  This work presents an extensive overview of the design choices and implementation of the Beam-Based Feedback System (BBFS) used in operation until the LHC Run 2. The main limitations of the BBFS are listed and a new design called BFCLHC, which uses the CERN Front-End Software Architecture (FESA), framework is proposed. The main implementation details and new features which improve upon the usability of the new design are then emphasised. Finally, a hardware agnostic testing framework developed by the LHC operations section is introduced.
