Phase B1 Kick-Off PLATO Design Consolidation Review (PDCR) PLATO B1 data package delivery for SRR PLATO System Requirements Review (SRR) Mission Adoption & IPC approval Kick-off Phase B2/C/D PLATO Launch

Main Phase B1 Preparation Activities Preparation B1 Kick-Off Data Package

   Establish an updated Specification Tree to define the interrelation between the single PLATO P/L component specifications  Basis for the traceability of single requirements and interface management Definition of all required documents for the B1 Kick-Off  Comparison with existing documentation to identify necessary inputs Completion / annotation of existing specifications  Utilization as applicable documents for the B1 work upon PDCR

Phase B1

• • •

1 st P/L Meeting has been on 06./07.05.2014

– Bring P/L consortium together – Start to resume P/L teams

Phase B1 KO is scheduled for 16./17.07.2014

– Official Start of Phase B1 – All work packages are already defined – Tasks to be done between KO and 2 nd Meeting will be defined P/L Consortium

2 nd P/L Meeting proposed Fall 2014

– All specifications and belonging annotations/supplements are available as basis for the B1 development work

PLATO Phase B1 Schedule



Overview of major Phase B1 Deliverables Date Deliverables

2nd P/L Meeting 16.07.14


* Drafts of TOU Requirements Specification, Camera Development & Verification Plan, List of Deliverables, * First issue of above documents PM1 PM2 PDCR delivery PM3 PM4 PM5 SRR delivery 18.11.14







Progress report + specified deliverables Progress report + specified deliverables Progress report + specified deliverables Progress report + specified deliverables Progress report + specified deliverables Progress report + specified deliverables Camera Reports, models, Camera URDs and I/F documents  * drafts to be prepared by KT  Specified deliverables defined in the List of Deliverables, which may include Camera Reports (design, budgets, performance, straylight, thermal, structural, risk assessment), MAIV plan, Management Plan, mathematical models

Communication between TOU team and KT

  List of all deliverables to be defined and finalised by 2 nd P/L Meeting PMs to be held at TOU site or by Webex. Required documents and Progress Reports including status of AIs to be delivered at least five working days before the meeting   Regular bi-weekly telecons between TOU lead team and KT:  brief discussion of working progress, identified problems, needed inputs etc  the traceability of single requirements and interface management Meeting when necessary with other Camera/Payload/PLATO teams by Webex (organised by KT). For critical topics, like I/F discussions, face to face meeting are preferable
