P.Martens presented a high level commissioning plan for the whole commissioning phase and the commissioning status as of December 6 (see annex 5).
A.Gabriel supported R.Harrison's request to have a detailed strawman plan for January/February. P.Martens expressed his doubts that such a plan would have any use since at this time it is fairly difficult to come up with a realistic schedule for the Jan/Feb time frame.
There is an action on the Project Scientist to clarify the issue of experiment movements during PTCS calibration (Action 17-1).
It was clarified that the CELIAS switch on will not necessarily monopolize the NRT channel for 10 days; other activties can be run in parallel. F.Felici pointed out, though, that he would like to keep the principle that first time actions of instruments should not be run in parallel with other activities, but only run in dedicated sessions. This has to be discussed on a case by case basis. Project and SOC will get together to discuss the cases which promise to be most beneficial to save time.
Switch on order after power-off: GOLF, VIRGO, MDI, SUMER, CDS, EIT/LASCO, UVCS, SWAN, CELIAS, CEPAC with TSTOL procedures subsequently run by the FOT for all the experiments, then shared NRT session. SUMER stressed that the substitution heaters must be switched on separately by the FOT, not collectively. There is an action on the PIs to provide power-off recovery procedures to the PS by December 15 (Action 17-2).
UVCS does not see a contamination risk by thruster firing after an ESR and therefore does not want to close door in case of an ESR.
Line of communication during commissioning: V.Domingo presented the line of communication during commissioning (see annex 6). J.Kohl raised the issue of an emergency shut down. There is an action on the Project Scientist to clarify with the FOT the execution of an emergency switch-off procedure on direct PI request, without the necessity of going through the normal line of communication (Action 17-3).
