Watch a short video (1:31) introducing some of the advantages of using Exercise Builder Nuclear.
Emergency preparedness managers in the nuclear power industry are challenged with increasing scrutiny and regulations requiring more comprehensive drills and exercises. Exercise Builder Nuclear helps meet these challenges with powerful drill and exercise management tools and the convenience of an online application that can store all current and historical exercise and drill data in one place—all accessible with the click of a mouse.
With Exercise Builder Nuclear, scenario development teams can streamline and automate drill and exercise planning. All historic and current data can be conveniently stored and accessed, including quick retrieval of multi-year reports. Time-saving features include:

Changing regulations are complex and difficult to keep up with, so Exercise Builder Nuclear helps nuclear power facilities respond to changing Nuclear Regulatory Commission and Institute of Nuclear Power Operations regulations. Through the use of easily modified performance objectives and scenarios, drills and exercises can be developed to meet the most recent change in requirements.
A centralized repository of drill and exercise data enables emergency preparedness teams to deliver consistent, comprehensive drills and exercises at every site. This reliable information also streamlines reporting and collaboration between key stakeholder groups. When objectives, demonstration criteria and scenarios are standardized across the fleet, you can feel confident that every facility is prepared to respond and recover effectively.
ORAU created Exercise Builder Nuclear with feedback from fleet emergency preparedness managers across the United States to provide a user-friendly application that works the way you do. Delivered securely over the Internet, Exercise Builder Nuclear is available whether you’re in the office or working at a remote location.
