Detector Construction Management and Quality Control: Establishing and Using a CRISTAL System

Abstract : The CRISTAL (Cooperating Repositories and an Information System for Tracking Assembly Lifecycles) project is delivering a software system to facilitate the management of the engineering data collected at each stage of production of CMS. CRISTAL captures all the physical characteristics of CMS components as each sub-detector is tested and assembled. These data are retained for later use in areas such as detector slow control, calibration and maintenance. CRISTAL must, therefore, support different views onto its data dependent on the role of the user. These data viewpoints are investigated in this paper. In the recent past two CMS Notes have been written about CRISTAL. The first note, CMS 1996/003, detailed the requirements for CRISTAL, its relationship to other CMS software, its objectives and reviewed the technology on which it would be based. CMS 1997/104 explained some important design concepts on which CRISTAL is and showed how CRISTAL integrated the domains of product data man- agement and workflow management. This note explains, through the use of diagrams, how CRISTAL can be established for detector production and used as the information source for analyses, such as calibration and slow controls, carried out by physicists. The reader should consult the earlier CMS Notes and conference papers for technical detail on CRISTAL - this note concentrates on issues surrounding the practical use of the CRISTAL software.
