The CRIOP methodology step by step - document scenario analysis results

The documentation of results from the Scenario Analysis should include:

  • A description of operator tasks
  • A description of identified weak points
  • Reference to questions in the scenario checklists
  • Suggestions for remedial measures based on the identified weak points

Note that many of the findings represent possible safety problems that may be used as a basis for recommendations when preparing operators in the handling of abnormal situations. Typical of many findings is that they highlight negative aspects of the control centre, but in most cases there is a trade off between the negative and positive effects of measures. The weak points therefore do not necessarily require design changes, but in many cases the purpose is rather to prepare and call the operators' attention to possible safety problems.

The identified recommendations should be assessed with regard to need for implementation and cost of implementation, although the method does not suggest a systematic procedure for this.
