CAT Chat Minutes

June 23, 2008

Operations Update, Mark Beno

Beno reported that the percentage of scheduled time for the past week was 96.1%, while the mean time between faults (MTBF) was 70.6. There were four faults.

Beno also reminded the group of the New User IT Orientation Workshop, Navigating IT at the APS, which was originally scheduled for Wednesday, June 25, 2008. Since this conflicts with the APS/Users Monthly Operations Meeting, the workshop may have to be rescheduled.

Beno talked about the General User Proposal Review and Allocation Schedule that was distributed to all GUP Beamline Administrators earlier today. Beno noted that as soon as we know what the baseline shifts for 2008-3 will be, the beamlines will be notified.
