Constraints during this period:

Date
Shift
Tasks
Shift Leader (help)
Tues.-Fri., Dec. 1-4
all
cooldown to 4.5 K (blue first, done by Friday eve)
hi-pot and polarity checks, p.s. group
finish bake-out for Blue ring, continue Yellow bake-out jobs

Friday, Dec. 4
eve
establish injection and coasting beam
setup injection kickers
instrumentation checkout: loss monitors, tunes, dcct, wcm, bpm’s
bpm's need to be setup to measure the first turn beam with no RF, initially
AtR synchro should get setup
injection orbit correction
Check energy and fix

Saturday, Dec. 5
eve
finish injection and begin capture setup
setup injection damper
continue instrumentation checkout: orbits, BBQ setup
check sextupole polarities, coupling angles = uses BBQ for tunes
LLRF commissioning (at injection, no ramping)
Yun
Sunday, Dec. 6
