openSE 2.0 Editorial Community

openSE 2.0 takes the original openSE framework to the next level to better address the specific project management needs of CERN people. Since the creation of the framework, openSE has been adopted by several departments at CERN. It has been used for managing different projects, and has also become the standard project management training of CERN. Taking openSE to 2.0, the aim is to complement the framework with elements (processes, document templates) while remaining a lean approach.

The original openSE framework was the fruit of a collaborative approach of several research institutes, and so shall version 2.0 be as well. The expertise of the Project Management Community members (participants behind this link) is taken into account in dedicated task forces, which prepare the ground by making proposals to be presented in openSE 2.0 Forum on 11th of October.  The task force topics deal with the following areas of openSE:

  • Project Roadmapping
  • Lifecycle & Key Deliverables
  • Requirement Engineering
  • Planning & Scheduling
  • Cost Estimating and Process Monitoring
  • Agility-Inclusion

The openSE 2.0 Forum is open for anyone interested in the topic. More information and sign up is done through this link.


openSE 1.0 Editorial Community

Since openSE is an outcome of the PURESAFE Initial Training Network FP7 Marie Curie Actions project that is supported by the European Commission, most of the contributors come from the eight partners of this project, namely the two case providers: CERN in Switzerland and GSI/FAIR in Germany; the three academic partners: KIT in Karlsruhe, Germany, TUT in Tampere, Finland and UPM in Madrid, Spain; and the three industrial partners: bgator in Tampere, Finland, SenseTrix in Helsinki, Finland and Oxford Technology Ltd. in Abingdon, U.K.

openSE raised interest outside the core PURESAFE project community. Participants from ESS in Lund, Sweden, from Université de Savoie, Annecy, France and from Arts & Métiers ParisTech, Paris, France take also part to this editorial initiative, as well as a few master students from Université de Lausanne, Switzerland, from the Norwegian University of Science and Technology in Trondheim, Norway and from Conservatoire National des Arts & Métiers, Paris, France.

The openSE editorial project relied on the following participants.
