Feed Materials Production Center. Final phase-in report volume 9 of 15 management control system, October 25, 1985--December 31, 1985

Description: Well planned work is the key to success in managing a project or facility. Many large or small projects have management systems that are excellent in collecting history, such as monthly costs or shipments, while other systems produce spectacular plans for estimated costs and schedules. However, one of the tools for making management decisions is a control system that describes authorized work, schedules near term small increments of the work and identifies all resources that are needed to accomplish the work. That is the planning phase. Then, as the work is in process, the system periodically reports the status of the schedule and the cost. Then a comparison of plan to actual is analyzed and any significant variances are identified for management action, should it be required. The WMCO/DOE contract has included the requirement to implement a management control system known as Cost and Schedule Control System Criteria (C/SCSC), which is a system defined by DOE Orders. Thus, the intent of Task 9 of the WMCO Transition Plan was to study the management control system in place at FMPC and to prepare a plan that would enhance the system. The objective of the revised management control system would be to provide a usable management tool to measure accomplishments to plans and to identify Problem areas where management attention is needed. The system would also satisfy C/SCSC. This document presents the reports on the work tasks formulated to be part of the management system studies.

Feed Materials Production Center. Final phase-in report volume 15 of 15 nine month program plan, October 25, 1985--December 31, 1985

Description: The purpose of the nine month program plan is to document all the activities that are scheduled for January-September, 1986 at FMPC. The intent of preparing the nine month program plan was to prepare a description of authorized work, budget the work on a month-to-month basis and schedule the completion of work. The milestones in the WMCO Transition Plan that included the gathering of FY86 work scope and budget information in addition to issuing the 9-month Program Plan assumed the existence of an existing budget program that priced and budgeted work monthly. In the absence of a budget computer program, an IBM P.C, with extended memory was leased to handle the volume of budget data. The planning concept in the nine month program was based on defining manageable work, scheduling small increments of work, and estimating the resources in labor, material and services required to accomplish the work. Then, as the work plan is implemented, the accomplishments and actual costs are reported against the plan and significant variances are identified for management action, if required. The two work tasks which were scheduled in the Transition Plan for preparing the Nine Month Program Plan were: (1) collect FY86-88 financial data, production levels and capital construction schedules for FMPC, and (2) coordinate the preparation of the program plan consistent with C/SCSC where practical.
