​A preliminary list of requirements on the electronics can be found  in the following DocDB document: 6419​​​ (cert link) (last updated on 9-Feb-18)​​​.​ This document lists the requirements on the performance of the Cold Electronics; it could be improved by establishing more clear links between the performance of the electronics in the final detector and the physics reach of the DUNE Experiment.​

Deliverables, Schedule​, and Milestones​​​​​

​A preliminary Work Breakdown Structure that contains an initial set of deliverables in the WBS dictionary is available in the following DocDB document: 5612​ (cert link) (last updated on 12-Mar-18)​​​. Two almost equivalent documents are available there. One is the WBS following the structure of the DUNE International Project (that is organized in a time-ordered way, with an initial R&D, design and engeneering phase, followed by a production setup phase, a production phase, and then the integration and installation phases, with physics and simulation having its own substructure), the other one follows the DOE organization where, to avoid increasing the number of chargeable task codes, the project is organized in management, components inside the cryostat, components outside the cryostat, test facilities, and software. The two documents are cross-referenced to ensure their compatibility. A Primavera P6 schedule with its milestone will be prepared starting in April 2018. A preliminary high level schedule and list of milestones will be made available in time for the DUNE RRB meeting of April 2018.


​​The strategy of the Cold Electronics consortium for meeting the milestones described above is outlined in the following DocDB document: 6658​ (cert link) (last updated on 5-Feb-18)​​​. Two documents are available there. A first one (already presented at the LBNC meeting of October 2017) outlines the plans for the ASICs development, the second one includes the strategy for performing measurements on the various types of ASICs and deciding which development path(s) to pursue until the Technical design report.​ The decision itself will be based (at the beginning) using the criteria discussed in the following DocDB document:​​ 7156 (cert link) (last updated on 14-Feb-18)​​​. Later we will include in the decision process reliability consideration, following the advice of the working group proposed in the following DocDB document: 7216 (cert link) (last updated on 12-Feb-18)​​​.

​Interfaces between the Single Phase Far Detector TPC Cold Electronics consortium and other DUNE consortia​

​​The following documents describe the interfaces between the CE consortium and other consortia. All these documents are available from DocDB (if you have problems accessing them go to DocDB and enter the document number (there are two ways of accessing DocDB, via password or via certificate, and we implement only one of them here):

The following document describes the risks (so far only threats, in the future we should also describe opportunities) for the CE consortium. For each risk we present a list of possible mitigating action to be taken to minimize its occurence, as well as a list of the corrective actions to be taken after the risk is realized. This document is generated starting from the risk registry for the DOE project that also includes a discussion of the impacts in terms of costs and schedule delay. The score assigned in this document to each individual risk is based on the information available in the DOE risk registry and ranges from 1 (Very Low) to 4 (High).
