Green led: done Yellow led: almost finished Orange led: in progress Red led: not yet started


Item Status Notes Expected completion Other comments
Sheet prep Yellow led 9/9 wrapped/mounted; need to test, run overnight Test Mar 6, overnight runs this week  
HV cabling Orange led 6 channels unaccounted: replace MHV with SHV, test pigtail, divvy up very-long cable Mar 6/7 May find more cables somewhere
Structure assembly Red led Rob Loos due tomorrow with parts Mar 6-8 May be small pieces Rob needs to adjust
Hodoscope reconnection Red led After Robs hodoscope mounts After structure Rob is adjusting heights/sizes to better fit 3x2 bar layout
Trigger layout Orange led Have plan but need to spend time, thought Ongoing  
Readout cabling Red led   After trigger layout is finalized  
Cable labeling Red led Need label-maker and labels After HV/readout cabling  
Timing card test Red led Must have TCDS available During global run  
DAQ software Orange led Expect more information from CAEN soon ASAP  


Item Responsible person Status Notes
