Mechanical structure and shipping crate (Matt) Figures

  • Matt reviewed some figures of the support structure design that John F has been developing at IU.

Planning for October review (All)

  • We spent most of the meeting discussing the status and plans for the TDR
  • We agreed to try and have completed sections submitted to svn over the weekend. Mike will start editing the complete document early next week and will followup on list with questions.
  • The goal is to have a draft for the internal GlueX review by the end of next week. So far Joe, Carsten and Dave Mack have agreed to serve as reviewers.

After Friday's meeting I talked with Patrizia Rossi about the "Program Management" aspect of the review, and she provided some documents for guidance.

  • Project Management talk from the initial RICH review
  • Project Management document finalized ~6 months after the initial RICH review
  • A lot of the aspects will be similar to what we need, but the pieces we probably need to focus on for the DIRC review are:
    1. Project timeline with well defined milestones and contingencies (eg. when will the bar boxes be transported from SLAC?)
    2. Budget for each fiscal year (and maybe quarterly)
