Paper Abstract

After 7 years of operation, the GTC 10.4m ground optical telescope, still has areas of improvement in crucial services like Time Synchronization. This paper discusses the difficulties of discovering the origins and effects of issues, during simultaneous event control, in a highly distributed environment, where actions on different subsystems have to be precisely synchronized; the importance of the final delivery phase in a development process; the applied solutions and future improvements.
