Search the D&D KM-IT
The hotline allows the decommissioning and dismantlement community to post problems
in a specific decommissioning and dismantlement (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 decommissioning and dismantlement 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 decommissioning and dismantlement web crawler searches and retrieve information
from decommissioning and dismantlement 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 decommissioning
and dismantlement community users. This allows them to share their experience with
Best practices provides a repository of decommissioning and dismantlement best practices
documents that the user community can upload to the system.
The video/picture library allows community users to upload decommissioning and dismantlement
technology and demonstration videos and pictures to the decommissioning and dismantlement
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 decommissioning
and dismantlement 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 decommissioning and dismantlement user community.
The specialist directory provides a directory of decommissioning and dismantlement
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 decommissioning and dismantlement vendors
along with their contact information.
Collaboration tools provides information-sharing mechanisms such as decommissioning
and dismantlement news, events calendars, links, message boards, and frequently
asked questions (FAQs). This allows the decommissioning and dismantlement community
to interact with fellow users.
The training component provides training videos related to decommissioning and dismantlement
work, ALARA Centers’ training material and custom training for the decommissioning
and dismantlement community.
One part of the D&D web crawler (Search D&D KM-IT) will provide D&D KM-IT search
capability through its own repository of documents including lessons learned, best
practices, ALARA reports, videos/pictures, etc. The search can be narrowed down
to the pool of important information customized for the D&D community. To use this
feature, simply click on the “Search D&D KM-IT” button from within the Web Crawler
module to be taken to the search page. Enter the query in the box provided and click
the “Search” button.
For the second part of the D&D web crawler (Search WEB), when the user enters a
query, the crawler examines its ‘index’ and provides a list of the best-matching
returns according to the criteria, usually with a short summary containing the document
title or part of the text. The usefulness of the search engine depends on the text
it returns. The custom web crawler will search and return the information only from
the specified web links it has been provided with; thus, the search can be more
refined and categorized. To use this feature, simply click on the “Search WEB” button
from within the Web Crawler module to be taken to the search page. Enter the query
in the box provided and click the “Search” button.
The objective of the web crawler is to give the user the ability to search the entire
KM-IT system for documents related to their search terms (using Search D&D KM-IT)
and also to provide a targeted list of search results from D&D related websites
(using Search WEB).
No. the Search D&D KM-IT feature only returns documents that have been saved in
one of the D&D KM-IT modules (ALARA Reports, Lessons Learned, etc.) For example,
if you enter a search term for a technology, the return results will include any
documents related to that technology but will not link you to the Technology module
web pages related to that technology.
The Search WEB return results may include links to relevant web pages in addition
to documents found related to the search query.
When you click on the “Search D&D KM-IT” or “Search WEB” button, you will be taken
to the search page. This page includes an explanation of the different types of
search formats that you can use.
