This paper describes how the Westinghouse Decision Advisor Process was employed to develop and quantitatively evaluate the financial merits of alternative strategies to address Alloy 600 (& 82/182) degradation issues at the higher-susceptibility locations throughout four Exelon Generation Company nuclear power units. The objective was to help Exelon focus its resources over both locations and time. Recommendations were also provided for the actions to resolve these issues at these highly susceptible locations. The paper describes the actions taken by Exelon that were supported by this study.
