Book Description :

In the mid-1970s, the United States government and its citizens demanded that all utility organizations which owned nuclear power plants become more responsible for the construction and operation of these facilities, a demand created from more than twenty years of poor nuclear industry performance, a demand that led to more complex and unpredictable nuclear power plant licensing, designing, building, and managing processes. This article examines the management strategies that utility companies have implemented to more effectively and efficiently design, build, and operate their nuclear power plants. In doing to, it explains the history of nuclear power plant operation in the United States, describing the project management approach utility companies adopted to better manage operational risks and to effectively comply with government regulations. It then details a five-strategy organizational framework for managing large construction projects, a framework developed from the results of a mid-1970s study of large construction projects. It also examines five organizational structures: functional management, functional matrix, balance matrix, project matrix, and project team. It identifies the 12 factors that influence the way companies select management structures; it also discusses the organizational impact of balancing the strategy and structure relationship.

Book Description :

This publication is intended to encourage the development and improvement of decommissioning planning and management techniques with the focus on organizational aspects, reduce the duplication of efforts by different parties by transfer of experience and know-how, and provide useful results for those Member States planning or implementing decommissioning projects. In general it can be stated that any decommissioning project can be completed without any deleterious effects on the safety of the workforce and the public or any identifiable impact on the environment. However, timeliness and cost-effectiveness are not always optimal. It has been noted on several occasions that the major weakness in decommissionig projects (as well as in other industrial projects) is often not the lack of technologies, but rather poor planning and management. This publication intends to stimulate awareness of the need for early and efficient planning and to foster developments in management and organization in association with planned or ongoing decommissioning projects. A companion report on Organization and Management for Decommissioning of Large Reports Series No. 399, which provides generic guidance on organizational and management aspects. This TECDOC is complementary to the existing report in that it highlights practical experience--"in particular, typical issues, evidence of poor management, undue delays, and lack of timely funding-and distils lessons learned from this experience.

Book Description :

Nuclear power is in danger of fading away as a signicant source of energy supply in some parts of the world unless it becomes more competitive. The cost of nuclear energy largely depends on capital cost because nuclear power plants are very expensive to design and build and relatively cheap to operate. The capital cost of nuclear power plants is literally dominated by factors other than those of physical equipment, such as project preparation, site preparation, engineering, planning, installation, and management. Interestingly, project planning, monitoring, execution and management is where too often the nuclear industry has failed in the past. As of 2014, the average time and cost overrun for nuclear projects worldwide are 64% and 117.3%, respectively. There is evidence showing that there is something that we fundamentally do not understand (or represent) in project planning and management. This work is based on the premise that nuclear projects are megaprojects. As such, they are complex systems that are (1) constantly changing, (2) tightly coupled, (3) governed by feedback, (4) non-linear, (5) history-dependent, (6) self-organizing, (7) adaptive, (8) characterized by tradeoffs, (9) counter intuitive, (10) policy resistant. Hence, traditional project management methods alone are insufficient. An alternative approach to reduce cost and uncertainties of nuclear projects is to turn them into more standard projects, in terms of scope, complexity and capital at risk. For example, the nuclear industry is pursuing the development of micro-reactors, a type of plug- and-play nuclear batteries that would be two orders of magnitude smaller in physical size, wholly manufactured and fueled in a factory, and transported to the site within standard-size freight containers, requiring minimal site excavation and preparation. This work develops an improved framework for managing megaprojects, estimating their value, and making project/design decisions involving numerous stakeholders, multiple competing objectives, and substantial uncertainty. The framework is built on two pillars: a System Dynamics (SD) model and a probabilistic Discounted Cash Flow (DCF) model. The former focuses on design and construction, while the latter focuses on operations. These two models are consistent with each other and they are run sequentially. To demonstrate its feasibility and appreciate its benefits, the SD-DCF approach is applied to a real-world case study, e.g. an ongoing project in North America based on a marine nuclear power plant entirely built in a shipyard and towed to the site upon completion. A multi-objective decision making problem is framed to illustrate the importance of a solid decision management process in megaprojects. 270 dierent projects are derived from the combination of six high-level design/project choices: plant's capacity, deployment concept, flexibility, overlap between design and construction, level of efforts spent on FEED, size and availability of management team. The projects are simulated using the SD and DCF models, represented on trade spaces and finally evaluated against success objectives to derive general policy insights. This framework represents a synthesis of management methods that was not practically avail- able before. This work documents the development of the models, it shows why they should be used, it applies them to an actual case study hence providing a real-world application, and it makes the method credible, publicly available and convenient to adopt.

Book Description :

This publication provides a holistic approach to environmental protection in new nuclear power programs. It describes the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) process, the subsequent utilization of the EIA, and the necessary infrastructure for such processes. The presumption is that a Member State embarking on such a program already has an environmental regulatory framework in place, which may not be developed for nuclear power but for industrial projects, therefore the emphasis is on the environmental aspects that are unique to a nuclear power plant project. The publication is addressed to senior managers, project managers or coordinators and technical specialists of government authorities and agencies, including the regulatory body, operating organizations and supporting industries and other organizations involved in environmental issues.

Book Description :

To many program, project, or construction managers, a complex project seems to be a labyrinth with many hidden dangers. This book is a guide through that labyrinth. It explains best practices and provides insight so they cannot only identify hidden dangers but also effectively manage the construction process to either mitigate or eliminate these risks. The book presents a systems-based approach to construction project management that can facilitate a greater understanding of the complexity inherent in large construction projects and how that complexity can be effectively managed. The systems approach permits the onsite construction project manager to take a complex construction project, break it down into manageable pieces, and ensure that all systems are in alignment with the original goal of the project. This approach combines industrial engineering, project management, and finance into a unified approach for effective management of complex construction projects, ranging from a power plant to a highway project. The book explains how to manage construction projects successfully through an approach based on the three following systems: Project Management System Work Management System Quality Management System The problem with complex programs and projects is that many managers are only equipped with a knowledge of project management. A system for construction is a collection of many processes effectively working together to produce a specific deliverable, which is usually defined in the program or project’s contract. This system has a series of specific inputs and outputs, which are what the customer expects from the company or companies performing the work. This book develops checklists based on these inputs and outputs, which managers can use when first arriving onsite, and provides a "nuts and bolts" approach for managing a complex construction project onsite. The author shares valuable lessons learned during a career of more than thirty years of working on various construction sites around the world. These lessons learned are filled with valuable information to aid readers become more effective as a program, project, or construction manager of complex construction projects.

Book Description :

A report today by the National Audit Office highlights the considerable challenge faced by the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority in taking forward the clean-up of Sellafield, the UK's largest and most hazardous nuclear site. To date the performance of some of the major projects at Sellafield has been poor. The Authority inherited a legacy of poor planning and neglect over several decades when it took ownership of Sellafield in April 2005. The Authority achieved an important milestone in May 2011 when it approved a more robust lifetime plan for the clean-up of Sellafield site by 2120. The improved lifetime plan contributed to an increase in the Authority's provision for decommissioning the site to £67 billion (undiscounted) as at March 2012, up from £47 billion as at March 2009. Significant uncertainties and scheduling risks remain, which the authority is working to understand and address. For example, there is considerable uncertainty over the time required and cost of completing facilities to treat and store highly radioactive material held in deteriorating legacy ponds and silos. Today's report concluded that it is too early to judge whether the appointment of Nuclear Management Partners Limited as the parent body of Sellafield is delivering value for money.
