Abstract

The proliferation in the past few years of data banks related to safety and reliability of nuclear reactors has somewhat alleviated the problem of lack of imformation when carrying out safety analysis; but it has succeeded meanwhile in identifying several crucial aspects in the overall procedures of collection, processing and use of data. These aspects are reviewed in the paper with special emphasis on the interaction of the information and the various interpretative models of component and system behaviour. The need for the analyst not only to validate stated models, but also to attempt new interpretations of the facts, is particularly stressed. Eventually the role of the new Artificial Intelligence techniques in supporting man in his search for model structures - that is the "history" underlying the facts, is mentioned.
