ESAC review completed 16-18 October

The Experimental Systems Advisory Committee (ESAC) held a review of FRIB experimental systems 16-18 October.

The focus of the review was to assess whether experimental systems scope is being managed to deliver the baseline with a high likelihood of success, and whether technical design verification, technical, and environmental issues are being addressed appropriately.

In addition, the progress in the planning for the A1900 and transfer hall reconfiguration was reviewed. All charge questions were answered in the affirmative.

ESAC found that with the changes in technical management and the availability of an integrated schedule through the end, appropriate progress is being made. ESAC provided a number of recommendations and advice, including making effective use of the schedule now available and fully developing acceptance criteria and test plans for the remaining scope.
