Dear CMC members,

After the Summer saga on the creation of the PS WG and considering the 
closed CESG / CMC polls (see conditions below) and the still open poll to 
nominate PS WG Chairs, my interpretation of the situation is as follows

the creation of the WG has been approved. CESG conditions on the focus has 
been solved.
only the GB Project has been approved
the BB Project will be left as Draft Project, and once the GB is complete 
a CMC Project approval poll will be issued. This is in line with 
conditions from CNES and ESA
we do not have today WG Chairs. The current poll (closing on 12th oct) has 
conditions and some ADs did not cast the vote yet.

Ì would like to ask the CMC for a consolidated opinion on this situation.



CESG-P-2015-04-001 Creation the MOIMS Mission Planning and Scheduling WG
SEA AD  Shames Peter 
 APPROVE WITH CONDITIONS (state conditions that must be satisfied) I have 
two concerns about this WG, as stated in the charter and white paper: 

1) The focus in most of these materials seems to be on SM&C and how it can 
solve the problem, rather than on Mission Planning and a clear 
presentation of what they need.  This is both "cart before the horse" and 
looks like an overly tight binding that may be detrimental to the overall 
usability of the resulting standards. 

2) The WG leadership is exclusively Euro-centric.  Since there does appear 
to be a significant North American interest in this it would be sensible 
to broaden the coverage to recognize that. 4/23/2015 11:38 AM 
 CMC-P-2015-05-003 Creation the MOIMS Mission Planning and Scheduling WG

CNES  Soula Jean-Marc 
 ADOPT PROVISIONALLY (i.e., if stated condition is satisfied) CNES 
approves the creation of the WG and the GB project but, as the BB is 
planned in 2018-2019, it is not possible to commit on resources such a 
long time in advance. 
Therefore, CNES supports ESA proposal for a Go/NoGo decision after 
completion of the GB. 6/5/2015 12:17 PM 

ESA  Miro Juan 
 ADOPT PROVISIONALLY (i.e., if stated condition is satisfied) ESA confirms 
its support to the creation of MOIMS Mission Planning and Scheduling 
Working Group and will support with adequate resources the ESA role as WG 
chair and member 

ESA also authorizes the project for the production of the Mission Planning 
and Scheduling Green Book and will deploy 2 WM for its production (1 in 
2016 and 1 in 2017). 

ESA proposes a checkpoint at completion of the GB for the CMC to approve 
the project Mission Planning and Scheduling Blue Book and confirm the 
resources required for its production 6/5/2015 7:42 AM
