MICE MPB4Schedule and milestone overview
  • Top Level schedule and critical path
  • Summary status of Step IV deliverables
  • Principal schedule drivers and concerns
  • Convergence of UK and International schedules
  • Milestone monitoring
  • Conclusion
  • Andy Nichols, STFC, 31/10/12 Present schedule slide, approved by MICE at CM34, October Q2 2014 Long shutdown Aug 2014 2018 Possibility of Step V At 2017 STEP IV Step IV readyQ2, 2014 Critical path for Step IV, courtesy Alan Grant Principal Schedule drivers and concerns As usual, the major deliverables are the main influence: Spectrometer solenoids Recent delay with vent line blockage and heater controls Decision to ship both magnets at once is sensible – makes planning easier on both sides Training behaviour is clearly a schedule and resource issue Magnetic shielding Work underway on default plan for Step IV But local return yoke is being engineered in parallel MICE will need a branch point in early/mid 2013 Cannot discuss Step IV schedule implications of return yoke now Coupling magnets Manufacturing plan is now much more robust Resource-limited delivery schedule will be presented Plan out to Steps V & VI will be a close match with UK flat funding profile Principal Schedule drivers and Concerns We will now be significantly later with Step IV (around Q2, 2014) Means that running can start only just before the long ISIS shutdown in (August 2014, six months) The intense construction period can only begin when the solenoids get here – Summer 2013 Need to re-plan installation for 2013 (again): Magnetic shielding implementation TIARA milestone for RF; installation of first amplifier Limited LH2 work (the majority cannot start until the liquid absorber is being integrated in Step IV) EMR run in February 2013 Commissioning of the AFC module Keeping the team together and motivated will be difficult Convergence of UK and International schedules The UK project schedule obviously needs to map onto those of the remaining international deliverables: EMR (UNIGE) Spectrometer solenoids (US) RFCC modules(US) The EMR delivery, installation and running has already been incorporated in the UK schedule A resource-limited delivery plan for the solenoids and CC magnets and the overall installation will be presented today This has been constructed by Alan Grant, Ken Long, Alan Bross, Mark Palmer and Richard & Peter from FNAL The dates discussed today are based on that schedule Milestone monitoring and control MICE WBS has been re-defined to reflect the project’s evolution: Level 2 Managers identified and invited to report on their major milestones each week – tracking is looked after by Gail Hanson 2.1 – Project Management - Nichols 2.1.2 – Schedule co-ordination – Grant 2.2 – Muonbeamline maintenance – Nebrensky 2.3 – Engineering and infrastructure – Hayler 2.4 - Detectors and Instrumentation – Bross 2.5 – Magnet systems – Preece 2.6 – LH2 delivery – Watson 2.7 – RF systems – Ronald 2.8 – Computing – Colling 2.9 – Operations - Coney MICE Revised WBS – Level II WP Managers shown in red Spectrometer solenoid milestone progress Reported and updated weekly
  • Engineering infrastructure and AFC milestone profile
  • Magnetic shielding will be incorporated in the infrastructure WP
  • Conclusion The enforced delay to Step IV is unfortunate. Motivating the team during the hiatus will be difficult The proximity of the long ISIS shutdown is now very awkward But we now have a better idea of reconciling aspirations with available resources It’s clear that concentrating the right level of engineering effort in the right place for as long as it takes brings results – need to apply across the project And the first major deliverable, FC#1 is now at RAL!
