An ASML system holds thousands of hardware components, each performing its function-ality only in combination with the correct software and configuration settings. This is a great amount of information that needs to be maintained, particularly during the system integration phase when hardware, software and settings are all under development in paral-lel. A machine configuration reporting tool, named Pandora verifies which configuration items have been installed on a certain system. This report describes the design and imple-mentation of an improved version of the Pandora tool, referred as Pandora X. The new solu-tion retrieves and analyzes different machine data and tries to match the way of thinking of machine configuration architects and engineers when determining the system configuration status through the system upgrade process.
