CannibalizationMatches "donor" to "recipient" components

Cannibalization is a special case of the Rebuild/Repair option where in an emergency the site may obtain the required repair parts by scavenging from another component that is typically not operable. This solution effectively buys time until a long-term solution is found.

Besides depleting the total spare parts inventory without replacing them and introducing configuration control issues, the greatest challenge is establishing whether the sub-tier parts of an assembled component are truly identical. By maintaining detailed Bills of Material for thousands of installed nuclear components, Curtiss-Wright Flow Control Nuclear Group provides assistance in establishing valid matches between the “donor” and “recipient” components.
