Radioactive and Hazardous Waste Management Applications
Three problems are common to most complex environmental modeling efforts: they’re uncertain, multifaceted, and hard to communicate. Overcoming these challenges is especially important when modeling the performance of proposed and existing radioactive waste management facilities. Graphical simulation tools can help represent uncertainties, integrate all aspects of the system, and ease the presentation of complex models.

Freeing Six Sigma from the “Data Shuffle”
Paying skilled professionals to massage, scrub, and manipulate data is a huge waste of valuable resources. And while having clean data is essential to driving Six Sigma projects, the act of getting that data adds absolutely no business value. That’s why organizations that focus first on making accurate, actionable data available in real time have more effective Six Sigma programs.

Streamlining for Success: The Lean Supply Chain
When flexibility and speed are requisites for success, it’s the lean organization that leads the race. World-class manufacturing organizations know the value of focusing on the lean fundamentals: eliminating waste, simplifying processes, and continuously improving. By pursuing lean strategies—optimizing inventory and streamlining manufacturing processes—they can reduce inefficiencies and costs in their production processes, and improve customer responsiveness.
are essential to eliminating waste and improving cash flow. World-class manufacturers typically maintain low inventory levels, and accomplish this through the use of technology and a finely tuned inventory replenishment system. Fast, effective communication, within the organization and with trading partners, is a required complement to an efficient inventory replenishment system. Electronic communication now makes near real-time connectivity possible at every level of the supply chain. When flexibility an
