NUTEMA: a tool for supervising nuclear technology and for the transfer of knowledge
In this paper is presented NUTEMA (Nuclear Power Plant Technology Management System) an IT innovative system dealing with the nuclear technology. The overall goal is to offer a framework capable to present in one room whatever is concerned with a Nuclear Power Plant (NPP) unit implementing together a multilevel and multi–view user access according to enterprise architecture models. The NUTEMA system assembles all together the competences needed for the construction, the design, the management of an NPP, and allows the training of nuclear industry staff and stakeholders. The concept of IAEA Design Authority has been the starting idea at the base of the NUTEMA design. It is primarily devoted to utilities, but any industry like regulatory authorities and research institutes concerned with nuclear technology can take benefits from its use.
