The success of a nuclear power program is inherently linked to establishing a strong configuration management program at the outset of the project.  The configuration management program ensures that the design of the facility is controlled, that changes to the facility are made only when there is adequate surety that they adequately protect the health and safety of the public, and that all procedures, programs, and administrative controls for the facility are completely consistent with the physical configuration of the facility. 

ENERCON has provided extensive support to commercial nuclear power plants in the United States in recovering effective configuration control of facilities and ensuring that plants conform to their design and licensing bases.  This has included support for extensive design basis reconstitution programs, as well as implementing new processes to enhance control over the integrity of governing licensing documents such as the plant’s Final Safety Analysis Report and Plant Technical Specifications.

ENERCON has helped clients improve their overall configuration management programs and processes.  The company’s extensive work with over 85 nuclear power plants in the United States provides detailed insights into the elements of an effective program, and strategies, policies, and procedures that can provide effective configuration control.
