  • Content Description: A computer algorithm has been developed and implemented to search the Sequence Coding and Search System Licensee Event (LER) database for failures or conditions common to Accident Sequence Precursor (ASP) events. Use of the algorithm has greatly improved the efficiency and timeliness in identifying potential ASP events and, by focusing attention on the most likely precursor events, has reduced the likelihood that these events will be overlooked in manual screening.
