Gianni presented the reorganization of the (HL-)LHC.
After having reminder the limit of present mask approach.
An alternative workflow was presented via example. Links to documentations, afs and github repositories were given.
The main ingredient of the reorganization is to centralize the code, document it, separate the code parameters from the MADX code and to split it separate files (called modules). This increases the modularity of the code, the possibility to define better interfaces and to
establish area of expertise/responsibility.
The functionality of the single module was presented.
Sofia asked if the proposed working flow is working also with EOS. Guido confirmed that this is possible since all the folders are presently synchronized with EOS at /eos/project/a/abpdata/lhc/optics/.
There was a general consensus on the strategy.
There are minutes attached to this event.
