EPICS Spring 2015 Week 8 Announcements (March 2 – 6, 2015)

  1. Great job with Design Reviews last week! We received a number of positive feedback from the reviewers.

  2. Design Review follow-up: Please review the Design Review evaluation forms and summarized the feedback. It is especially important to document any items that were identified as critical, and how you are addressing those. A summary form is available to help organize and track these items if you don’t already have a mechanism to do this.
