Book Description :

In addition to the nuclear power industry, the nuclear field has extensive projects and activities in the areas of research reactors, medical isotope production, decommissioning, and remediation of contaminated sites. Managing nuclear projects focuses on the management aspects of nuclear projects in a wide range of areas with emphasis on process, requirements, and lessons learned. Part one provides a general overview of the nuclear industry including basic principles for managing nuclear projects, nuclear safety culture, management of worker risk, training, and management of complex projects. Part two focuses on managing reactor projects with discussion on a variety of topics including management of research reactor projects, medical radioisotope production, power reactor modifications, power uprates, outage management, and management of nuclear-related R&D. Chapters in part three highlight the areas of radioactive waste and spent fuel management, reactor decommissioning, and remediation of radioactively contaminated sites. Finally, part four explores regulation, guidance and emergency management in the nuclear industry. Chapters discuss quality assurance and auditing programs, licensing procedures for nuclear installations, emergency preparedness, management of nuclear crises, and international nuclear cooperation. With its distinguished editor and contributors, Managing Nuclear Projects is a valuable resource for project managers, plant managers, engineers, regulators, training professionals, consultants, and academics. Examines the basic principles of managing nuclear projects focussing on processes and requirements Discusses the management of reactor projects Explores regulation, guidance and emergency management in the nuclear industry

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 :

This volume, a joint project of the Brookings Institution and Harvard University's Center for Science and International Affairs, analyzes the dynamics of nuclear operations and the vital policy problems they pose. Twenty-two experts, ranging from a former commander in chief of the Strategic Air Command to an expert in radar technology, discuss peace-time safety and control of nuclear weapons worldwide; and the means for terminating nuclear war before it escalates to all-out exchanges. They also describe command posts, warning sensors, communication technologies, locking devices to prevent unauthorized explosion of nuclear weapons, selection of nuclear targets, and the exercise of political authority over nuclear operations.

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.
