Author Affiliations +
This paper describes the system engineering work at the VLT Survey Telescope on the ESO’s Paranal observatory. The error budget, as well as many subsystems and their integration in the overall telescope system, have been deeply reviewed in the last years of construction and commissioning. The lessons learned in the management of the commissioning of a complex system in a remote site are also analyzed.
