The EM-1 ESM is receiving its finishing touches:

In @AirbusSpace, Bremen, 🇩🇪 the last radiator is being installed on @NASA_Orion's European Service Module, marking the completion of the module integration.

Next major step in the big general picture is:
MLI blankets and MMOD panels followed by solar array wing and antennas integration (Similar but with differences to ATV).
Later:
Testing and then if the forward and aft adaptors are installed they can encapsulate the SM because fuelling and gasses and water is via the bottom. Then Orion Mate and full encapsulation.

I'm glad for the progress.  Hopefully between EM-1 and EM-2 both NASA and ESA will figure out how to streamline the process a little, especially since the big point for EM-1 is to test fly Orion/SLS.

You forgot several major steps that will happen first:
1. Ship the integrated module to the USA
2. Undo a good number of integration steps (basically: take the ESM partially apart again)
3. Make several modifications requested by NASA
4. Test modded systems and do more tests.
5. Re-integrate the ESM

Then comes your list.
