RSICC CODE PACKAGE PSR-486
1. NAME AND TITLE
TSORT: Automated Technique for Nuclear Plant Training Task Assignment.
Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Oak Ridge, Tennessee, through the Energy Science and Technology Software Center, Oak Ridge, Tennessee.
3. CODING LANGUAGE AND COMPUTER
BASIC; IBM PC (P00486IBMPC00).
4. NATURE OF PROBLEM SOLVED
TSORT is an automated technique to assign tasks to training strategies. This technique assists the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) in two areas: the first is to provide a standardized method to select tasks for use in NRC-sponsored training research and the second is to evaluate whether training program developers have allocated nuclear power plant tasks to appropriate training strategies.
5. METHOD OF SOLUTION
A multi-attribute utility theory and a count metric method is used.
6. RESTRICTIONS OR LIMITATIONS
Maxima of 10 information dimensions and 9 training strategy categories.
7. TYPICAL RUNNING TIME
Each sort option requires approximately 2 minutes on an IBM PC/AT.
8. COMPUTER HARDWARE REQUIREMENTS
IBM PC, or compatible, computer with color graphics monitor.
9. COMPUTER SOFTWARE REQUIREMENTS
The software was developed under DOS 3.1. A BASICA (QBASIC or BASIC) interpreter is required to run it. The software was developed in 1984 and was not modified when transferred to RSICC and released in September 2001.
