About the IDSB
The Implementation and Data Services Branch (formerly known as the Production Management Branch)
supports the implementation, maintenance, and "Tier-2" support of the operational
production suite on the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's (NOAA) High
Performance Supercomputing systems and of the applications on NOAA's Integrated
Dissemination Program (IDP) systems. The IDSB serves as the technical transition
between the research and development of all aspects of the National Centers for
Environmental Prediction's computing algorithms and their operational implementation.
The IDSB is also responsible for ensuring the timely and efficient flow of data to
our customers and implementing changes to products communicated to and from the
National Weather Service (NWS), such as product identification, availability, and/or
routing in support of the NWS core switching system.
The monitoring duties performed by the Senior Duty Meteorologists (SDM) and Senior Operations Specialists (SOS) (and
the SDMs and SOSers themselves) that were previously part of PMB have been moved to NCO's
Operational Monitoring Branch (OMB).
