Comanche Peak Nuclear Power Plant Human Performance: Observation Principles of Excellence Karen Jones, Human Performance Coordinator Luminant / Comanche Peak Matt Sacks, DevonWay / Product Manager
Organized Observation Program at Comanche Peak Like most other companies, at Comanche Peak weve been in reaction mode for complying with observation requirements. Now for the first time, were able to use the observation process to close process gaps, improve plant performance and demonstrate INPO compliance. Modeled observation trend codes to be in line with the INPO performance model.

The way things were… Isolated from CAP and OE Limited trending capabilities On-going challenge to measure performance against expectations Scorecards and reports were difficult to change No formal review process or tools to manage quality Improvement of the Observation program was challenging due to system limitations.
Taking Control of Observation Program Connecting Observations with CAP and OE Managing observation blitzes and expectations Adding oversight groups and management review Trend coding driving opportunities for improvement Prescribing observations around plant focus areas Consistent approach to trending of observation behaviors and comment fields.
No longer isolated from CAP and OE CRs and OE unified with observations under the same platform. CR and OE immediately available as reference to improve observation quality Ability for managers to send observations back to observers to initiate CR as appropriate.
Improved Trending Capabilities All trending of comments were manual before ObservationWay Trending at the behavior level and at the observation level Ability to trend specific comments and capture insights into areas in need of improvement.
Dynamic review process Option to add and change oversight groups on specific scorecards based on need Extend review process to selectively include senior managers in observation review by scorecard Plans to route observations to reviewers based on observation score Allows management a more active role in the observation process by routing observa- tions to appropriate managers in real time. Enforce quality - Observation quality questions can be setup to ensure management expectations are being met. All observation communication now managed inside ObservationWay by routing observation tasks or collaborating online.
Ability to measure performance against expectations Extensive options for prescribing observations to departments, teams, or individuals Opportunity to conduct focused observations in the form of blitzes - structured management observation programs, identified department focus areas.
System limitation are no longer an issue Now we have the ability to continuously improve the program and the program results due to the ease and extensive administration options within the new Observation program. Rapid deployment example: We documented an existing manual process for capturing improvement opportunities and new process was added to our Observation program the next day – ready for production. Changes to scorecards and introducing new reports are easy.
