Abstract: 72 out of the 74 girders on which the Diamond Storage Ring magnets are mounted, can in principle be moved along 5 degrees of freedom (sway, heave,yaw,pitch,roll) potentially allowing a thorough re-alignment of the machine. Previously conducted tests improved our knowledge of the system both in terms of simulations and comprehension of the control system we rely upon. In this report we present the results of more detailed tests which now give us full confidence in our ability to predict the results of any given set of girder moves. We also discuss possible ways of increasing the speed of the procedure, and a strategy to mitigate the impact of girder moves involving nearby beam lines.
