for the MID detector simulation, we need to access:
- the HV of the detection elements
- a set of parameters that is used for the cluster size (this is tuned once and probably won’t change)
In the Run2, the HV came from the DCS and was stored in the OCDB.
The parameters instead were hard-coded in the code (very bad practice): it would be better to move them in a database for Run3.
It is worth noting that these values are only used in simulation, not in the reconstruction phase.
What is the proper way to manage the simulation parameters? Should we use the CCDB interface or some FairRoot tool?
Thanks in advance for further information!
