The mission operations of LISA Pathfinder will focus on extracting the maximum science from the mission. In order to do that, the operational timeline must remain flexible and be able to adapt to new information about the system as it comes in. At the end of the science operations phase, the goal is to have optimised the system to produce the quietest free-fall of the test-masses possible, as well as to have built up a comprehensive noise model of the system to allow robust performance projections of future LISA-like missions. This talk will discuss some of the details of the operational scenarios and talk about the approach to optimising performance and establishing a system noise budget.
