Friday, October 25, 2:00 PM - Special ASD Seminar
NSCL Lecture Hall

Abstract: Patrick Hurh, Mechanical Support Department Head at Fermilab's Accelerator Division, recounts several harrowing instances of crisis during project installation and experiment operations. Each of these cases unexpectedly became the "critical path" and threatened to de-rail the project or experiment. The resulting technical and managerial lessons learned will be revealed and discussed.
