This document discusses the problem statement of Common Operation and Management of Network Slicing (COMS). The purpose of this document is to identify the problem space of COMS and discuss the approach COMS is using to match the top-down network slice management concern with the underlay technologies. Furthermore, the role of a common information model is introduced and corresponding design principles are also discussed.
