Information : Centralized Waste Tracking and Management
The Department of Energy (DOE), Oak Ridge Operations is required to comply with the Tennessee Oversight Agreement which includes maintaining a comprehensive waste tracking system. Individual sites at Oak Ridge had their own methods of tracking with no reliable electronic central reporting point. The problem required cost effective and efficient standardization of data. Oak Ridge has developed a centralized reporting system to receive waste management data from site systems through the use of batch uploads. Several LANs have been consolidated and standardized on a wide area network which uploads information daily. This effort complies with the agreement with the state of Tennessee and also has improved efficiency and decreased waste tracking costs.
There is currently an information exchange among DOE sites, and users are interacting and cooperating with each other, further enhancing productivity.
