Scope

The scope of this system is to assist the Production Group in managing and monitoring requests for production computing, from
initial request submission, approval as appropriate, assignment to operations staff, division into smaller work units,
job submission, montitoring job and output file progress, and post-mortem triage of jobs that fail.

Non-production jobs from experiment users are explicitly excluded from the current scope, however future requests may come to expand this to cover non-production jobs.
Furthermore, this system should not duplicate the project tracking facilities in SAM, nor the service monitoring features
in FIFEMon and Gratia; rather this system should refer to data in those other systems, or possibly keep summarized data
from those systems.
