Abstract
Tilecal is the barrel hadron calorimeter of ATLAS. An extensive research an d development program was carried out, and three full-size prototype module s were produced and tested from 1996 to 1998. Following ATLAS internal revi ews, the construction of the calorimeter started in 1998; about 30 % of the modules of the calorimeter are already constructed. We report on the exper ience of the mass production of the optical components and modules of the t ile calorimeter.
