Waste Management: An integrated modeling approach for analyzing change in NWC production processes

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

A problem-driven, integrated modeling, decision-support framework has been conceptualized to aid a team of experts determine the set of evolving technologies that should receive additional developmental support. This conceptual framework utilizes a variety of decision aiding models including Flowsheeting, Analytical Hierarchy Process, Linear and Goal Programming, and Object-Oriented Discrete Event Simulation. A number of the technologies under consideration are strong candidates to overcome current plutonium processing problems so that effective technology will be available for implementation in Complex 21. Complex 21 is a participatory, inter-installation planning effort sponsored by US DOE to consolidate and revitalize the nuclear weapons complex facilities ... continued below

A problem-driven, integrated modeling, decision-support framework has been conceptualized to aid a team of experts determine the set of evolving technologies that should receive additional developmental support. This conceptual framework utilizes a variety of decision aiding models including Flowsheeting, Analytical Hierarchy Process, Linear and Goal Programming, and Object-Oriented Discrete Event Simulation. A number of the technologies under consideration are strong candidates to overcome current plutonium processing problems so that effective technology will be available for implementation in Complex 21. Complex 21 is a participatory, inter-installation planning effort sponsored by US DOE to consolidate and revitalize the nuclear weapons complex facilities by the 21st century. A computer-based dynamic simulation model has been constructed that will allow testing of alternative combinations of developing technologies. The modeling of new configurations of technologies under a number of different operating conditions and material flow assumptions provides information needed for effective decision making for Complex 21. 4 figs.
