A Systems Engineering Cost Analysis Capability for Use in Assessing Nuclear Waste Management System Cost Performance

by M. R. Shay, Pacific Northwest Lab, United States,

Abstract: The System Engineering Cost Analysis (SECA) capability has been developed by the System Integration Branch of the U.S. Department of Energy's Office of Civilian Radioactive Waste Management for use in assessing the cost performance of alternative waste management system configurations. The SECA capability is designed to provide rapid cost estimates of the waste management system for a given operational scenario and to permit aggregate or detailed cost comparisons for alternative waste system configurations. This capability may be used as an integral part of the System Integration Modeling System (SIMS) or, with appropriate input defining a scenario, as a separate cost analysis model.
