies (e.g. open technical issues or technology availability) Development of a strategy how to resolve the identified risks and blocking points A consensus is needed on a technology roadmap. The roadmap must: operationally support future ATS be applicable worldwide and institutionally accepted include supporting R&D themes

Information & Consultation Mechanisms Single European Sky Committee Stakeholder Consultation Group European Commission EUROCONTROL Industry Consultation Body EC/EUROCONTROL Steering Board Contractual Relationship European Commission Consortium EUROCONTROL Agency Consortium

22 Project Directorate organisation
Project Assistant Quality & Risk Manager Contract & Finance Manager PMO Performance Manager Communication Managers Configuration & Data Manager Project Directorate Ensures the Project control, time and cost management, Handles a master project plan, integrating the dashboards associated to the processes under monitoring (progress, risks, quality,…). Reports to the Executive Committee, and to the Purchaser and the European Commission within the mandate attributed to it by the Executive Committee. Milestone Manager WP Coordinators

23 Management of Multi-disciplinary Activities (SOW)
R level Overall operational responsibility at WP level (baseline: SOW), including Specification of individual Tasks Content coordination within Work Packages Overall Work Package consistency Endorsement and integration Challenge: Overcome traditional barriers between stakeholder groups, nations, etc. Solution: Create a “customer-contractor” type of relationship through three levels of responsibility R (“Requirement”) level O (“Operational”) level W (“Work”) level O level Responsibility on Task level (according to requirements defined by R level), inclduding: Technical content Output of deliverables. W level Contribution work within a given Task under the control of O level may be performed by multiple Participants.

24 Linking content and process
SESAR Definition Phase can only be successful in a collaborative effort. Collaboration without guidance (better: “organisation”) is risky. ATM comprises many disciplines. For each of these disciplines there are specialised entities. None of these entities has enough knowledge of the other disciplines to take leadership over them. Such a claim would not be acceptable for the other entities. No entity is willing, nor able, to be main contractor Cost/Schedule problems Efficiency losses Unsatisfactory quality of project results Frustration of stakeholders and loss of buy-in Project may lose track! In addition, the Purchaser and the general public need a well-defined interface to the project Separation of “Content” and “Process” Content: R/O/W Process and Interface: Project Directorate Reconciliation of “Content” and “Process”: Content Integration Team (CIT)

25 Definition Phase: a new Approach
Shared objectives Shared Expertise: ~ 50 participating companies / associations / … contributing to the Buy-in of results by the Air Transport Community at large Shared Governance: The ExCom The Content Integration Team The Project Directorate Shared Processes: … working together in a coherent way

26 What after the Definition Phase ?
The ATM Master Plan : foundation for the Implementation phase Development Phase: necessary development /validation work to be conducted, accompanying regulatory measures Implementation Phase: deployment of the developed Master Plan in the European ATM. SESAR Joint Undertaking being currently proposed by the EC: to manage the Development Phase to rationalise European technological development efforts

27 Management of Content Integration via Content Integration Team
Ensure consistency of results while: WBS contains 20 WPs and 64 Tasks. 40 to 50 organisations are working on R, O, and/or W level. Timescale is tight (24 months) and many WPs and tasks run in parallel. Establishment of a “Content Integration Team”: Composed of Experts bringing expertise of the Basic Consortia. Users (1) ANSP (2) Industry (2) EUROCONTROL (tbd) Definition of, and agreement on, Milestone Objective Plan with R levels (with O support). Integrating output of Tasks and WPs into Milestone Deliverables.

28 Main functions of the Project Directorate
Day-to-day management of the Project Interface to EUROCONTROL and Project Associates in contractual matters Point of contact for external parties Practical / logistics organisation of events Ensure that the Project is carried out efficiently Cost/Schedule planning and controlling Control of adequate resource allocation Quality Management, Risk Management, etc. Manage E-Room and other common tools Facilitate work of R/O/W to produce satisfactory results Work-Package Co-ordinators, Milestone Co-ordinators, Performance Manager Detect potential problems Act as a moderator / facilitator amongst stakeholders

29 Executive Committee The Executive committee is in charge of the overall direction and major decisions with a strategic and high level operational role. It gives appropriate mandate to the project directorate for the daily project operations. It supervises the work of the Content Integration Team. It decides upon use of the Project reserve. It is composed of : 4 Users representatives including the Chairman, 3 ANSPs representatives, 2 Airports, 1 Industry, 1 Military observer. All decisions should be based on consensus, where required voting mechanism applies with at least 75% for decision.
