Poster Strategies for Continuous Reliable Operations 11- Poster Session

Speaker

Description

The Canadian Light Source had first light in 2004 and has been shining since then. Achieving high operational reliability and availability is done through periodic monitoring of benchmark statistics and having a responsive organizational structure that can push these statistics in the right direction. Reliability is further enhanced through mitigating the risk of infrastructure failures and priority management. Here we report our historical operation statistics and provide some catastrophic highlights that have motivated risk mitigation. ​
