The hotline allows the deactivation and decommissioning community to post problems
in a specific deactivation and decommissioning (D&D) area and get solutions
from the subject matter specialists. Users can also search for previously published
problems and their solutions.
Technology provides information on deactivation and decommissioning related technologies including robotics
and any associated demonstrations. It provides technology descriptions, benefits,
limitations, and associated links and documents. It also provides vendor information,
technology and demonstration fact sheet reports, and search capabilities.
The custom deactivation and decommissioning web crawler searches and retrieve information
from deactivation and decommissioning related websites. The crawler provides the
user with a listing of best-matching web pages, usually with a short summary containing
the document's title or parts of the text.
The mobile system component provides access to important D&D KM-IT features through wireless devices. The D&D community users can access the following modules from their mobile devices: vendor directory, specialist directory, hotline, technology information, picture library, lessons learned and best practices, and the fixative module.
Lessons learned provides a repository of documents published by the deactivation and decommissioning community users. This allows them to share their experience with
Best practices provides a repository of deactivation and decommissioning best practices
documents that the user community can upload to the system.
The video/picture library allows community users to upload deactivation and decommissioning
technology and demonstration videos and pictures to the deactivation and decommissioning
KM-IT system. The videos and pictures could then be viewed by the decommissioning
and dismantlement community.
Weekly reports published by the ALARA center include the status of the deactivation and decommissioning activities that have taken place at various centers. It includes
the list of ALARA center activities for consecutive weeks. This feature makes the
reports available to the entire deactivation and decommissioning user community.
The specialist directory provides a directory of deactivation and decommissioning
experts in different areas along with their contact information. The user can search
the specialist directory by name or by area of interest.
Vendor management provides a directory of deactivation and decommissioning vendors
along with their contact information.
D&D Research for DOE EM highlights the recent, current, and ongoing research being
performed by and for DOE EM as well as international D&D research to support the high
priority D&D needs to bring the remaining cleanup projects to completion in support
of site closure. This research includes activities at and through collaborations
with academic universities, national laboratories, DOE contractor facilities, and
The training component provides training videos related to deactivation and decommissioning
work, ALARA Centers’ training material and custom training for the deactivation and decommissioning community.

The D&D KM-IT is a web-based knowledge management information tool custom built
for the decommissioning and dismantlement user community. This system is being developed
by Florida International University - Applied Research Center (FIU-ARC) in collaboration
with the Department of Energy - Environmental Management,EFCOG, and the ALARA Centers
at Hanford and Savannah River.
Florida International University (FIU) is conducting a series of D&D Tech Talks
focusing on several D&D topics relevant to the DOE EM Complex. On April 19, 2022,
FIU will feature a Tech Talk from Lawrence (Larry) Boing focusing on the Decommissioning Knowledge Sharing in the 21st Century.
The Deactivation & Decommissioning Knowledge Management Information Tool (D&D KM-IT) is a web-based knowledge management information tool custom built
for the deactivation and decommissioning user community.
