Advanced technologies have had a profound impact on our life and work place. Advanced technologies include computers and related software development, human factors engineering, systems analysis and analytical techniques, and improved quantitative management processes. New techniques, made possible by modern computer hardware and software applications, are becoming indispensable for providing improved methods to assure safe, reliable, and less costly means of accomplishing many tasks. Advanced technologies are ideally suited for improving the performance of new and existing nuclear powerplants.
