We discuss the current state of integrating the MUSE software pipeline (Weilbacher et.al. 2006, NewAR, 50, 405) into the AstroWise system. MUSE is a future integral-field spectrograph for the VLT, consisting of 24 integral field units. The MUSE data reduction pipeline is built using the Common Pipeline Library (CPL) provided by ESO. The AstroWise technology (Velentijn et. al. 2007, ASPC, 376, 491) integrates data lineage in processing, RDBMS, and large file storage. To integrate the MUSE pipeline, its metadata is used to build persistent objects for storage in the AstroWISE system. It is thought that this method could provide a convenient and quick method to implement future pipelines into AstroWISE. Current work on the integration includes handling multile IFUs, completing the pipeline integration, and use-case development.
