Abstract:
The Mu2e experiment recently completed a successful CD­2/3b review (Oct. 2014). The collaboration is now working towards the next step in the approval process – a CD­3c review in late 2015. This requires significant simulation and analysis campaigns. In addition, the experiment needs to plan for successful physics analysis once data taking begins. The Mu2e spokespersons and SCD management would like the committee to review and comment on:
1. The current offline computing infrastructure and tools, including build and release tools, simulation tools, framework, database, workflow, workflow management, data management, and operations. Are the tools, infrastructure, and established processes appropriate for this stage in the experiment? Are the tools, infrastructure, and established processes sufficient to engage non­expert resources from the collaboration? Are best practices being employed as appropriate? Is the experiment appropriately leveraging tools and expertise provided by SCD?
2. The requirements for the simulation campaign leading to the late 2015 CD review and the plan for meeting these requirements. Is the plan reasonable and achievable? Are the current infrastructure and tools capable of meeting these requirements in a timely manner? If not, what additional infrastructure and tools are required? Have adequate personnel resources, both from the experiment and SCD, been identified? If not, where are the personnel shortfalls?
