Abstract: A system engineering approach is being applied to organize and develop relations among the people, hardware, and software of the Transportation Operations System (TOS), which will be a component of the Federal Waste Management System, being developed for the U.S. Department of Energy's Office of Civilian Radioactive Waste Management (DOE/OCRWM). The five major TOS subsystems are (1) Planning and Control, (2) Carriage, (3) Servicing and Maintenance, (4) Field Operations, and (5) Casks. TOS development objectives include flexibility to meet fluctuating demands over the lifetime of the project (over 40 years); proven capability and integration of all subsystems and components; ability to meet waste generator needs; and ability to match transport capabilities to Federal Waste Management System fuel requirements and waste receipt rates.
