Title: From Radtrack to eMWaste(r) G2 process-based integration

This paper provides a process-based examination of the integration of two separate but related software applications into Sandia National Laboratories’ (SNL’s) Radioactive and Mixed Waste Management Facility’s (RMWMF) data management system. First, data collection will be upgraded through the use of a new web-based Waste Description and Disposal Request (WDDR), which SNL personnel whose work creates radioactive and hazardous waste (generators) will use to characterize dozens of specific attributes of each waste parcel. Second, a commercial software package for data storage and manipulation — eMWaste® G2 by Attention IT — will replace two existing software applications and will track all radioactive and mixed waste at Sandia. Integrating these applications into a web-based system will give the RMWMF increased system flexibility, reduced reliance on key personnel, and improved document control, traceability and efficiency. To meet these goals and ensure the applications are developed in an efficient, quality-oriented environment, it is critical to first conduct a thorough evaluation of the affected processes. This paper will analyze the processes supported by the new applications and the requirements for a successful integration. A comprehensive analysis of both project flow and data management requirements, illustrated through original flow diagrams and other charts, will provide supportmore » to the development team and programmers as they work to integrate the applications into the new system.« less
