CDB

The Component Database (CDB) is a tool to assist in documenting, organizing, and tracking the components for the accelerator and beamlines. It assists in capturing the documentation of components, provides a repository for inspection and measurement data (e.g. travelers), and supports the logging of component history through the component’s life cycle. The CDB also provides links and interfaces to other commonly used administrative tools, such as PDMLink, ICMS, PARIS, etc.

Description

The Component Database (CDB) is a tool to assist in documenting, organizing, and tracking the components for the accelerator and beamlines. It assists in capturing the documentation of components, provides a repository for inspection and measurement data (e.g. travelers), and supports the logging of component history through the component’s life cycle. The CDB also provides links and interfaces to other commonly used administrative tools, such as PDMLink, ICMS, PARIS, etc.

The CDB has the potential to capture a complete “Bill of Materials” for the MBA well before the installation timeframe. Having an exhaustive BOM in a relational database will facilitate careful planning and tracking of the construction and installation process, a prerequisite for such an ambitious schedule.

There are three primary “domains” captured by the CDB: Component Catalog, Designs, and Inventory. A clear understanding of these domains and how they interrelate is important for proper and consistent use of the CDB. Please see the documentation by following the link below for more information.
