The Production Operations Management Service (POMS) is a project to design a service which will assist the production teams and the analysis groups of the experiments in their scientific computational work.
POMS aims to provide a system that enables automated jobs submission on distributed resources according customers’ requests and subsequent monitoring and recovery of failed submissions, debugging and record keeping.
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.

The production instance of POMS is at


The scope of this system is to assist Production Teams and Analysis groups of the experiments 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.
