Paper Abstract

The ALMA Software (~ 80% completed) is in daily use at the ALMA Observatory and has been developed as an end-toend system including: proposal preparation, dynamic scheduling, instrument control, data handling and formatting, data archiving and retrieval, automatic and manual data processing, and support for observatory operations. This presentation will expand on some software management aspects, procedures for releases, integrated system testing and deployment in Chile. The need for a realistic validation environment, now achieved with a two antenna interferometer at the observatory, and the balance between incremental development and stability of the software (a challenge at the moment) will be explained.
