Abstract: Monte Carlo codes have found applications in nuclear safeguards as complementary tool in Non-Destructive Assay (NDA). Up to now, the use of Monte Carlo has been limited to specialised experts, due to the complexity of the modelling and to the skills required to properly use the code. In order to open the direct in-field use by nuclear inspectors, JRC and i-Science have developed XFUELBUILDER. This is a program that allows the inspector to prepare an MCNP-PTA input deck using a simple and user-friendly graphical interface, and then running the calculation simulating the measurements done with neutron coincidence collars. This paper describes the functionalities of XFUELBUILDER and discusses the potential implications for its in-field use.
