This project has evolved a bit from it's original goal of trying to apply GDA to SAXS. We are now working to introduce CSS-BOY (MEDM replacement) and our locally built scan-engine. The goal at this time is to replace the current use of SPEC scripts.

We are now working with a new plan. We have chosen not to continue to pursue our original plan.
Our current plan is to:
- Continue to pursue development of operator interface screens with CSS BOY
- 15 ID group will continue with the creation of screens.
- SSG and BCDA need to continue work on completing MEDM to BOY converter and apply conversions to produce a set of replacement screens for synApp displays.
- Until synApps screens are completed, develop a uniform approach to launch MEDM to use existing displays
- Deploy APS scan-engine to replace use of SPEC
- Modify existing python app to generate scan-engine script instead of SPEC script.

CSS-BOY has been successfully deployed and is in use for pinhole SAXS instrument. We are presently introducing the scan-engine into the environment, and have demonstrated a simple scan script. We are proceeding to more fully integrate the new scan-engine into their existing workflow, which involves modifying a python app to generate the scan script from configuration parameters entered by a user.
