Other standard applications offered through the W-Nexus suite are available to you to create a dynamic digital work environment.
WEMMEX is designed to be the “one-stop shop” user interface where engineers have access to all the information that they need to support their work. The application is designed to be used by all personnel to look up cross-discipline information integrated into one tool. WEMMEX is easily extendable so that data sources can be continuously added and new reports can be designed, edited and deployed quickly. Engineering information is viewable through a web-based reporting tool or through the 3D model; the underlying data is the same, only the viewing context changes.
The WAND application houses metadata related to plant documentation, maintaining Configuration Management (CM) throughout all phases of plant design, construction, operation and upgrades, and has the ability to interface with other applications.
WAND is highly adaptable. Key, near-term enhancements include Electronic Engineering & Design Coordination Report (E&DCR) forms, tracking of document references and a standard design process.
WASP is an integrated tool for civil/structural data and 3D model management. WASP allows utility owners, designers and contractors to collaborate in the full lifecycle of the plant. The application also enables users to access information to facilitate maintenance, design, construction and interface with other systems. WASP’s main focus is on the key interfaces between ‘systems’ and ‘buildings’ to manage the plant attachments and penetrations, including associated barrier requirements.
Future phases of WASP will integrate more structural data including structural modules to then be linked to 3D models, design calculations, and Certified for Construction documents. WASP will also include plant walk-down data and fragility data for structures and components. It will interact with the reliability and risk analysis platform to aid PRA models and interface with WRAP.
Probabilistic Risk Assessment (PRA) for nuclear power plants is a technology that relies on information from a vast landscape of disciplines. Because the aim of PRA is the realistic representation of the risk associated with the as-built, as-operated design of the plant, coordination with multiple design disciplines is paramount.
WRAP is intended to become a comprehensive tool that leverages integration with other design disciplines to funnel design changes into the development and, most notably, in the long-term maintenance of the plant’s PRA program, including model and documentation.
The WRAP platform concept will allow smooth interaction with third-party software, while systematically collecting and managing design changes and their impact to the PRA logic. WRAP will integrate with other applications to support fire hazard analysis; area events and seismic hazards; internal flooding; and PRA maintenance.
