The OPUS pipeline was developed at the Space Telescope Science Institute to convert raw telemetry into calibrated data sets. The challenge was to upgrade a system which currently processes roughly sixty observations per day on a single CPU to one which can accommodate over 600 exposures per day. The OPUS response yields an environment which can handle multiple instances of multiple tasks running on a cluster of machines processing data on multiple paths. To manage such a potentially complex environment, two Motif managers were developed; one to handle processes, the second to handle observations.
