Outline of this discussion:

Agreement of scope of supply and extent of interface among different suppliers of the same module.

Distinguishing between a stand-alone item and an interface item through drawing convention

Using the global reference point as an interface check. This is introduced to the collaboration as the “coat hanger” technique.

Distinguishing between a stand-alone item and an interfacing item through drawing convention

Stand alone items are those within the scope and responsibility of the same supplier and as such it does not interface with any other equipment suppliers. As an example, the Magnet Coil is a stand alone item as its design bears no impact on either the Window or the Absorber supplier.

Where items made by one supplier and joined to those made by another supplier, they are known as interfacing items. As an example, the flange in the Large End Plate (marked in Pink) is an interface item as it interfaces with the Warm Vessel supplier.

In the drawing on the left, there are three different suppliers, each is marked with a different colour code. The parts that interface with other parts of different suppliers are marked in pink. Drawings on the Pink parts have a joined ownership of all the interfacing suppliers.

In the MICE project, the pink parts will have a different drawing convention than the rest. Any changes made on these drawings will be notified to all the related interface suppliers for comments and consent.

The Coat Hanger technique

An equipment which has multiple suppliers would comprise stand alone parts and interface parts as explained previously.

The design and supply of the stand alone parts are the sole responsibility of the individual suppliers, but the design and arrangement on the interface parts have the joint ownership of all those who have an interest in that interface.

The WBS project engineer is responsible for specifying the interface dimensions and space envelop. As long as the stand alone equipments are within the given space envelop, the suppliers are free to make changes to them. No approval is needed for making these changes. But any alteration to the interface parts must have the approval of the project engineer. This must be communicated via the interface drawings.

Even then, it is still not possible to catch all the changes made to the interface drawings because of the nature and the size of the project. A better system which could automatically trigger a warning to the project engineer of changes made is therefore needed.

The Coat Hanger technique is designed to offer this facility and is a good way to ensure interface compatibility


Mice muon interface meeting at mission inn riverside california january 27 30 2004

The Coat Hanger technique (continue)

The conventional way of assembling the different parts together is by attaching the adjoining parts to a common interface boundary. Where there are multiple interfaces, or where one part joins onto another part and another part and so forth, it would be difficult to define the order of interface. It would also accumulate errors as parts are assembles related to each other only locally and not globally. This makes the checking of interface compatibility extremely difficult.

As an example, the tiling of a wall……….

This is what the drawing says how the wall should be tiled

This tile is slightly oversized, but not noticeable without a dimensional check

Sequence of tiling is as shown:Black arrows first, followed by red arrows

Mismatch / foul went undetected until the job is nearly finished

The conventional way of assembling the different parts together is by attaching the adjoining parts to a common interface boundary. Where there are multiple interfaces, or where one part joins onto another part and another part and so forth, it would be difficult to define the order of interface. It would also accumulate errors as parts are assembles related to each other only locally and not globally. This makes the checking of interface compatibility extremely difficult.

The way to overcome this is to avoid having to assemble parts onto each other. In this new concept, every parts will have a reference centre which coincides with one of the globally registered centres designed to position the magnet modules relatively to the beam line and then to the experimental hall. This reference centre acts like a coat hanger

In this new concept, every parts will have a reference centre which coincides with one of the globally registered centres designed to position the magnet modules relatively to the beam line and then to the experimental hall. This reference centre acts like a coat hanger

The referencing system works like a global navigation system. Through the reference centres, we can refer the position of each parts to a global coordinate. By hanging the various parts to a globally registered centre, it will automatically assemble the parts to a pre-defined position. Any interface incompatibility will be easily detected as each equipment / parts will have its unique place in the global coordinate system. No two parts should have the same coordinates.

We will insist on this centre being retained on all the stand alone and interface drawings.


Mice muon interface meeting at mission inn riverside california january 27 30 2004

This is how it works on MICE:

There are different levels of reference centre, designated to have a similar “level” allocation as the WB packages.

The level 1 reference centre is the centre of the experimental hall;

The level 2 reference centres are those along the beam line centre for the positioning of each of the modules;

The level 3 reference centres are the centres of the individual modules

As an example:-

The Focus Coil module will have a level 3 reference centre. All the parts associated with the windows and the absorber will be referenced to this level 3 reference centre.

The Focus Coil modules, the Coupling Coil, the detector modules and any equipment that are aligned to the beam centre line will be referenced to the level 2 reference centre.

The beam line centres will be referenced to the level 1 reference centre etc.

These parts will have level 3 reference centre attached

The level 3 reference centre on the FC module


Mice muon interface meeting at mission inn riverside california january 27 30 2004

All the AFC parts will then be hung to the level 3 reference centre at the Focus Coil

Interface compatibility check at a glance


Mice muon interface meeting at mission inn riverside california january 27 30 2004

Summary

We believe we have a well defined scope of supply between the three suppliers within the AFC module;

The handling of the interface issues has been thought through well and the separation of the stand alone items and interface items will minimise a lot of unnecessary work required to update drawings every time a change is called for, be it relevant to the interface or not.

The control of interface via a drawing convention will allow the project engineers to concentrate on changes that have implication on the other suppliers.

The Coat Hanger technique is an effective tool in keeping interface control simple and fool proof. It remains to be seen how efficient it is to be implemented across the MICE project.
