This event simulation experiment is a compute intensive task due to the complexity of the Monte-Carlo simulation implemented on the GEANT engine. Data needed as input for the simulation (stored in the ROOT format), are classified into two categories: conditions data for describing the detector status when data are recorded, and background triggers data for noise signal necessary to obtain a realistic simulation. In this chapter, the grid approach is applied to the BaBar production framework using the INFN-GRID network.
