phase. The. size of.the project is characterized according to DOE Order
4700.1 (4). which uses the following definitions: Major System Acquisition
(MSA), Major Project, Minor Project, Capital Equipment Not Related to
Construction (CENRTC), General Plant Project, and Expense Project. The
type of project includes modification and new construction. The design
phase is also characterized according to DOE Order 4700.1 by the following
categories: Engineering Study, Functional Design, Conceptual Design,
Preliminary Design, Definitive Design, and Construction. The EDG uses this
project information to filter and display only the applicable opportunities. For
example, the opportunities applicable to a large project may not be relevant
to a small project.
The organization of the EDG data base reflects the sixteen divisions
identified by DOE Order 6430.1A, Genera/ Design Criteria (). These
divisions are based on the Construction Specifications Institute (CSI)
Masterformat system, and are therefore organized similar to specifications
developed on non-DOE design projects. The user designates which
divisions are applicable to the project and assigns responsible individuals to
examine the opportunities in each division for possible use in the project.
The main display for P2-EDGE (see Figure 1) provides information on
pollution prevention opportunities. The user may display opportunities from
any of the 16 divisions: Within each division, opportunities are further
sorted by the hierarchy established in the Pollution Prevention Act of 1990
(6): source reduction (A); recycling (B); treatment (C); and disposal (D).
These pollution prevention hierarchy categories are indicated by color-coded,
tabbed folders that can be accessed by using the mouse to click on one of
the tabs beneath the division title. The number of pollution prevention
opportunities vary within the 16 divisions and pollution prevention
hierarchies (most are contained in folder A, reflecting a priority on source
P2-EDGE is quickly learned and easy to use. Using a mouse, the user
clicks on objects displayed in the windows to make selections, navigate
between windows, or sequence through information displayed on the screen.
The functions located in the pull-down menus promote efficient use and
customization of the tool, including the following features:
