The author is grateful for the constructive feedback from peer reviews by Drs. Kymn Harvin, Paul Blanch, Jim Riccio, and David Wright.
The author also appreciates the permission granted by Dr. Bill Corcoran to use his quality assurance graphic in Chapter 4 and, more importantly, for Bill’s long campaign to have nuclear plant managers embrace the quality assurance requirements outlined in Appendix B to Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations, Part 50.
Last but not least, the author acknowledges the fine technical editing performed by Bryan Wadsworth and Heather Tuttle.
