Title: Enhancing Reliability of the Weapons Material Waste Disposition Process in the Assembly/Disassembly Operations Facility

Abstract

High quality weapons material waste dispositioning at Y-12 is crucial to the overall public perception of meeting the CNS government missions. Weapons material waste disposition requirements are an after-thought as perceived by Production personnel. Building waste dispositioning activities in the production system at the point of generation will increase the reliability of meeting requirements daily. The ultimate goal is to build in easy to understand processes at the point of generation in the production work without negatively impacting schedules. Measurements to evaluate sustainability of production processes and ensure reliable information will be suggested. Ultimately, this project is an effort to protect the environment by creating highly reliable weapons material waste dispositioning processes at the point of generation. Defining the process at the point of generation ultimately decreases variation and increases reliability of correctly dispositioning waste. Utilization of an effective and improved weapons material waste dispositioning process will ensure decrease in defective product dispositioning, decrease incorrect disposition of waste, increase set-up times for disposition work, decrease cost of production due to less down time and increase the percentage of waste dispositioning jobs completed in a timely manner.
