 OAGi Working Groups    

Welcome to the OAGi Working Groups page. The best way to engage with OAGi is to participate and/or lead a Working Group.

If you are interested in joining any of these Working Groups, or in starting a new Working Group, please write to us here

OAGi has a specific, repeatable development process that all of these Working Groups follow. It contains four phases: 

1.     Project Definition
Review and Approval
4.     Publication 

You can learn more about or development methodology here. 

Participation on Working Groups is a privilege of membership. If you are not already an OAGi member, you can learn more by clicking here.

Working Groups

Quality Content Working Group (new)

The scope of this new Working Group includes 6 Nouns and a Component library donated by Pat O'Connor of Infor, a longtime Policy Board member.

The donated Nouns and Components the Working Group starts with include:

Corrective Action Plan

Defective Material Notice

Inspection Order

Quality Specification

The Working Group plans to review this donated content and revise and/or add to as deemed necessary.  Also, an inventory of existing quality content in OAGIS is also planned, with additions and revisions as deemed necessary.


The Policy Board has reviewed and approved this Working Group and we have members who have already signed on.
