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

  4. A Brief History of CM in the Nuclear Industry • 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

  5. A Brief History of CM in the Nuclear Industry • 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

  6. A Brief History of CM in the Nuclear Industry 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

  7. A Brief History of CM in the Nuclear Industry 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

  8. A Brief History of CM in the Nuclear Industry 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

  9. A Brief History of CM in the Nuclear Industry • 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

  10. A Brief History of CM in the Nuclear Industry • 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”

  11. A Brief History of CM in the Nuclear Industry • First Nuclear CM benchmarking conference hosted by PPL Susquehannain Fall 1994 • Forum to exchange informationon CM processes and methodsat 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

  12. The CMBG Idea Grows • Interest from industry to hold another similar conference • Second conference hosted byOntario 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.

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