We established the quality control sequence to realize the efficient observation and the production of homogeneous quality of the data. The flow is observation preparation, execution of the observation procedure, data acquisition, data archiving, data analysis, and feedback to the future observation sequence. They are closely connected with each other by the idea of observation data set. A science object frame would be valid after applying various calibrations to the data. Observation data set rule describes the 'relation' between these data: science frame and science frame, science frame and calibration frame, and calibration frame and calibration frame. 'Relation' means mainly the acquisition order and timing. The observation data set is an assembly of the data related by the observation data set rule. In the data analysis stage, the observation data set rule is used for collecting the data. Various number of data can be collected by modification of the observation data set rule. After evaluation of the analyzed data, we can find the proper observation data set rule. Then the new rule will be fed back to the observation preparation system as the template.
