There is a global drive to build new research reactors, currently the calculation of various saftely and perfomance parameters is very time consuming for a single design. In the calculation process there are two classes of solutions , Monte Carlo methods which are accurate and flexible but slow and anyalatical methods which are very fast but not as accurate or flexible. This paper will look at creating a hybrid solution between MCNP (MonteCarlo) and OSCAR(analytical) as well as create input sets for both code systems using AI, this will take months to do without a code system. The code system will be easy to use and aid in reactor calculation
