Abstract

Purpose. The article presents the description of information system eLab on free software, on the basis of which the Intellectual Information System of employees of the Gosatomnadzor of the Republic of Belarus is developed to provide control (supervision) in the field of nuclear and radiation safety. The system is designated to automate the work of employees for supervision during the construction and commissioning of the Belarusian NPP (BelNPP), including monitoring (supervision) of equipment, systems and components of power units No. 1, 2 of BelNPP and monitoring (supervision) of radiation safety of sources of ionizing radiation, with the possibility of further upgrading the software complex, if necessary.

Methods. Algorithms to increase the functionality of the system using a block database model and the one of functioning of the system in general as well as the functions of parts of the system software are considered and described. The architecture of the system, network structure and software structure are given.

Findings. Proposed algorithms for increasing the functionality of the system allow the effective implementation of software of required functions of the information system. This system is a vivid example of enterprise applications and is developed in strict accordance with the basic principles and ideas of creating such applications.

Application field of research. The described system will be used to automate the processes of collecting, processing and storing data in the field of managing the resource characteristics of the elements of the power units of the Belarusian NPP which is necessary for information support and control over the performance of works at BelNPP. It will be used for presentation in visual form of materials on BelNPP equipment and the results of its survey, as well as for schedule planning ensuring the performance of works on control and supervisory activities.

Conclusions. The work was carried out within the framework of task 1-02 of the State Scientific and Technical Conference «Intellectual Information Technologies» and is very important in connection with BelNPP construction.
