DNFSB 2005-1 IMPLEMENTATION PLAN
SUBJECT: Draft Repackaging Prioritization Methodology
On August 17, 2005, the Secretary of Energy approved the DOE Implementation Plan (IP) that addresses Defense Nuclear Facilities Safety Board (DNFSB) Recommendation 2005-1, Nuclear Material Packaging. The IP establishes requirements for an independent Technical Review Board to provide a disciplined peer review of the products developed by the DOE 2005-1 Working Group.
Per the Implementation Plan, I am providing the 2005-1 Working Group draft risk prioritization methodology. Please review the attached document and provide your comments to me by December 20, 2005.
The 2005-1 working group has developed the attached draft risk prioritization methodology. The failure index portion of the methodology contains two options. One option (option 1) is more complex and detailed. The other option (option 2) is a simpler version. The TRB should specifically comment on both failure index options. Please advise me if we should pick one or the other or both or rework the options.
