The Systems Integration Modeling System (SIMS) is an analysis tool for the detailed evaluation of the structure and related performance of the Federal Waste Management System (FWMS) and its interface with waste generators. It is used for evaluations in support of system-level decisions as to FWMS configurations, the allocation, sizing, balancing and integration of functions among elements, and the establishment of system-preferred waste selection and sequencing methods and other operating strategies. SIMS includes major analysis submodels which (i) quantify the detailed characteristics of individual waste items, loaded casks and waste packages, (ii) simulate the detailed logistics of handling and processing discrete waste items and packages, and (iii) perform detailed cost evaluations.
