    Considering the ISIS muon target as a reference, Geant4
    simulations have been performed to optimise the target parameters
    with respect to muon and pion yield. Previous
    studies suggested that the muon production can be optimised
    by using a thin graphite slab target with an incident
    proton energy significantly lower than initially considered.
    The current paper discusses a possible target design fully
    optimised for MuSR studies.
