Description

The Graphical Facility Information System{trademark} (GraFIC{trademark}) is an intelligent facility and information management system that provides near real time, verifiable status of safeguarded materials in a nuclear storage facility. GraFIC{trademark} is a versatile software package that is designed to operate in a distributed computing environment and to provide item and facility activity information to an unlimited number of authorized clients. Recent extensions to GraFIC{trademark} include the ability to link graphical entities to multimedia documents, interfaces to multiple material control and accountability systems, and alternate data entry and operator interaction mechanisms. Relevant multimedia documents such as still images and iPIX{trademark} immersive ... continued below

Description

The Graphical Facility Information System{trademark} (GraFIC{trademark}) is an intelligent facility and information management system that provides near real time, verifiable status of safeguarded materials in a nuclear storage facility. GraFIC{trademark} is a versatile software package that is designed to operate in a distributed computing environment and to provide item and facility activity information to an unlimited number of authorized clients. Recent extensions to GraFIC{trademark} include the ability to link graphical entities to multimedia documents, interfaces to multiple material control and accountability systems, and alternate data entry and operator interaction mechanisms. Relevant multimedia documents such as still images and iPIX{trademark} immersive images can be summoned on demand from their icons on floor plans. An iPIX{trademark} image server, equipped with the appropriate sensors can signal GraFIC{trademark} that an event that warrants the review of a series of saved iPIX{trademark} images has occurred. GraFIC{trademark} provides mechanisms for presenting information obtained from sensor-based monitoring systems and/or other information systems in a common, easy-to-use graphical format. GraFIC{trademark} was initially integrated with the Continuous Automated Vault Inventory System's (CAVIS{trademark} ) suite of rugged, low-cost sensors that remotely monitor the physical and/or assigned attributes associated with stored nuclear materials. GraFIC{trademark} can now interface with the ReflectoActive Seals{trademark} (RASeals) System. The framework designed for the RASeals interface is suitable for integrating with other systems, such as SmartShelf{trademark} . GraFIC{trademark} can import existing data for stored material from other information systems. By retrieving existing information from other information systems, the expense, effort, and possible inaccuracies associated with manual entry are eliminated. Another data entry method involves offloading the data from the hand held terminals/barcode readers used by operators on the warehouse floor. GraFIC{trademark} also contains facility management tools needed for the day-to-day management of storage and other facilities and gives facility managers and personnel instant access to the information they need to run their facilities. Any authorized client can obtain information about facility procedures, storage space availability, physical dimensions of areas, record management, location of assets, and a variety of other facilities needs.
