INMM Conference papers on Knowledge Management and Training

The client: The Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission

Our solution: Eton Systems prepared and delivered a series of papers at Institute of Nuclear Materials Management (INMM) Annual Meetings for the Canadian Safeguards Support Program of the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission. Copies of the papers and presentations are available by following the links below.

IAEA Symposium on International Safeguards papers

The client: The Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission

The challenge: Every four years, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) hosts a Symposium on International Safeguards at its headquarters in Vienna. The Symposium brings together key stakeholders from the IAEA, Member States, nuclear industry, and members of the broader nuclear safeguards and non-proliferation community. Over the course of a week, attendees examine and discuss contemporary issues in nuclear verification.

Our solution: Eton Systems prepared and delivered papers at two of the Symposia. Copies of the papers and presentations are available on the IAEA Safeguards Symposium page.

Factory floor procedure documentation

The client: A precision glass component manufacturer

The challenge: Our client manufactures precision glass components using proprietary techniques that have been developed in-house. All of these techniques and processes are taught to new employees using on-the-job training. Our client is worried that if a skilled employee leaves or is ill for an extended period, both production and training will be adversely affected.

Our solution: In factory floor knowledge gathering sessions, we interviewed employees, photographed various process steps, and collected as much existing documentation as we could find. We produced a series of fully-illustrated step-by-step procedure manuals.

The result: Our client was so pleased with our factory floor knowledge gathering efforts, they contracted us to document their business processes in marketing and product development.

Course redevelopment

The client: Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC)

The challenge: The CNSC had a 150-page course manual entitled An Introduction to Nuclear Theory with a companion self-paced learning multimedia presentation. Student feedback indicated that the course material was, in fact, too advanced for some.

Our solution: Based on the existing manual and multimedia presentation materials, and in consultation with CNSC nuclear physicists, we rewrote the course manual for a more general audience.

The result: The highly technical material is now accessible to a greater spectrum of CNSC employees.
