Abstract Task integrated evaluation and sequencing (TIES) is a methodology developed by Fluor Daniel for the disciplined planning of complex deactivation and decommissioning (D&D) projects. TIES was developed for the deactivation and transition planning of the ROVER facility at the Idaho National Engineering Laboratory and is consistent with the U.S. Department of Energy`s strategy for deactivation of surplus facilities. The TIES methodology is particularly effective during the deactivation period of facility transition where hazards are reduced, systems are isolated, and equipment is removed. The use of TIES results in the overall planning of the deactivation effort and focuses on the achievement of the desired end points. Because it is task oriented and sequenced, TIES forms a basis for a rolling window of detailed design planning, which provides flexibility in dealing with unforeseen problems that potentially could arise during the project.
