Title: DOE Safety Software Quality Assurance Approach


1
DOE Safety Software Quality Assurance Approach
  • Debra Sparkman
  • January 2005

2
Purpose General Information
  • Improve DOE and contractor safety software
  • Secretarial Commitment to DNFSB (Rec 2002-1)
  • Focused on nuclear facility safety
  • Compatible with national standards
  • Compatible with current program requirements
  • Does not supersede externally regulated software

3
Safety Software Definitions
  • SAFETY SYSTEM SOFTWARE. Software for a nuclear
    facility that performs a safety function as part
    of an SSC and is cited in either 1) DOE approved
    documented safety analysis or, 2) an approved
    hazard analysis per DOE P 450.4 safety management
    system policy and the dear clause.

Safety Software Definitions - cont
  • SAFETY AND HAZARD ANALYSIS SOFTWARE AND DESIGN
    SOFTWARE. Software that is used to classify,
    design, or analyze nuclear facilities.  This
    software is not part of an SSC but helps to
    ensure the proper accident or hazards analysis of
    nuclear facilities or an SSC that performs a
    safety function.

5
Safety Software Definitions - cont
  • SAFETY MANAGEMENT AND ADMINISTRATIVE CONTROLS
    SOFTWARE. Software that performs a hazard control
    function in support of Safety Management Programs
    or Technical Safety Requirements or, other
    software that performs a control function
    necessary to provide adequate protection from
    hazards. This software supports eliminating,
    limiting, or mitigating hazards to workers, the
    public, or the environment. Per 10 CFR 830,
    quality assurance requirements apply to all DOE
    nuclear facilities including radiological
    facilities (see 10 CFR 830, DOE Std 1120, and the
    DEAR Clause).

6
The DOE Focus
  • 3 Basic Areas
  • Roles, Responsibilities Qualifications of DOE
    Staff
  • Quality of the Software
  • Continuous Improvement

7
Roles, Responsibilities Qualifications
  • Develop qualification standard for Fed staff
  • Identify the Feds responsible for SQA
  • Qualify the Feds
  • Courses (e.g., ASQ CQE BOK, SEI, Sw Safety)
  • Job Experience
  • Expectations for contractor qualifications

8
Quality of Software
  • Create a Central Location for Commonly Used
    Software establish criteria for being in CR,
    establish minimum SQA criteria, assess codes
    determine gaps, close gaps.
  • Assess Existing Software Establish assessment
    criteria, determine what to assess and when,
    perform the assessments.
  • Establish New SQA Requirements graded approach,
    NQA-1 based.

9
Basic Safety Software Requirements DOE O 414.C
  • Facility design authority involvement in
    identifying software specification acquisition,
    design, development, verification and validation
    (including inspection and test), configuration
    management, maintenance, and retirement.
  • Identify, document, and maintain safety software
    inventory.
  • Establishes ASME NQA-1-2000 as the standard to
    use for safety software supplemented by other
    consensus standards.
  • Designate safety software as either grade Level
    A, Level B, or Level C.
  • Select and implement the applicable software
    quality assurance work activities using the
    grading levels.

10
10 Required SQA Work Activities
  • Software project management
  • Software risk management
  • Software configuration management
  • Procurement vendor management
  • Software requirements identification management
  • Software design implementation
  • Software safety design
  • Verification validation
  • Problem reporting corrective action
  • Training of personnel in the design, development,
    use evaluation of safety software

11
Continuous Improvement
  • Communications
  • List Server
  • SQA Knowledge Management Portal
  • Collaborations
  • Subject Matter Expert Panel
  • DOE participation on standards working groups
    (ANSI/ASQ, IAEA, ASME/NQA-1, ANS)
  • Safety Critical Community Discussion Board
  • DOE Liaison for IEEE S2ESC

12
Path Forward
  • Roles and Responsibilities
  • Federal Staff is being qualified
  • Quality of Software
  • Initial software assessments completed
  • Central Registry and tool box codes in place
  • Tool box codes will be upgraded to remove gaps
  • Directives waiting to be issued
  • Continuous Improvement
  • In place and continually expanding
