Spare parts inventory levels at nuclear generation plants have neared all-time highs at some facilities. As part of an ongoing research project, the authors are developing a decision making framework for nuclear spare parts management. This paper describes the use of an influence diagram model to represent the existing spare parts process at a United States nuclear facility. We then discuss how this model can be extended to develop an interview protocol for subsequent data collection using the Analytic Hierarchy Process. The influence diagram drives the overall analysis of determining best practices for the spare parts process for continuous improvement.
