FIU’s Applied Research Center (ARC) is supporting the U.S. Department of Energy Headquarters in its mission to gather, organize, and display waste forecast data from across the DOE complex. The WIMS website can be found at
The implementation of the accelerated cleanup programs has created significant potential technical impediments that must be overcome. The schedule compression will require close coordination and a comprehensive review and prioritization of the barriers that may impede treatment and disposition of the waste streams at each site. Many issues related to site waste treatment and disposals have now become potential critical path issues under the accelerated schedules. To support each site in succeeding with the implementation of their respective accelerated programs, DOE expressed a need for a web-based system to gather, organize, and present waste forecast data to allow identification of volumes, material classes, disposition sites, choke points and barriers.
