National Synchrotron Light Source II (NSLS II)

National Synchrotron  Light Source II (NSLS II)

Funded by: U.S Department of Energy

The National Synchrotron Light Source II (NSLS.II) at Brookhaven National Laboratory will be an advanced, highly optimized, third generation, medium energy storage ring. The NSLS-11 will replace the current NSLS facility, which will be 30 years old when the proposed NSLS-11 becomes operational. The X-ray brightness and the flux of the NSLS-11 will be world leading, exceeding that of any other synchrotron light source currently existing or under construction. It will be 10,000 times brighter and have 10 times higher flux than the present NSLS.

The unprecedented brightness and flux of the NSLS-11 in combination with anticipated developments in optics, detector, and computing power will lead to many advanced experimental capabilities that are not possible today. Access to these new capabilities and the unique infrastructure envisioned for this new facility will have profound impact on a wide range of scientific disciplines and initiatives and lead to many exciting discoveries in the coming decades.

Project Management Consulting & Systems Implementation

In 2006 Brookhaven National Lab hired BCF Solutions to provide cost estimating, schedule planning, and performance measurement baseline development for the NSLS-11 project. BCF worked with and supported the project’s technical team as it prepared for the DOE readiness reviews i.e. Critical Decision 1 (CD-1)and Critical Decision 2 (CD-2). BCF is also supporting the design and implementation of the Earned Value Management System (EVMS) processes and procedures. BCF is currently providing:

  • Design and Implementation of the EVMS Processes and procedures
  • Developing the Integrated Project Schedule (IPS)
  • Creation and Validation of the Project Integrated Cost and Schedule Baseline
  • Creation of Project and Business Reports for Management
  • Support of the detailed Cost Estimating
  • Development of detailed Project Planning
