U.S. Iter QA Approach

by John Mashburn, U.S. iter

The 500 MW ITER Tokamak is a dramatic scale-up in size and power from all fusion reactors previously built. The ITER Project puts together the science, engineering, and industrial efforts of seven countries that include half the world’s population. The quality assurance program to be discussed is a key to achieving the required nuclear license for the plant that will complete the fusion science and engineering foundation to allow industrial deployment of fusion electric plants by mid-21st century.

Creating an Effective Quality System for Environmental Research and Development

by Kevin Hull and David Gratson

The creation of an effective quality system for the research and development sphere presents a special challenge for quality practitioners. Even though there are clear parallels between the philosophy of quality and the scientific method, those tasked with applying a quality system to the work of scientific researchers face both technical and cultural hurdles. This presentation describes the successes and lessons learned from more than a decade of quality system development and implementation in support of the US EPA Office of Research and Development.
