Until now GFlash Simulations at CMS are used for studying electron and pion plus electromagnetic showers in the pseudorapidity range 3<$eta$<5. It has been proved that GFlash Simulations are 15% faster than Shower Library Simulations and that they have a better agreement with experimental data. Our attempt is to make our simulations run two times faster and enhance them for a larger range of pseudorapidity. So in the first step in our work we need to be sure there is a linear relation between the incoming energy of the electron/pion and the response in our photomultipliers detectors. We found that for both of them the response is linear, so now we are able to forward in enhancing our program.
