  TRIUMF's ISAC is an ISOL-type RIB facility. RIB are produced in direct reactions of 480–500 MeV protons from TRIUMF's main cyclotron on thick targets in one of two production target stations. Like other such facilities, ISAC is only capable of serving a single RIB user at any given time, though simultaneous delivery of stable and radioactive beams to different experimental areas is possible. With the construction of ARIEL, the Advanced Rare-IsotopE Laboratory, ISAC will gain a second production front end. RIB will be produced by photofission on actinide targets using electrons from a new superconducting electron linac. This will give ISAC the ability to serve two RIB experiments concurrently with beams produced by different reaction mechanisms in separate target areas (with delivery of a third, stable, beam still possible). The shift from single-user to multi-user RIB operation will introduce significant new complexity to beam delivery, requiring new tools and techniques for beam time to be used efficiently. A first look at the potential operational requirements of a multi-user RIB facility will be discussed.
