WHC-SD-SNF-FRD-011 Rev. 0
Multi-Canister Overpack. Item that houses SNF in a configuration which is to be determined.
Designed specifically for K Basin SNF only.
Package. SNF and its packaging.
Packaging, Material which provides containment and shielding (e.g., MCO and cask) for SNF.
Path Forward. Integrated activities to achieve a defined strategy for final disposition of SNF.
Requirement. Requirements define how well a function must perform. Requirements set limits
on functions and also limits on the outputs from functions. A requirement is a description of a
mandatory condition under which a function must be performed. Requirements are documented
in technical specifications, statutes, regulations, Secretary of Energy Notices, DOE orders,
Department of Energy Richland Operations Office (DOE-RL) Directives, or other official
direction from the DOE customer.
Spent Nuclear Fuel. Nuclear fuel that has been withdrawn from a nuclear reactor following
irradiation and the constituent elements that have not been separated by reprocessing.
Systems Engineering. The systematic approach used to transform technical goals and objectives
into an optimized, operational, physical system that achieves its mission. The iterative technical
and management process applied throughout a system life cycle that produces and maintains a
well defined and documented system technical baseline.
Technical Baseline. The documented functions, requirements, and configuration from which the
program will acquire an operational system. The technical baseline is maintained under
configuration control, and is the basis for technical performance measurement.
Transfer. Movement of materials within the confines of the Hanford Site.
