MONDAY PRESENTATIONS

Welcome
Carl Bible, NEXTera Energy
Logistical information about conference activities will be provided.

Keynote

TBD, NEXTera Energy
Opening discussion on the importance of Configuration Management (CM) in the industry, future challenges and past learning experiences.

HoltecSMR
Pierre Oneid – President, Holtec


Nuclear Promise Design
Andrew Neal, SNC
Discussion on Nuclear promise task team on Design process and proposed changes

INPO Nuclear Promise
Terry Schuster, INPO
The Institute of Nuclear Plant Operations (INPO) to present an update of engineering Configuration Management activates, the Nuclear Promise and discuss Areas for Improvement (AFI’s).

Certifying the MEL for Direct Use
Eric Pace, South Carolina Electric and Gas and Robert Renuart, Independent Consultant
Presentation on the proposed requirements that must be considered to certify the MEL for direct use as design inputs for design decisions.
  The presentation will discuss requirements on the:

  • MEL Storage Medium (software controls)
  • MEL Change management requirements
  • MEL Record Requirements


ANSI/NIRMA CM 1.0 Revision
Mike Dickson, Duke Energy and Rich Giska, Independent Consultant
The 2015 CMBG   in Phoenix included a “meeting after the Conference” to kick off the next revision of the ANSI CM 1.0 Standard before the reaffirmation of the 2007 version during 2015. The reaffirmed Standard was published in July 2015.

This CMBG Working Group is leading the next revision of the Standard which should be issued  in the next few years . A proposed draft will be distributed and made available to the participants who sign up for this Breakout via direct email communication before the Conference as a “straw-man” for discussion for the next revision. One of the main decisions needed is whether or not to include “New Plant” CM concepts in the Standard.  Please come prepared to comment on the proposed draft. We want this document to be useful for Operating Nuclear Plants. CM is not just drawing updates (widely held belief of non-CM practitioners) but it includes drawing updates. This next revision should  further reveal the wider application of CM ideas into most of the daily activities at an Operating Nuclear Plant.

MONDAY BREAKOUTS

Calculation/FCI Maintenance
Facilitator – Paul Davis, PSEG Nuclear

This breakout will provide participants the opportunity to share problems, concerns, successes and failures.  Participants should come prepared to identify areas of focus that would benefit from group benchmarking.  The breakout is expected to be a broad-reaching information exchange on many issues.  Some likely areas of discussion include:

  • document prioritization
  • coordination of document update with field installation activities
  • tracking of pending changes
  • resolving conflicting documents
  • administrative change mechanisms
  • document ownership
  • maintenance of non-paper FCI

Nuclear Promise Design
Facilitator – Andrew Neal, SNC
BREAKOUT NOTES

Analog to Digital
Facilitator – Wes Frewin, NEXTera Energy
This breakout will review the design challenges in converting analog equipment to digital. Topics will include NEI guidance, cyber security, efficient methods to complete design changes, etc

Certify MEL for Direct Use
Facilitators – Eric Pace, South Carolina Electric and Gas and Robert Renuart, Independent Consultant

Presentation on the proposed requirements that must be considered to certify the MEL for direct use as design inputs for design decisions.  The presentation will discuss requirements on the:

  • MEL Storage Medium (software controls)
  • MEL Change management requirements
  • MEL Record Requirements

CM 101
Instructor – Mike Hayes, Exelon
This session is based on a 90 minute PowerPoint presentation that walks the audience through the fundamental concepts, terms, and examples of Configuration Management (CM), including design and operating margin management. The objective of this session is to engage new conference attendees in the CM process as presented at the conference and provide them with a capsule summary of the process. CM 101 should provide an understanding of how the different plant organizations contribute to and support configuration control of design, processes, and equipment. There will be a discussion of the industry three-ball process model for CM equilibrium, examples of how the equilibrium can be upset and recommended processes for restoring the equilibrium.

Proposed Revision of ANSI-NIRMA CM 1.0 following Publication of 2015 Standard
Facilitators - Mike Dickson, Duke Energy and Rich Giska, Independent Consultant

Breakout Material


TUESDAY PRESENTATIONS

NRC
Tony Gody, Director, Division of Reactor Safety, Region II
Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) to present their perspective of recent Configuration Management issues in the nuclear industry.


FENOC Electronic DCP Process
Brad Diggins, Rolls-Royce
CMIS, Configuration Management Information System, is a 3rd party software application that guides the user in preparing most of the forms that comprise a plant modification document package.  CMIS improves standardization of the final output by ensuring adherence to process requirements (built in decision trees) and removes most all administrative burden associated with filling out forms (auto populating data between multiple forms, pagination, etc.).   In addition, CMIS allows multiple users to see and work on the same modification at the same time (team approach) and allows simple cloning of previous work into a new mod.  CMIS is a glimpse of what to expect with the Nuclear Promise software intended to support the standard mod process.

NFPA 805
Basil Pagnozzi, NEXTera Energy
Presentation will provide information on NEE and other utilities transition to NFPA-805.

EQ/CDBI
Gary Schinzel, STPEG

Presentation will provide insights into the pilot NRC inspection processes for both the Component Design Basis Inspection (CDBI) and the Environmental Qualification (EQ) Program Inspection.  South Texas completed both of these inspections recently (CDBI in February 2016, EQ Program in March 2016), and will offer insights and lessons learned into the shortened inspection approach for CDBI as well as the new programmatic inspection.

Design Change Construction and Completion

Yeo Moon-Ki, Senior Manager KHNP

Procurement CDG/IEE
Al Lafleur, NEXTera Energy
Presentation will provide information on NEE Commercial Grade Dedication, Item Equivalency Evaluation, Testing Lab, etc.

TUESDAY BREAKOUTS

Potential Role of 3D Models as Part of the Design Basis Information Set
Facilitators: Laurent Perkins, Bentley Systems and Eric Helm, AREVA

Facilitated discussion on the potential role of 3D and virtual plant models to contain part or all of the design basis data with issues such as:

  • Practicality of one or more models
  • Dynamic versus static(Baselined) models
  • Applying Design Change Processes virtually and then physically
  • Impact as a nuclear record

Electronic DCP Process
Brad Diggins, Rolls-Royce
Discussion on electronic design change process.

NFPA 805

Basil Pagnozzi, NEXTera Energy
The breakout will provide information on NEE transition to NFPA-805. Goal is to determine how other plants are coping with the additional work and restrictions in work process.

Facilitators – Jon Sears, APS and Dave Epperson, Amerenue

This breakout is intended to help attendees share information about their VETIP and rules associated with maintaining documentation from vendor of key safety-related components.  This will include a review of the NRC Generic Letter 90-03.  Participants should come prepared to discuss how these issues are handled by their organization.
