Systems engineering management plan template - V1

Research output: Book/ReportReport

Abstract

It is evident that governance of complex projects, like NPP projects, requires systematic engineering methodologies, like Systems Engineering. The main motivation for this comes from the stringent safety requirements and the long lifetime of the nuclear power plants. The needs and requirements for NPP I&C systems can differ in many ways depending on the country despite the fact that the IAEA regulations are aimed to be applied by all the nuclear countries globally. However, using the systems engineering principles, it is possible to use the same framework in several countries to manage the whole life cycle of a nuclear power plant I&C system. Such a framework or reference model can be issued as a systems engineering management plan template. Based on the reference model, nuclear power plant organisations can develop their management systems according to the systems engineering principles. The goals for using such a reference model are assured safety and shorter development times of NPP systems, subsystems and components. This report provides an overview of the systems engineering approach, and of the state-ofthe-art regarding systems engineering planning. Furthermore, foundations for a wellstructured SEMP are laid, and the SEMP template SharePoint implementation is presented.
