Title: Transitioning Local Area Network Material Accounting System (LANMAS) to Meet International Reporting Requirements

The LANMAS is a nuclear material accounting system that was constructed and is being maintained at the U.S. Department of Energy's Savannah River Site. The purpose of this paper is to communicate the results of a software enhancement activity that incorporated an International Atomic Energy Agency reporting capability into the Local Area Network Material Accounting System and discuss some of the problems encountered during the process. During this activity we discovered a significant number of differences between the domestic and Agency reporting requirements. Some of these differences are obvious because they address the description of the nuclear material or a processing characteristic of the material. Other differences are quite subtle. One example is the movement of material between material balance areas. For domestic reporting. this transfer has no significance and, therefore, it is not reported. However, the move is of great significance to the Agency and considerable transactional information must be communicated.
