In preparation for the IOTA ring commissioning, a comprehensive framework for beam-optics tuning has been developed and tested during the FAST superconducting linac operations. The software system played an important role in establishing beam circulation and precise lattice adjustments for various IOTA experiments in the first research run in 2018-2019. The software uses an extended LOCO algorithm with a strong emphasis on the online tuning capabilities that require tight integration with a control system. The integration with ACNET allowed using the same framework to study and optimize other beamlines of the Fermilab complex, including the transfer lines for Muon g-2, Mu2e and the Delivery Ring. A part of the computational code used for matching lattices to experimental data was successfully applied to the design of lattice options for the IOTA experiments, FAST linac, and several other cases.
