Paper Abstract

We present a report on the current development status of the ALMA Observing Tool, describing how the tool operates as an integrated environment for proposal and program preparation. The paper also covers the science-oriented graphical tools for both spatial and spectral setup, their system-oriented equivalents, local oscillator and correlator setup assistants as well as program validation.
