Card Set Information
Four key areas of engineering PI's
1. Program Personnel
2. Program Infrastructure
3. Program Implementation
4. Equipment/Related Plant Performance
Example of Program Personnel Metric
Staff qualification and Experience, Owner Availability
Example of Program Infrastructure Metric
Program Self-Assessment, Program Benchmark, Document/Database Health
Example of Program Implementation Metric
OE, Human Performance Errors
Example of Equipment/Related Plant Performance Metric
Generation Health, Margins, Unplanned LCO’s
How Pi's are graded
key area quality points
: 18 - <21
: 15 - <18
Where can you find Guidance on developing/assessing/implementing PI metrics?
Appendix A of Engineering Programs Management and Health Reporting Procedure.
What is the purpose of the program/system health reports and when must these be made?
1. Gives leaders a more detailed look than what is in the PI’s
2. Made for each engineering program whose overall PI is RED or YELLOW
Where can you find Guidance on developing/assessing/implementing System Health Report metrics?
Appendix C of Engineering Programs Management and Health Reporting Procedure.
What information does the System/Program Health Reports include?
a. Header Block - Program Owner, Section Leader, Colors from Past 4 Quarters, Dates
b. Summary of Program Status
c. Summary of 4 Key areas of PIs
d. Relevant Trending
e. Exceptions to Grading Criteria
f. Additional Information
Structure of the programs department at PV?
Types of NDE
Purpose of VT

Purpose of S
: Performed on nonporous materials to detect discontinuities which are open to the surface
: Performed on ferromagnetic materials to detect surface discontinuities
: Heat Exchangers: Surface Flaws
Purpose of VOL
UT: Detect flaws in material
: Inclusions, slag
Where are the program requirements and what drives each program?
Program Requirements: ISI Program Manual and the Inspection/Test/Program Procedure
-Regulation - ASME, ANSI, NRC, EPRI
-Best Practices - OE, INPO, Self-Assessment, Benchmarking
