Project: IceCube Neutrino Detector Array
Project Overview:
The University of Wisconsin’s IceCube Project is a next-generation subatomic particle detector designed to be implanted deep in ice in the South Pole. The system will measure and chart the path of neutrinos, the smallest particles of matter, as they pass from space through the earth. Made up of 4,800 glass optical modules on 80 strings buried .8 to 1.5 miles below the ice, the Ice Cube telescope will effectively convert a cubic kilometer of Antarctic ice into the world’s largest scientific instrument.

Clients Challenge:
After the initial award grant, the IceCube leadership needed an expert team to establish a greenfield project management control system.

Triad’s Solution:
Triad was retained for the development and operation of the cost/schedule integrated master plan.

Result:
The PMCS has been successfully implemented, and is managed by Triad project managers. The system has already proven successful by its early detection of potential cost overruns, which were able to be avoided.
