The model-independent analysis (MIA) method in accelerators has not yet come into widespread use, unfortunately. This is perhaps due to a lack of convenient tools to bring the measurement data to the results stage. At the Advanced Photon Source, we used the SDDS Toolkit and the SDDS-compliant EPICS Toolkit in simple and not-sosimple applications for diagnosing operational problems from beginning to end in a short time. We were able to make quantitative measurements of pulsed power supply noise
