In response to decreasing funding levels available to support activities at the Idaho
Chemical Processing Plant (ICPP) and a desire to be cost competitive, the Department of Energy
Idaho Operations Office (DOE-ID) and Lockheed Idaho Technologies Company have increased
their emphasis on cost-saving measures. The ICPP Effectiveness Improvement Initiative involves
many activities to improve cost effectiveness and competitiveness. This report documents the
methodology and results of one of those cost cutting measures, the Process Efficiency
The Process Efficiency Improvement Activity performed a systematic review of major
work processes at the ICPP to increase productivity and to identify nonvalue-added requirements.
A two-phase approach was selected for the activity to allow for near-term implementation of
relatively easy process modifications in the first phase while obtaining long-term continuous
improvement in the second phase and beyond. Phase I of the initiative included a concentrated
review of processes that had a high potential for cost savings with the intent of realizing savings in
Fiscal Year 1996 (FY-96.) Phase II consists of implementing long-term strategies too complex for
Phase I implementation and evaluation of processes not targeted for Phase I review. The Phase II
effort is targeted for realizing cost savings in FY-97 and beyond.
