SciTrace Use-Case: Reusability of a Custom Data Reduction Pipeline

The SciTrace software stack facilitates to reuse software used for scientific research. This is achieved by capturing installation procedures in a containerized environment, archiving the used input parameters and data sources, and storing all in a well structured SciTrace package. Despite still in a prototype phase, SciTrace showed its usefulness and was already applied to a number of use cases. One of such uses cases is a reusablity of a custom data reduction pipeline. With the example of FaintCOS (custom data reduction for the Cosmic Origins Spectrograph on-board of the Hubble Space Telescope), we will show the advantages of using SciTrace by reusing the captured reduction pipeline without cumbersome re-installation.
