Abstract: We outline the strategy for and summarize on the result of an effective collaboration for providing an on-line model for the commissioning of the FRIB (Facility for Rare Isotope Beams). For numerical efficiency, the model is based on the beam envelope formalism for Linacs from the 1980s and an elaborate RF cavity model developed by FRIB. The following topics will be covered: “Model-Based vs. Equipment Control”, “Why Yet Another Simulation Code?”, “The Merits of Automated Regression Testing”, “Software Requirements: A Use Case Approach”, “The Benefits of a Tightly Integrated Python Interface by Design”, “Rapid Prototyping and Re-Factoring”, “Software Infrastructure, and “Deliverables”.
