What is POMS

The Production Operations Management System (POMS) is a project to design a service which assists production teams and analysis groups of experiments in their MC production and DATA processing.
POMS provides a web interface that enables automated jobs submission on distributed resources according customers’ requests and subsequent monitoring and recovery of failed submissions, debugging and record keeping.
The system is interfaced to SAM for the data handling and FIFEmon for monitoring.
The ultimate goal is the most efficient utilization of all computing resources available to experiments, while providing a simple and transparent interface between users and the complexity of the grid.
