Title: National accounts manager: Design study. Final report

Abstract

This document addresses a typical application -- that of a hypothetical nationwide chain of restaurants. The design study uses the Reference Model for Open Distributed Processing (RM-ODP) as a guideline for specifying standard systems. Far from limiting the study`s usefulness to a particular type of National Account, this guideline is highly portable, and will be useful, with slight modifications only, in similarly specifying systems for other types of customers. A brief list of other applications could include many ``campus`` environments -- government agencies and university systems as well as manufacturers, airports, railyards, ski resorts, apartment complexes, hotels, hospitals, telecommunication facilities, oil fields, irrigation systems, municipal water/sewer systems, and so on.

  • This report provides technical documentation of the methodology used in updating the National Energy Accounts data base. The National Energy Accounts represent a balanced, annual account of all sources and uses of energy in the U.S. economy from 1958 through 1985. The detailed data base (available separately from the U.S. Department of Commerce) includes 131 sectors of the economy, 16 functional use categories, and 36 energy products. Annual levels of consumption, production and inventory are reported in BTU's, physical units, current dollar value, and constant (1982) dollar value.
  • Table A consolidates data on domestic energy sources, energy imports, consumption of energy products, exports of energy products, additions to inventories of energy products, and energy losses (waste heat in power generation, other losses in energy transformations, and storage and distribution losses). Table B, Energy Balance Account, is designed as a consolidation of more detailed accounts--Sources, Uses, Inventory, and Energy Conversion Accounts--expressed in Btus. Table C, Product Balance (Apparent Consumption) is calculated as the sum of domestic production and imports minus exports, inventory changes, material inputs to energy conversion processes, and storage and distribution losses. Table E is a consolidatedmore » account in which the material inputs and outputs from each energy conversion process are examined as well as the fuels and power consumed by these processes. Losses in each conversion process are calculated, as is the total energy dissipated, so that the net output of energy by each conversion process may be calculated. Data on products taxonomy, sector taxonomy, and functional use taxonomy are compiled in three appendices. (MCW)« less
  • Volume IV is a continuation of the statistical tables on the national energy accounts for energy flows in the U.S., 1947--1972. Part 3 of this volume continues Table F, Energy Consumption by Sector, with Energy Products and Functional Use Detail, specifically tabulating data for the years 1954 and 1947. Data are compiled on products taxonomy, sector taxonomy, and functional use taxonomy in three appendices. (MCW)
  • Volume III is a continuation of the statistical tables on the national energy accounts for energy flows in the U.S., 1947--1972. Table G, Energy Consumption by Sector and Function, relates the functional uses of energy, aggregated across all energy products, to the detailed energy sectors. Table H, Consumption by Function and Product, is a matrix which relates each detailed energy product to the functional uses associated with consumption--detailed types of fuel and power use and detailed types of material input use to non-energy conversion processes. Data on products taxonomy, sector taxonomy, and functional use taxonomy are compiled in three appendices.more » (MCW)« less
