Tasks with CMD - Configuration Management & Documentation

The group CMD Configuration Management & Documentation addresses the monitoring of the configuration, the installation and functionality of the whole accelerator machine. Hereby CMD Configuration Management & Documentation fulfills an essential interface business.

CDB and Interface Management
  • Development, installation and operation of a component data base (CDB) is done by CMD Configuration Management & Documentation. The CDB provides quality assured data from all relevant accelerator components and their interdependencies. Moreover the database is the hub for maintaining the technical requirements for each machine (e. g. machine and beam parameters).The collection and structuring of this data supports change processes (e. g. engineering change requests) and workflows within the Configuration Management. The CDB will deliver essential information for the control system.
  • The CDB can internally be accessed via http://cdb.acc.gsi.de, from outside via https://www-oracle.gsi.de/pls/cdb. All employees of FAIR@GSI and FAIR GmbH with a GSI Weblogin Account have automatically received read-only rights. A log-in can be done via GSI Weblogin Account (also used for project time recording (PROZ) or safety instructions). Other persons involved in the FAIR project who need access to the CDB may contact cdb-service(at)gsi.de.
DMS and Documentation
  • the administration and accessibility of the entire technical documentation for approval-workflows as well as for final storage of relevant documentation in desginated document-management-systems
  • issuing and administration of user authorizations within the framework of the document management

Ad interim the group CMD Configuration Management & Documentation currently also covers aspects of quality management: Templates and Processes are drawn up for e. g. filling in special documents or for the change management.
