Procurement control: The graded approach

Description: The ability of an organization to purchase goods and services is essential to the successful operation of any business. Fitness for use and on-time delivery is the goal of the procurement process. Although one`s choice of suppliers has a significant impact on the outcome of this process, efficient execution of the purchase requisitioning activity builds the foundation for On Time Delivery of: The Right Product, To The Right Place, Meeting The Specified Requirements, and In Good Condition. This paper discusses how the Savannah River Site accomplishes this task.

A standard audit trail format

Description: The central role of audit trails, or (more properly) logs, in security monitoring needs little description, for it is too well known for any to doubt it. Auditing, or the analysis of logs, is a central part of security not only in computer system security but also in analyzing financial and other non-technical systems. As part of this process, it is often necessary to reconcile logs from different sources. This speaks of a need for a standard logging format. A standard log format robust enough to meet the needs of heterogeneity, transportability across various network protocols, and flexibility sufficient to meet a variety of needs in very different environments must satisfy two basic properties: extensibility and portability. This report presents the author`s proposed format for a standard log record. In section 3, he shows how and where the translation should be done, and in section 4 he demonstrates how log records from several disparate systems would be put into this format. Section 5 concludes with some observations and suggestions for future work.

Universal requisition for waste data collection

Description: Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) has developed a data management tool for information gathering that encompasses all types of waste generated by the site. It is referred to as the Universal Requisition. It can be used to record information for the following types of waste: non-hazardous, hazardous, low level radioactive, mixed, transuranic (TRU), and TRU mixed wastestreams. It provides the salient information needed for the safe handling, storage, and disposal of waste, and satisfies our regulatory, record keeping, and reporting requirements. There are forty two numbered fields on the requisition and several other fields for signatures, compatibility codes, internal tracking numbers, and other information. Not all of these fields are applicable to every type of waste. As an aid to using the Universal requisition, templates with the applicable fields highlighted in color were produced and distributed. There are six different waste type templates. Each is highlighted in a different color.

Finite sparse matrix techniques. [Solution of linear systems Ax = b]

Description: A unified theory of finite sparse matrix techniques based on a literature search and new results is presented. It is intended to aid in computational work and symbolic manipulation of large sparse systems of linear equations. The theory relies on the bijection property of bipartite graph and rectangular Boolean matrix representation. The concept of perfect elimination matrices is extended from the classification under similarity transformations to that under equivalence transformations with permutation matrices. The reducibility problem is treated with a new and simpler proof than found in the literature. A number of useful algorithms are described. The minimum deficiency algorithms are extended to the new classification, where the latter required a different technique of proof. 13 figures, 7 tables.

Writer's Guide for technical procedures

Description: A primary objective throughout the Department of Energy (DOE) complex is that operations be conducted in a deliberate and controlled manner with emphasis upon recognition and maintenance of the facility-specific safety envelope. One critical element of maintaining the safety envelope is procedures. DOE is providing guidance through this and other writer's guides to assist procedure writers across the DOE complex in producing accurate, complete, and usable procedures that promote safe and efficient operations in keeping with such DOE Orders as 5480.19, Conduct of Operations for DOE Facilities'', 5480.5, Safety of Nuclear facilities'', and 5480.6, Safety of Department of Energy-Owned Nuclear Reactors''. This Writer's Guide addresses the content, format, and style of technical procedures (procedures that prescribe production, operation of equipment and facilities, and maintenance activities) and is intended to be applied in a manner appropriate to the individual facility, 15 refs.

Centrality of paths and vertices in a graph: cores and pits

Description: As criteria for the selection of a site at which to locate a facility in a graph or network, measures of the suitability of a vertex v include the eccentricity e(v), the distance d(v), and, when the graph is a tree, the branch weight bw(v). A vertex at which function e, d, or bw is minimized is called a center, a median, or a (branch weight) centroid, respectively. For a tree T the functions e, d, and bw are convex functions on vertex set V(T); and, in general, they measure how central a vertex is relative to the other vertices. The nature of the facility to be constructed (such as a pipeline) could necessitate selecting a structure (such as a path) rather than just a point at which to locate the facility. Similarly, the facility may be required to service structures or areas within the graph. Functions e, d, and bw can be applied to paths P in the graph and (minimum) paths P for which e(P), d(P), and bw(P) are minimized are called path centers, cores, and spines, respectively. With emphasis on these central paths, central structures are examined. 3 figures.

Hourly variability of sample chemistry during precipitation events and its relationship to meteorological parameters

Description: Data from hourly precipitation samples taken at Brookhaven National Laboratory from June 1976 to May 1979 were analyzed to determine the hourly variability within precipitation events with respect to the event means for each of the chemical measurements. These included conductivity and concentrations of hydrogen, nitrogen, sulfate, ammonium, chloride, and sodium ions. The coefficient of variation (S.D./anti X) was found for each variable in each event of three hours or more. Events were then classified by length, season, precipitation rate, and by meteorological parameters and the variability of the coefficient of variation computed for each class. Results are presented in a series of tables.

Mental disorders and consanguinity comparison of first-cousin marriages and matched unrelated marriages

Description: Mental disorders have long been known to run in families. How and why has still not been agreed upon. However, most psychiatrists probably agree that there is no unitary cause, either environmental or hereditary, for the common mental disorders. In each case a number of etiological factors are at work to a variable extent, social, psychological, biochemical and pathophysiological. These include hereditary mechanism, such as predisposition which under certain stress (Rosenthal 1970) can result in a disease. The present paper is intended to give some additional data for the further discussion of the issues involved. It is a part of a larger study of first-cousin marriages and their children. The purpose of this larger study is to investigate various genetic markers among these families as well as their fertility, morbidity and mortality. Here the occurrence of mental disorders in these families will be analyzed and compared with that in the general population. If recessive hereditary traits are involved in the etiology of mental disorders an increased frequence should be expected among children of such families.

Microwave measurements of the ETA accelerating cavity

Description: Microwave measurements of the ETA accelerating cavities have shown eleven resonances in the frequency range of 0 to 850 MHz. These modes have been identified according to their similarity with the modes of a cylindrical cavity. Measurements of the Q's of the modes yielded values from 14 to 70 and transverse shunt impedances (R/sub perpendicular/Q) of 9 to 12..cap omega... In particular, beam breakup mode (TM/sub 110/) has a Q of 20 to 40 and a transverse impedance of 9..cap omega... A later report will describe proposed modifications to the cavity for the ATA accelerator that reduce the Q's substantially.

Using PL/SQL to automatically enhance CASE*Generator 2.0 generated forms

Description: The SQL{trademark} Forms generator in CASE{trademark} Generator can generate forms with many useful capabilities. Generated forms can be further enhanced by the use of the CASE{trademark} Generator forms template. The template can be used to make these capabilities easily included in every form in a system. However, there are times when capabilities need to be added to all of the forms in a system, that cannot be implemented with the generator or template. This is especially true when generated block and field level triggers have to be modified. This paper describe how PL/SQL can be used to modify the generated forms. CASE{trademark} Generator can be configured to perform these modifications automatically. Three examples of modifications that have been made using this technique will also be detailed.
