ScottMadden’s Nuclear Plant Recovery Series: Functional Area Gap Reviews



    ScottMadden, Inc., one of North America’s leading energy consulting firms, has released the third report in its Nuclear Plant Recovery insight series. This six-part series includes articles, case studies, and white papers focused on leading practices in nuclear plant recovery.

    Good nuclear plant performance depends in large part on how well each of the individual functional areas are performing (operations, maintenance, engineering, etc.). When all functions are performing well, the plant will perform well. Good nuclear operators have learned that it is better to identify and address performance declines in individual functional areas early before they lead to more systemic performance declines. In addition, a focus on functional area improvement may be an important strategy as part of an overall plant improvement effort. The best fleets and plants have created a formal approach to conduct a functional area gap review to identify gaps in functional area performance and correct course.

    This complimentary report answers some of the initial questions you may have as you start to think about a functional area gap review.

    “We’ve helped our clients execute multiple functional area reviews across multiple areas and helped build a sustainable process that can be easily repeated if needed in the future,” said Ed Baker, partner and nuclear and gas practice co-lead at ScottMadden.

    “We’ve seen from our experience that functional area reviews provide tremendous value to a station in recovery through the collaborative development of an improvement plan to address their performance gaps between corporate and the station personnel,” added Sean Lawrie, partner and nuclear practice co-lead at ScottMadden.
