How the pipeline operates

ORAC-DR is a data-driven pipeline. This means that it does things in response to incoming data and uses the information associated with that data to determine how to process a file. It is also a sequential (i.e. non-parallel) process. This means it only does one thing at a time. As a result, ORAC-DR is always doing one of two things
