The Algorithm Scientific Software Integration and System Transition Team (ASSISTT) at STAR bridges the gap between research and operations. ASSISTT provides quality assurance by helping the science teams standardize and optimize their code along with creating and maintaining proper documentation in preparation for the transition. ASSISTT ensures quality assurance for the process by guaranteeing that the process standards for reviews and stakeholder involvement are met throughout the project lifecycle. Guiding teams through the review process takes much of the preparation burden off of the scientists. The consistent enforcement of standards across activities provides quality assurance for the entire R2O process. ASSISTT's methodology that has successfully transitioned a wide range of products to operations will be discussed.
