Preliminary Baseline Review – Charge (1/3)

The purpose of the Preliminary Baseline Review of the Rare Symmetry Violating Processes (RSVP) project is to evaluate the scientific goals, technical approaches, scope, cost, schedule, and management structure presented by the RSVP team. The RSVP project plan will be presented in August 2005 to the National Science Board (NSB) for their consideration of a construction start for the RSVP MREFC project. In preparation for the presentation to the NSB, the National Science Foundation will conduct a comprehensive Baseline Review of the RSVP project on 20-22 April 2005. The Preliminary Baseline Review, conducted by the RSVP Project Office, is being convened in order to identify weaknesses or inadequacies in the RSVP baselines in the hope that they may be corrected or otherwise addressed in time for the NSF review.

RSVP is a technically aggressive program of experiments that will run using high-intensity beams from the Brookhaven National Laboratory AGS accelerator. The AGS is used primarily as an injector for the RHIC heavy-ion collider, but it is needed for this purpose only several hours per day. Much of its capacity is therefore in principle available for other experiments such as RSVP.

RSVP consists of two experiments called KOPIO and MECO. The WBS structure has been broken into five components: [1] The KOPIO detector, [2] The MECO detector, apart from the large superconducting magnets of MECO, [3] The MECO superconducting magnets, [4] The AGS Upgrades for RSVP, [5] The RSVP Project Office. The separation of the MECO detector from the MECO superconducting magnets is mandated because these three large state-of-the-art magnets dwarf all other components of RSVP and are major critical path components, and so require special attention. The AGS Upgrades for RSVP consist of items specifically designed for RSVP, such as the actual beam lines for the two detectors, plus AGS infrastructure items which are thought to be necessary to ensure a safe and reliable high-intensity AGS running environment for both RHIC injection and the RSVP experiments.

Preliminary Baseline Review – Charge (2/3)

Because of the short time between this review and the NSF Baseline Review, it is unlikely that a written report will be required from this review. The conclusions of the review are to be communicated to the RSVP Project Office and the experimenters in the closeout session on Friday, 8 April 2005. Such conclusions may include analysis of the current status, recommendations of any kind to the presenters and/or the Project Office and, most importantly, action items that the committee believes should be immediately addressed in order to prepare for the NSF review.

In assessing project readiness, the Committee should address the following specific items for each of the project elements:

  • Technical/Scope: Does the proposed design and associated implementation approach satisfy the performance requirements? Is the project scope appropriate in order to realize the scientific goals?
  • Cost Estimates: Is the cost estimate consistent with the plan to deliver the technical scope with the stated performance? Is the contingency adequate for the risk?
  • Schedule: Is the proposed schedule reasonable and appropriate in view of the technical tasks and proposed funding profiles? Has the critical path been identified?
  • Resources: Is the proposed estimated resource allocation adequate to meet the goals of the project? Are the manpower needs well understood, and is the ramp up of these resources realistic? Is there an appropriate mix of expertise represented in the proposed manpower profiles?
  • Operations: Is the plan for operating the experiments reasonable? Are the costs well understood and characterized?
  • Management: Is the proposed management structure and process adequate to deliver the proposed technical scope within specifications, budget, and schedule? Are there sufficient resources allocated to management to allow it to function effectively?
  • Risks and Mitigation Strategies:Have the risks for the cost, schedule and scope been identified? Are there adequate mitigation strategies for these risks?
