Pre-Conference Workshop Agenda

Nuclear modernization is on a scale and ambitious timetable that has not been seen in decades. The sheer scope of the project presents an expansive range of challenges that each by themselves threaten to derail mission success including:

  • War Reserve Supply Chain Surety
  • Warehousing
  • Contracting
  • Workforce Planning, Scalability, and Knowledge Transfer

This session will focus on the operational barriers, mitigative strategies, and innovative actions to address challenges, drive down risk, and drive mission success.
