  With the successful commissioning of CRYRING, the first accelerator being operated using the new control system for FAIR (Facility for Antiproton and Ion Research), also the new settings management system is now used in a production environment for the first time. Development efforts are ongoing to realize requirements necessary to support accelerator operations at FAIR. At CRYRING, new concepts for scheduling parallel beams are being evaluated. After these successful tests and the first production use, the focus now is to include major parts of the existing facility (synchrotron SIS18, storage ring ESR and transfer lines) into the system in the context of the Controls Retrofit project. First dry runs are planned for Q4 this year. The settings management system is based on the LSA framework, that was introduced at CERN in 2001 and is being developed and enhanced together in a collaboration with GSI. Notwithstanding all successes of LSA at both institutes, a review study was set up with the goal to make the LSA framework fit for the future. Outcomes of this study and impacts on the settings management system for FAIR are being presented.
