Abstract: The VLT Data Flow System pipeline and quality control subsystem provides a general infrastructure for standard reduction and quality assessment of data obtained at the VLT facility. The main design challenge is to support a wide range of instruments in a distributed environment. The pipeline system can be configured, through a set of ASCII files, to handle several instrument simultaneously. It was designed using the object-oriented methodology and major parts of the baseline version will be written in Java using OMG/CORBA technology to support distributed objects.
