  1. PM report • Schedule comment • Coupling magnets • Major staffing concerns Andy Nichols, STFC, UKNF/MICE PSAG, 19-7-11

  2. Schedule comment • Much discussion over MICE schedule recently: OsC, MPB, CM30, FAC • We can say: • Step IV can be ready by Q3 2012 with reasonable confidence • We will aim to have Step V ready for running before the long ISIS shutdown in August, 2014, BUT this is critically dependent on the CC magnet delivery plan • If the above cannot be achieved, MICE will assess the possibility of combining Steps V & VI to be ready as soon after the long shutdown as possible

  3. Coupling magnets • Even if everything goes to plan, our ‘aimed for’ date of August 2014 for Step V only works if the RFCC #1 can be delivered by April 2013 • AN thinks this is impossible, the present baseline is: • that the MuCool and both MICE magnets built in series by the US/China group • We must work in parallel, to even keep our self-imposed schedule, let alone improve on it • Plan to test first CC coil in US is being formed • Promising discussions with US Groups – Qi-Huan could supply three kits of parts, then: • US assembles the MuCool magnet • UK/US assembles the two MICE magnets in parallel – like to think we can be part of that plan • Our only chance is to think like this!

  4. Major staffing concerns • Roy Preece’s appointment as part of magnet partnership has been a conspicuous success • Largely because of this, a request has been made for a counterpart on the Coupling magnets – believe we should strongly support this • Willie Spensley’s departure (see last month) is very serious • Although we are not breaking any CDM rules (AN and VF are the default), the situation is not sustainable • Need to get feedback soon from the Resources Forum on: • Creation of CVN for Principal Contractor • Retention of the two fitters (who have employment rights under TUPE) • Extension of the present Merit contract while the above is sorted out (six months minimum) • We have until when the present contract expires on September 15th I need a course of action, with decision points and timescales from TD/HR/Resources Forum
