    simply refer to the specific module by reference or include it as appropriate Essentially we write it once do it well and move on How many times have we rewritten material needlessly A key design criterion was that all delivery formats lecture notes handouts course packs web page information etc should all flow directly from one document source say an existing set of lecture notes with the minimum of intervention or translation Given the wide variation in formats hand written notes word processed documents drawings computer codes etc this is not a trivial requirement Another key design criterion was that there be a smooth incremental technology insertion path that is that the web augment the existing information tools and techniques rather than force a replacement This was essential since the focus of efforts should be the content not the delivery mechanism Strategy The overall strategy is to organize the information by concept As illustrated in the figure basic and generic information form the basis for understanding phenomena and processes From there we can construct devices systems composed of components in a meaningful way We use this organization to capture the knowledge behind the CANDU design Available thematic documents courses monographs industry based documents etc form the source material from which the concept based material is derived These source documents are stored in the technical documents library Tactics Design by its very nature is not an exercise wherein the final form is derived directly from design requirements and constraints Typical systems are not simple enough for that Rather based on legacy the situational context experience engineering know how etc a design is proposed and then evaluated modelling and analysis redesigned and so on It is difficult then to document why in the large CANDU was designed the way it was To

    the major topic areas disciplines for which educational material is to be developed Broad brush overall CANDU topic areas Comments Status Done as of 2000 02 13 To be updated as required Person WJG Determine the required end product material Comments Status To be determined Person DAM WJG GB Determine which concept modules need to be developed and in what priority The highest priority concept modules are those that are central in their own right and those that are critical to end product documents Comments Initially thermalhydraulics reactor physics and overall systems are targeted The focus is on why the systems are designed the way they are as opposed to system descriptions Status Ongoing Person DAM WJG GB Establish and maintain an inventory of available material and courses Comments Status Initial inventory done as of 2000 03 01 To be updated on an ongoing basis Person WJG Collection of a glossary of terms and nomenclature This will be an ongoing task Comments Status no start date set Person WJG CG Generate a collection of commonly used figures and equations to reduce repetition and discrepancies and to encourage a common format This will be an ongoing task Comments Status Started as of 2000 06 20 Person WS Reactor Systems Design Develop a concept map outline Comments The focus is to establish why CANDU is the way it is rather than provide a design description The initial task is to interview key personnel Status Started as of 2000 06 05 Initial pages generated on 2000 09 19 See CANDU How Why To come are a historical page and a page on macro decisions in design fuel type moderator type etc Person WJG Establish and maintain a list of available documents courses Comments Status Ongoing Person WJG Reactor Physics Develop a concept map outline Comments Status Drafted as of 2000 04 13 Currently out for comment Person WJG Establish and maintain a list of available documents courses Comments Status Initial list Done as of 2000 03 01 To be updated on an ongoing basis Person WJG Preparation of reactor physics modules diffusion theory Comments This will be a test of the proposed format Status Started as of 2000 05 01 Two modules have been drafted On hold in favour of working on How and Why pages Person WJG Preparation of the nuclear database detectors and benchmarking modules for reactor physics Comments Status Started as of 2000 06 05 Person AL Preparation of Monte Carlo Method for Particle Transport Simulation module for reactor physics Comments Status Under consideration as of 2000 06 05 Person AL EH Thermalhydraulics Develop a concept map outline Comments Status Drafted as of 2000 05 18 Currently out for comment Person WJG Establish and maintain a list of available documents courses Comments Status Initial list Done as of 2000 03 01 To be updated on an ongoing basis Person WJG Preparation of thermalhydraulic modules Comments Initial work will be based on existing McMaster courses and augmentation with AECL material Status
