The Prime Focus Spectrograph (PFS) of the Subaru Measurement of Images and Redshifts (SuMIRe) project for Subaru telescope includes four identical spectrograph modules fed by 600 fibers each. This paper presents the integration, alignment and test procedures for the first spectrograph module composed by an optical entrance unit that creates a collimated beam and distributes the light to three channels, two visible and one near infrared. In particular, we present the performance of the single Red channel module. Firstly, we report on the measured optical performance: optical quality and ghost analysis. We also report on the thermal performance of the visible camera cryostat. Finally, we describe the software used to control and monitor the instrument.
