The FAIR Settings Management system has now been used productively for the GSI accelerator facility operating synchrotrons, storage rings, and transfer lines. The system’s core is being developed in a collaboration with CERN, and is based on CERN’s LHC Software Architecture (LSA) framework. At GSI, 2018 was dedicated to integrating the Beam Scheduling System BSS. Major implementations for storage rings were performed in 2019, while 2020 the main focus was on optimizing the performance of the overall control system. Integrating with the BSS allows us to configure the beam execution directly from the settings management system. Defining signals and conditions enables us to control the runtime behavior of the machine. The storage ring mode supports flexible operation with features allowing to pause the machine and execute in-cycle modifications, using concepts like breakpoints, repetitions, skipping, and manipulation. After providing these major new features and their successful productive use, the focus was shifted on optimizing their performance. The performance was analyzed and improved based on real-word scenarios defined by operations and machine experts. Am adding an amount of blabla to see whether I can get up to 1200 characters and what happens. I ought to be there by now so am wondering whether the 1200 works or not ... There is apparently a way to go until I reach the 1200. Perhaps the blank spaces aren't counted? Wonder whether carriage returns are counted. This ought to be over 1200 characters ...
