h2. Actions
12
13
* ACTION  *(Pasternak/Rogers)*: determine magnetic settings routine - do we imagine "equivalent coil"? Implement iron in MAUS(!)? Run everything through OPERA?
14
** By email, preliminary analysis indicates simple scaling should do the job; there may be some measurable asymmetry; Holge to make a presentation in due course
15
* ACTION *(Pasternak/Rogers)*: determine standard magnetic settings for commissioning e.g. magnet currents for 420 mm beta in solenoid mode 
16
** move to agenda
17
* ACTION *(Pasternak/Rogers)*: determine standard beamline settings 
18
** move to agenda
19
* ACTION *(Rogers)*: Xboa specification document
20
** Cover in xboa item on agenda
21
* ACTION *(Rogers)*: Bring in Dobbs MAUS analysis framework to xboa?
22
** Posted to launchpad as https://code.launchpad.net/~scifianalysis/scifi/trunk
23
** Cover in xboa item on agenda
24
* ACTION *(Rogers/Rajaram/Blackmore*): [[Publications_and_Figures|Official plots and publications pages]]
25
** Done
26
* ACTION *(Rogers)*: Set the desired number of good muons following trigger revamp/what are the aims/scope?
27
** Move to agenda
28
* ACTION *(Rogers)*: Redo trigger/data rate analysis with optimised beamline
29
** Move to agenda
30
* ACTION *(Rogers)*: Redo trigger/data rate analysis with better transverse cut
31
** Move to agenda
32
* ACTION *(Rogers)*: Check momentum spread/momentum cut effects (what happens to the beam if we make a bigger momentum spread)
33
** Move to agenda
34
* ACTION *(Rogers)*: Look at TOF2 trigger effect on analysis (e.g. what are the consequences if we trigger downstream of the experiment on rate?
35
** Move to agenda
36
* ACTION *(Rogers)*: Determine effect of increased dip depth in ISIS (e.g. what are the consequences if we take more particles into the experiment? does it help?)
37
** Move to agenda
38
* ACTION *(Rogers)*: Tolerances - in light of magnet mapping activity, formalise tolerances on magnet alignment
39
** Not relevant/too late to do anything - reject action
40
* ACTION *(Rogers)*: Tolerances - controls people ask what are the tolerances on magnet current

h2. RLSR/MPB Actions
44
45
* ACTION *(Rajaram/Rogers)*: Investigate as a matter of urgency technical means to optimize the trigger efficiency for ‘good’ muons, and remove dataflow bottlenecks before the Step IV run.
46
** Move to agenda
47
* ACTION *(Rogers)*: Plan and execute a blind ‘physics analysis challenge’ in order to ensure the readiness of the whole collaboration for data analysis, early in 2015.
48
** Done
49
* ACTION *(Pasternak)*: Ensure optimization of the beamline settings in order to preserve matching at the entrance of the ionization channel and potentially increase the number of ‘good’ muons, during the Step IV run.
50
** Duplicate of action above
51
* ACTION *(Boyd)*: Include a set of measurements in a configuration with large beta functions in Step IV data taking, in order to validate the muon tracking tools for trajectories with large displacements passing through nonlinear magnetic fields, and to explore the size of the cooling system apertures.
52
** Move to agenda
53
54
h2. Actions following Run planning meeting
55
56
* ACTION *(Uchida)*: Improve analysis of tracker alignment in context of residual fields; improve estimate of magnitude of effect, degaussing procedure, use of beam momentum to constrain the residual fields effect.
57
** Cover in agenda
58
* ACTION *(Rogers)*: Arrange run planning review at the beginning of May
59
** Now owned by Steve Boyd and operations
60
* ACTION *(Rogers)*: Add contingency
61
** Done, version 2 of the note is available
62
* ACTION *(Nugent)*: Estimate data rate with cooling channel magnets off
63
** Still waiting on good April data - this weekend?
