By end of 2007 the CMS experiment will start running and Petabytes of data will be produced every year. To make analysis of this huge amount of data possible the CMS Physics Tools package builds the highest layer of the CMS experiment software. A core part of this package is the Candidate Model providing a coherent interface to different types of data. Standard tasks like combinatorial analyses, generic cuts, MC truth matching and fitting are supported. Advanced template techniques enable the user to add missing features easily. We explain the underlying model, certain details of implementation and present some use cases showing how the tools are currently used in generator and full simulation studies as preparation for analysis of real data.
