Title: Connecting LWRS Human Factor Engineering R&D to NUREG-0711 Elements and Modification Activities in Nuclear Power Plants

Abstract

This Report documents the connection between DOE INL LWRS HFE R&D activities and the technical content of NUREG-0711 Results Summary Reports. Since the current and most recent LWRS HFE activities are associated with modernization and modification of nuclear power electric generating stations, this Report will limit its scope to these topics. NUREG-0711 Results Summary Reports content is shared with US nuclear generating stations by INL HFE staff through HFE Technical Reports to identify potential HEDs with planned upgrades. With such information, utilities have confidence that their upgraded HMIs, operating procedures, conduct of operations, and training with the upgraded systems will ensure their continued safe control of the nuclear plant. The utilities use the HFE Technical Reports as basis documents in their licensing processes used to modify the plant (LAR or 10CFR50.59). For plant modifications, LWRS HFE R&D activities commence as early as an agreement is reached between the utility and the LWRS Program staff. The multiple interfaces usually result in the two organizations meeting at INL, at the utility’s site, and at the vendor’s facility. Since there generally is a shortage of utility based HFE experience, INL HFE staff supports the HFE related utility modernization & modification (obsolescence) activities whenevermore » requested.« less
