The Sample Management System (SMS) is an internal ESS wide computer system designed to track the progress of samples collected in the field, processed by the laboratories, and stored in the ESS archives. The goal of the SMS is to corporately manage samples and related information generated by the ESS programs. The SMS is currently being developed by the project "Deployment of a corporate, integrated sample and information management system" under the Data Management and Dissemination Branch (DMDB). This project builds on the work accomplished by other projects under the CCGK program.
