T3 - Open Systems

  Group Description  
Technical Committee T3 is responsible for the development of the National Standard Reference Model on Open Distributed Processing (ODP). The ODP will model the features and functions required to achieve a transparent distributed processing platform. This model will be used to coordinate future standards development in the area of distributed processing, much as the Reference Model of Open Systems Interconnection was used to coordinate communications standardization.

Technical Committee T3 is the U.S. TAG to JTC 1/SC 6/WG 1*, WG7, WG10 and SC7/WG19 and provides recommendations on U.S. positions to the JTC 1 TAG.


* The TAG for Project 5 in SC6/WG1 is the responsibility of IEEE.
