Title: Management Prestart Review Phase 1 for the NIF Optics Assembly Building (OAB)

Abstract

A Management Prestart Review (MPR) for the National Ignition Facility (NIF) Optics Assembly Building (OAB) was conducted from June, 2000, through October, 2000. This review was performed to determine readiness of the facility and management to transfer the facility from the construction to the commissioning and operations phase. This review process provides assurance that the appropriate line management is in place to effect the turnover. Completion and acceptance of this report constitutes a turnover of facility and equipment operational responsibility from the Beampath Infrastructure System Construction organization to the Assembly Installation and Refurbishment Operations (assembly equipment installation/activation and mechanical cleaning operations) and the Beampath Infrastructure System (BIS) Commissioning and Operations Organizations (conventional facility operations). The OAB MPR provides to the NIF Project Manager an independent, systematic assessment of: (1) Readiness of line management for the turnover to take place, (2) Completeness of the equipment and facility installation of the OAB, (3) Readiness of personnel to operate within the facility, and (4) Implementation and efficacy of key management control processes and procedures. The MPR process assures that the technical, cost, and schedule risk associated with the installation/activation of OAB special equipment, mechanical cleaning, and conventional facility operations within the OAB aremore » evaluated and are acceptable. Specifically, the scope of the review addresses technical and operational attributes of the equipment and facility systems that have been determined to have significant project risk. This report implements the LLNL requirement that MPRs shall be conducted before all new facilities are brought into operation, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) ES&H Manual (M-010), Section 2.2.5, Pre-Start Reviews. The MPR process is an essential part of the ISM work authorization and feedback process. This report documents this process as it pertains to the readiness to install and activate OAB special equipment, perform mechanical cleaning operations, and operate the conventional facility aspects of the OAB. This review found no deficiencies in the status of the facility and equipment, or the operational readiness that would preclude the turnover process; the operational organizations are equipped to assume management of the facilities. The line management responsibilities for the continued operations in OAB are described in Section 3 of this report. The environmental, safety and health requirements for the sustained commissioning and operations are discussed in Section 4. At the same time, the review found 22 elements that need to be addressed in a timely and expeditious manner. These findings are summarized in Section 5 of this report. The Problem Identification and Correction System (PICS) will be used to track these items to closure. The MPR Committee recommends management responsibilities of the OAB be assumed and authorized to the BIS Commissioning and Operations, and the Assembly and Refurbishment organizations according to the management plan described in Section 4.« less
