  • Reduced opening hours10:00 - 12:00, 14:00 - 16:00

    In any case these were the most popular times

    Help given out of these hours on request.

  • New financial conditionsApproved by CashmoreNovember 2003Simplified conditions for RentalCalculated from the real costPurchase + maintenance (verification & repair)Adjusted annuallyCompensation100% of purchase price for first year-10%/year to minimum of 10%ResalesMarket valueSee Electronics Pool Users Guidehttp://ess.web.cern.ch/ESS/ElectronicsPoolUsersGuide.htm

  • Pool rental freezeFor experiments not wishing to dismantle during shut-downFreeze conditions18% of normal rental (~overhead costs)No use, no movements, no support

    NA49, Cosmics, DiracOffered to the LHC experiments

  • Financial status - end 2004Income: 2.2 MCHFMaintenance: 250 kCHFManpower: 80 k CHFInvestment: 1 MCHFTOTAL: 870 kCHF

    Manpower for 2005 ~200 kCHFInvestment carry-over ~670 kCHF

  • Investments

    EPTAB7

  • Migration to BAAN400First stage completeSame instance as CERN StoresWater-tight from Stores accounting, etc.Improved monthly billing procedure,No further need for database support in ESS GroupOne full-time equivalent database engineer position redeployed into technical support role

  • Electronic reservationWork by IT/AISEnsures that budget accounts are valid and provisionedEDH signature chainAllows off-line work by Pool receptionBetter preparationRequires a different approach by usersPlanning!Self-service still availableWeb site

  • The Pool > 2004

    EPTAB7

  • Where to goCritical sizeWith given resources, Pool can handle certain level of businessWe need to keep that level up to ensure best use of resources and survival of the serviceLaboratory instruments?Principal (sole?) supplier of instrumentsTo PH, to CERN?Modular electronicsCoherent product lines in NIM and VMEModulesHousingsWhat next?Power suppliesHVLV

    EPTAB7

  • Purchases of scopes

    EPTAB7

  • Income > 2005Guesstimate - Best case? Assumes that some experiments will keep equipment in place at overhead rate of 18%Guess! Resumption of LHC test activity at 2004 levels, no fixed target and other users continuing at 2004 levelsOverhead 13%Overhead 19%Overhead 20%

    EPTAB7

  • Electronics Pool Technical Advisory BoardMandateEPTAB advises the ESS Group Leader on the technical profile of the Electronics Pool (types and mix of equipment) and on the choice of individual items of equipment FutureGiven the demise of the EAB, Dieter Schlatter has asked me to proposed a broader mandate for a committee to cover the mandate of EPTAB and that part of the EAB mandate concerned with the Pool. Also to include representatives of the wider user community (CERN users)

    EPTAB7

  • EPTABMembers act Ad personumAs representatives of the experimentsAs representatives of their groups

    Thank you for your helpWe will need more of your time to best define investments
