Technology Integration Groups (TIGs)

TIGs now recruiting participants to develop the 2019 iNEMI Technical Plan

The iNEMI Technology Integration Groups (TIGs) lead the development of the iNEMI Technical Plan in specific technical areas, and support and drive the deployment agenda through collaborative projects. The TIGs continually support the iNEMI initiative and project process and report to the iNEMI Technical Committee.
 
The TIGs define iNEMI’s collaborative activities, identifying technology gaps that are best addressed through collaboration and then defining specific projects to address those gaps. TIG participation is open to all iNEMI member organizations and is an excellent way to help ensure that new projects focus on areas that are relevant to our members’ needs. There are currently five active TIGs reviewing technology gaps identified by the 2019 Roadmap and developing technical plans for each area. If you are interested in getting involved, please contact the staff coordinator listed below:
TIG responsibilities include:
  • Developing the iNEMI Technical Plan based on gap analysis of the current roadmap
  • Identifying iNEMI initiative opportunities in their respective areas
  • Prioritizing and recommending initiatives to form projects
  • Recommending and sourcing leadership to develop initiatives and project teams
  • Supporting and reviewing ongoing projects in their respective areas
  • Planning and helping organize workshops or other activities in their technology areas
  • Encouraging experts in their network be involved in iNEMI
 

2019 Technical Plan Development

The iNEMI Technical Plan, developed by the TIGs, provides a five-year plan that defines the projects and activities deemed necessary to close the identified gaps and challenges between present industry capabilities and future industry needs as forecast by the current iNEMI Roadmap. This plan is a members-only document and forms the basis for future iNEMI project selection.
 
The TIGs lead the technical plan development work by conducting a gap analysis of the roadmap within three months. The key gaps identified and potential solutions will provide input to the Technical Plan in the form of a short document (approximately 10 pages) by the end of July. These analyses will focus on proposed solution paths through collaborative projects that can be addressed by, and benefit, the iNEMI membership.
 

Get Involved

The TIG members are drawn from the pool of technical leadership within the iNEMI membership. All iNEMI members may get involved and participation will help member organizations in identifying future iNEMI projects that are of benefit to them. The presence of OEMs and ODMs on the TIG is key to ensuring that end user requirements are addressed. Occasionally, additional experts, who are non-members, are invited to participate when their expertise can assist the work of the TIG.
