Nuclear operators face numerous challenges in completing online maintenance, the most significant and avoidable of which is the lack of material availability. The model most commonly adopted by generators has been loosely based on a 13 week planning cycle, supplemented by aLongRangecycle plan intended to capture long-lead materials. Unfortunately this model continues to fail in providing 100% material availability.

This session will discuss a more robust planning model, one which will provide consistent, predictable material availability in support of on-line maintenance activities, while ensuring suppliers have the information required to effectively plan production efforts at reasonable cost.
