The following list shows the various types of groups within the CIM Users Group.


Focus Communities:  This type of group is dedicated to applying CIM where the standard has not been fully extended. This type of site may not be secured, to invite public participation.


Projects: These groups are projects that are jointly funded by participating utilities or vendor companies. This type of site is typically limited to funding members.


Working Groups:  There are several working groups focused on issues of common interest to CIM Users. Areas include the development of tools, structuring extensions for model exchange and application integration, model validation, compliance testing, and interoperability testing.  You can view a list of existing working groups by clicking on the Working Groups menu item on the top navigation menu above.
