We report the status of the R-matrix code AMUR toward consistent cross-section evaluation and covariance analysis for the light-mass nuclei. The applicable limit of the code is extended by including computational capability for the charged-particle elastic scattering cross-sections and the neutron capture cross-sections as example results are shown in the main texts. A simultaneous analysis is performed on the 17O compound system including the 16O(n,tot) and 13C(α,n)16O reactions together with the 16O(n,n) and 13C(α,α) scattering cross-sections. It is found that a large theoretical background is required for each reaction process to obtain a simultaneous fit with all the experimental cross-sections we analyzed. Also, the hard-sphere radii should be assumed to be different from the channel radii. Although these are technical approaches, we could learn roles and sources of the theoretical background in the standard R-matrix.
