The goal of the data generation process is to ensure the availability of a quality controlled set on a daily basis by the end of day. Quality control is done by means of data analysis to detect outliers of specific instruments quotes as well as inconsistencies among data points (e.g. points of a curve). Clarification of the reasons, corrections and documentation are important elements for a sound operation. Some data is not direct observable but needs to be generated, e.g. zero and credit curve stripping, constant maturities generation or volatility surfaces - for which the performance of several calculation steps and the administration of instrument sets (e.g. issuer bond sample) is necessary. Furthermore the history generation of market data and the performance of a similar quality control is as well part of the job. Here in addition specific procedures to fill up missing data by proxy rates are an important part of the overall concept.
