ENGINEERING AND IMPLEMENTATION BRANCH (EIB)




BRANCH OBJECTIVES


  • To consolidates engineering and implementation functions to more efficiently and consistently support all modeling groups.
  • Separates implementation functions from model science chain of command, better enabling the application and enforcement of common standards required for implementing code on NCEP's operational systems

FUNCTIONS INCLUDE


  • Develops and manages the systems architecture and software infrastructure for EMC's modeling and data assimilation systems.
  • Manages the code repository and its associated rules and procedures.
  • Manages process for pre-implementation testing and works with Modeling and Data Assimilation Branch (MDAB) scientists on designing and conducting the test.
  • Manages and improves data processing and reformatting for I/O data.
  • Works with MDAB scientific developers and NCEP Central Operations to optimize the model and data assimilation systems for maximum efficiency on NCEP high performance computing platforms.
