Abstract: The Daniel K. Inouye Solar Telescope (DKIST) is a 4-meter clear aperture solar telescope nearing the end of its construction on the summit of Haleakalā on the island of Maui, Hawai'i. It will be the largest solar telescope in the world when completed in summer 2020. We present a condensed overview of the DKIST Operations Commissioning Phase (OCP) which will start after the completion of construction. This Operations Commissioning phase will allow for a manageable transition from the end of construction into steady-state operations over the course of approximately one year. During this phase, science operations will specifically integrate, test and streamline its procedures by exercising through all steps of the DKIST’s Science Operations Lifecycle. We will also briefly introduce software tools that are or will be used by Science Operations, Technical Operations and the DKIST Data Center.
