The key issue of aging management is to reliably provide prognosis of, e.g., critical points, degradation rates and the remaining lifetime of components. The requirements for a comprehensive aging management are very extensive and require in-depth knowledge about the evaluation of systems, structures and components (SSCs) with respect to degradation effects.


AREVA NP's Mechanical Degradation Assessment is a smart aging and plant life management strategy which provides remarkable economic benefits.
 Our process is based upon a proprietary suite of software tools called COMSY. It makes a quantified prognosis of degradation processes in systems, structures and components.
