ANS is committed to advancing, fostering, and promoting the development and application of nuclear sciences and technologies to benefit society.
Explore the many uses for nuclear science and its impact on energy, the environment, healthcare, food, and more.
Nuclear Criticality Safety
NCSD provides communication among nuclear criticality safety professionals through the development of standards, the evolution of training methods and materials, the presentation of technical data and procedures, and the creation of specialty publications. In these ways, the division furthers the exchange of technical information on nuclear criticality safety with the ultimate goal of promoting the safe handling of fissionable materials outside reactors.

A day in the life of the nuclear community
The November issue of Nuclear News is focused on the individuals who make up our nuclear community.
We invited a small group of those individuals to tell us about their day-to-day work in some of the many occupations and applications of nuclear science and technology, and they responded generously. They were ready to tell us about the part they play, together with colleagues and team members, in supplying clean energy, advancing technology, protecting safety and health, and exploring fundamental science.
In these pages, we see a community that can celebrate both those workdays that record progress moving at a steady pace and the exceptional days when a goal is reached, a briefing is delivered, a contract goes through, a discovery is made, or an unforeseen challenge is overcome.
The Nuclear News staff hopes that you enjoy meeting these members of our community—or maybe get reacquainted with friends—through their words and photos.
Educational Session|Panel|Sponsored by Maintenance and Work Management
Tuesday, August 11, 2020|11:00AM–12:30PM (12:00–1:30PM EDT)
Jon Anderson (ACA Proactive)
Pete Arthur (INPO)
John McDonald (INPO)
Bryant Hearne (INPO)
Saieed Ahmed (Exelon Corporation)
This session starts with a discussion by Brandon Jenewein on the Work Management Simplification South Texas Project is implementing. This project will result in a significant reduction in personnel through “automated” Functional Equipment Group (FEG) Long-Term Scheduling. Brandon will be supported in this discussion by Jon Anderson, Tim Johnson, and Richard Jackson, three suppliers that are helping with this project. Pat Schotter from Palo Verde will discuss their TeMPO project and significant savings through automation. Topics will include Work Order Screening, Recurring Task Generation, Risk Reviews, Material Requests, etc. Scott Lappegaard from Xcel will discuss the automations they are working on including, Ready to Work Repetitive Work, including Master Tagouts, Model Work Orders, Correct Spare Parts, etc. Pete Arthur, John Mc Donald and Bryant Hearne from INPO will be supporting.
