The International Linear Collider (ILC) physics and detector community recently completed an exercise to demonstrate the physics capabilities of detector concepts. The Detailed Baseline Design (DBD) involved the generation, simulation, reconstruction and analysis of large samples of Monte Carlo datasets. The detector simulations utilized extremely detailed Geant4 implementations of engineered detector elements. The datasets incorporated the full set of Standard Model physics backgraounds, as well as machine backgrounds, all overlaid with the correct time structure of overlapping events. We describe how this exercise was undertaken using Grid computing and storage elements, as well as the submission, bookkeeping and cataloging infrastructure developed to support this international endeavor.
