The purpose of this document is to develop a process for the systematic evaluation of the comparative performance of proposed Generation IV concepts against established Generation IV Goals. A simple methodology has been developed for an initial screening of concepts for their potential to meet the goals. Methodology allows for a qualitative assessment of concepts for their potential to meet Generation IV Goals; assessment is based on a comparison to a Generation III reference. A refined methodology for Final Screening is in development to allow for comparison and finer discrimination among concepts also for relative ranking of concepts to support selection.
