Presentation Transcript


1. ISM at the Savannah River Site Department of Energy Best Practices Workshop Configuration Management Rich Salizzoni, Manager Engineering Standards Department Washington Savannah River Company September 12-13, 2006 Within the last 15 years the nuclear industry has done a good job in implementing what is known as Human Performance. And as many in here know, many of these utilities have demonstrated dramatic improvements in performance resulting from these initiatives. As a result, many facilities here at Savannah River have developed programs intended on implementing Human Performance initiatives modeled after the commercial nuclear industry. And while I don’t know this for a fact, I suspect that these facilities have seen similar improvements in performance. And so Human Performance is not new at SRS. Many of you have implemented Human Performance programs and could easily be up here presenting. What is new is the fact that the Site is ready to take Human Performance on and integrate it with many of our existing systems. The Site is ready to embrace the HP concepts and values and institutionalize them into our culture. So let me briefly explain what Human Performance is and then describe what the Site will do over the next several months… Within the last 15 years the nuclear industry has done a good job in implementing what is known as Human Performance.

3. SRS Engineering Web Page

4. SRS Engineering Manual Used to ensure compliance with legal, regulatory, and national codes/standards requirements Used sitewide to promote consistency Provides hot-linked flowcharts which virtually integrate 30+ manuals and 50+ forms Provides a graded/tailored approach to Integrated Safety Management (ISM): “The practice of specifying requirements, design attributes, and operating strategies that result in safe and successful DOE mission accomplishment at minimum cost.”

5. SRS Engineering Manual (Contd.) Table of Contents Section 1.0 - Administrative Section 1.5 - Commercial Design Section 2.0 - Nuclear Design Section 3.0 - Operations Technical Support Section 4.0 - Safety Documentation Transferred to 11Q Facility Safety Document Manual. Section 5.0 - Software Engineering & Control

6. SRS Engineering Organization Site Chief Engineer Small Programmatic Engineering Organization Chief Engineers in each Facility Report directly to Facility Management Dotted line to Site Chief Engineer Supporting “Technical Agency” Organizations Fire Protection, Radiological Technology, Safeguards & Security, Industrial Hygiene, etc.

7. SRS Engineering Processes Governed by Committee (Operating Facility Engineering representatives) Automated by Intergraph AIM/SmartPlant Foundation System Integrated with Quality Assurance, Maintenance, Operations, Nuclear Safety, D&D Organizations

8. Engineering Roles, Responsibilities, Accountabilities, and Authorities (R2A2) Quickly identifies engineering responsibilities in E7 Engineering Manual as well as other Site Manuals (Maintenance, Quality Assurance, Operations, Facility Safety Documents, D&D, etc.) Proceduralized/Controlled through E7 Manual Responsibilities Procedure

9. Engineering R2A2

10. Engineering Standard Nomenclature Database

11. Engineering Awareness Briefings

12. Engineering Navigator Tool Electronic Flowchart w/hot links Quickly identifies appropriate change control document based on graded approach categories Navigates through multiple manuals, procedures, and forms to define modification process in one place Proceduralized/Controlled through E7 Manual Overview Procedure

13. Engineering Navigator Tool (Contd.)

14. System Engineer Handbook Online access to “What a System Engineer Should Know” Quickly identifies, by subject area, where pertinent information is located Used by management as a walk-down tool to assess Engineers’ level of knowledge Can be printed as Handbook or Walk-down Checklist

15. System Engineer Handbook (Contd.)

16. Other Tools Matrix identifying additional controls for Safety Significant and Safety Class Modifications Procedure Change Request Log Waivers Engineering Automation Issues Log System Health Database

17. Other Tools (Contd.) Engineering Codes and Standards Applicability Matrix Standards Technical Committee & Board Engineering Forum SafetyNet Safety Basis Documents Linking Documents Engineering Newsletters

18. Summary Centralized through an Engineering Web Page – “web-link driven” Virtually integrates Engineering with other disciplines (Quality Assurance, Maintenance, Operations, Nuclear Safety, etc.) Provides timely support to SRS Engineering Community Recognized by Office of Independent Oversight as noteworthy to be used as positive example for the complex
