1 A Brief History of CM in the Nuclear Industry and the CMBG Presented By: John Parler CMBG Steering Committee

2 A Brief History of CM in the Nuclear Industry Configuration Management in military and aerospace industry geared towards product conformance to facilitate interchangeability of parts while still satisfying the overall design requirements MIL-STD-973 (1992), ”Configuration Management” (later replaced by ANSI/EIA-649-1998)

3 DOE STD 1073-93 “Configuration Management” Applicable to DOE nuclear facilities in the operational phase. DOE-STD-1073 was updated in 2003 A Brief History of CM in the Nuclear Industry

4 Nuclear plants in mid 60’s to early 80’s typically designed by AEs under contract Final design documents typically turned over to the utility at the end of construction Little knowledge transfer of design info to utility engineering organization Utilities struggled to deal with long term design maintenance and related document upkeep A Brief History of CM in the Nuclear Industry

5 Early indicators that the nuclear plant design basis knowledge was becoming disconnected from the physical plant IE Bulletin 79-14 uncovered calculation discrepancies undocumented modifications document discrepancies as-built problems A Brief History of CM in the Nuclear Industry

6 Salem ATWS event (1983) Generic implications identified in NUREG-1000 and NRC Generic Letter 83-28 compliance with vendor recommendations part and procurement issues vendor manual controls Industry initiatives by INPO, NUMARC and EPRI to provide guidance and consistency A Brief History of CM in the Nuclear Industry

7 Davis Besse Loss of Feedwater event (1985) Led to NRC Safety System Functional Inspections (SSFIs) and NUREG-1154 difficulties maintaining operational readiness of safety systems lack of understanding design bases Voluntary design basis reconstitution, DBDs and self- evaluation NUREG-1397, NUMARC 90-012, INPO 87-006 and NUREG/CR-5147 A Brief History of CM in the Nuclear Industry

8 Browns Ferry (1985) Browns Ferry fire in Unit 1 (1975) led to changes in NRC standards for Fire Protection All three Browns Ferry units shut down voluntarily in March 1985 due to CM related problems - containment isolation testing (Unit 1), reactor water level instrumentation (Unit 2) Unit 1 restarted in May 2007 after 22 year shutdown A Brief History of CM in the Nuclear Industry

9 NRC specialized SSFIs for safety systems Electrical Systems (EDSFI) Service Water Systems (SWOPI) SECY-92-193: intent to issue generic letter to require utilities to address how they were dealing with the problems - withdrawn A Brief History of CM in the Nuclear Industry

10 Nuclear Information and Records Management Association (NIRMA) CM Committee developed solution control of technical information by engineering and operations personnel mature records management and document control process PP02-1994 “Position Paper on Configuration Management Program” A Brief History of CM in the Nuclear Industry

11 First Nuclear CM benchmarking conference hosted by PPL Susquehanna in Fall 1994 Forum to exchange information on CM processes and methods at work in the industry 17 US utilities were represented Each utility made presentation about their CM program No motivational speeches No sales promotions by service providers A Brief History of CM in the Nuclear Industry

12 The CMBG Idea Grows Interest from industry to hold another similar conference Second conference hosted by Ontario Hydro in 1995 Drafted plans for continuing organization - approved in 1996 Adopted name: Configuration Management Benchmarking Group Formed Steering Committee Wrote Mission Statement “…forum for peer-level information sharing…” Defined ground rules for holding future conferences

13 CMBG is not affiliated with any other single organization Independent of regulatory and oversight agencies Conference costs are paid by registration fees and supplemented by host utility Web site developed Activities limited to information exchange Written Principles and Practices guide our endeavors.

15 CMBG Accomplishments Annual Conferences Participation in development of industry documents (e.g.; ANSI-NIRMA CM 1.0-2000, INPO AP-929, INPO AP-932) Web Site (www.cmbg.org) CMBG history Conferences (proceedings from all previous conferences and info on upcoming conference) Steering Committee members IAEA Activities CM Links Papers and publications CMBG Google Group

16 NIRMA TG19-1996 “ Configuration Management of Nuclear Facilities” Built on the NIRMA PP-02 document Presented elements and attributes that facilities needed to establish of a good CM program. Later became basis for ANSI/NIRMA CM-1.0-2000 Criteria Program management Design requirements Information Control Change control Assessment Training A Brief History of CM in the Nuclear Industry

17 INPO AP-929 (1998) “Configuration Control Process Description” Focused on changes to plant configuration A Brief History of CM in the Nuclear Industry

18 CMBG Contributions to Industry CM Guidance Documents ANSI/NIRMA CM 1.0 -2000 “ Configuration Management of Nuclear Facilities” Based on NIRMA TG-19 CMBG members participated in development, review and issuance. Drafts reviewed at CMBG conferences Criteria Program management Design requirements Information Control Change control Assessment Training

19 2002 CMBG Conference - initiative to reach agreement between INPO and NEI documents NEI CM Community of Practice (2002) CM Process and PI’s included in NEI Standard Nuclear Performance Model (2003) CMBG Contributions to Industry CM Guidance Documents

20 IAEA TECDOC-1335 (2003) "Configuration Management in Nuclear Power Plants“ Contained elements of INPO AP-929 and ANSI/NIRMA CM-1.0 Criteria Program management Design requirements Information Control Change control Assessment Training CMBG Contributions to Industry CM Guidance Documents

21 INPO - Margin Management (2003) INPO reorganization emphasized, “Evaluating Configuration and Margin Management” Greater than design basis range Operating Point Limit Normal Operating Point Design or Tech Spec Basis Limit Functional/Design Failure Allowed operating range Analyzed transient range Operating margin Design margin ( Design allows operation in the transient range. However operating restrictions consistent with the design, such as the magnitude and frequency of excursions into this range apply) ( The allowed operating range provides the normal margins operators use without violating setpoints ) ( This is a prohibited range of operation and represents the additional conservative margin to account for uncertainties in design and construction ) A Brief History of CM in the Nuclear Industry

22 INPO 03-04 (November 2003) “Performance Objectives and Criteria” Configuration Management CM.1Maintaining Margins Consistent with Design Requirements CM.2Operational Configuration Control CM.3Design Change Processes CM.4Conduct of Engineering CM.5Reactor Engineering and Fuel Management A Brief History of CM in the Nuclear Industry

28 What’s next?

29 The Next Big Thing in Nuclear CM We need your help in identifying the CM issues important to our Nuclear Station Health CM for new plants CMBG is a forum for sharing lessons learned from the current generation of operating plants in developing CM controls/ processes for the next generation of the nuclear fleet YOUR CMBG will continue to provide a forum for industry benchmarking on CM issues
