NGN Project Management Tool
12 July 2006
This is an introduction to the ITU-T NGN Project Management Tool available at
The NGN Project Management Tool concept was agreed in ITU-T Study Group 13 (SG 13), Q.1/13
“Project coordination and release planning for NGN” in December 2004 for the purpose of showing
the present status of numerous standardization work items on-line which are relevant to the ITU-T
NGN project and have been developed or are being progressed in ITU and also external Standards
Development Organizations (SDOs) and other fora and consortia.
The NGN Project Management Tool is led by SG 13, the ITU-T Lead Study Group on Next
Generation Networks (NGN), and is maintained under the banner of the NGN-GSI (Next
Generation Networks – Global Standards Initiative). The responsibility for the decision on what to
include in the NGN Project Management database resides with Q.1/13 “Project coordination and
release planning for NGN”.
The NGN Project Management Tool mirrors the NGN Roadmap document, which is under
development by Q.1/13, and allows an easy reference to the ongoing NGN work in all ITU-T Study
Groups, SDOs, fora and consortia with pointers to actual documents.
Organizational and functional views
The database exists in two views: organizational (Figure 1) and functional (Figure 2).
