Abstract:

This report provides an overview of performance assurance practices developed and applied since World War II to improve the cost-effectiveness of selected, large-scale technological systems. The purpose is to present concepts which might be applicable in reducing the frequency and duration of electric powerplant outages. A comprehensive performance assurance program is recommended. The elements of the suggested program were derived by considering elements of precedent programs which are believed to be most effective in other applications.
