SCOPE: synergistic computer optimization of planning for enrichment status report

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The computer program SCOPE was developed to provide a schedule for filling orders for enriched uranium while constrained by: (1) the size and efficiency of the current and projected uranium enrichment complex; (2) the current levels of ''yard inventory'' of enriched uranium below 5 percent; and (3) variable conditions such as projected schedule of power availability, cascade tails assay, and the ERDA ''Order Book'' of firm and projected orders for enriched uranium. The program can be extended to include several more enrichment plants, such as a centrifuge plant. Output includes a detailed daily set of feed and withdrawal rates for ... continued below

Description

The computer program SCOPE was developed to provide a schedule for filling orders for enriched uranium while constrained by: (1) the size and efficiency of the current and projected uranium enrichment complex; (2) the current levels of ''yard inventory'' of enriched uranium below 5 percent; and (3) variable conditions such as projected schedule of power availability, cascade tails assay, and the ERDA ''Order Book'' of firm and projected orders for enriched uranium. The program can be extended to include several more enrichment plants, such as a centrifuge plant. Output includes a detailed daily set of feed and withdrawal rates for each plant and a survey of all yard inventories at the end of each month. The Phase I program does not contain cost tables; therefore, it cannot consider costs directly at this time. However, it does use heuristic procedures to establish preproduction schedules that will result in lower ERDA feed usage and, consequently, lower costs. The program currently relies on two files for data used in calculations. The first data set consists of all current UF/sub 6/ inventories at the plants; the second data set contains the ERDA enrichment requirements.
