Transcript

  • 1. Waste Management Symposium — Phoenix March 4th, 2014 Howard Z. Skolnik, President W. Dean Ricker, VP Sales
  • 2. For 25+ years, Skolnik has been manufacturing steel drums for low-level waste. The drums we supply to the various DOE Contractors are the removable-head, or openhead, style with a bolt ring closure system.
  • 3. The majority of drums supplied by Skolnik to DOE Contractors meet the applicable requirements of 49 CFR 178 Subpart L—Non-bulk Performance-Oriented Packaging Standards and Subpart M—Testing of Non-bulk Packagings and Packages. These packagings are manufactured in accordance with the Skolnik Nuclear Quality Assurance 1 Program.
  • 4. Challenges: Pre-Qualification • NQA Quality Program • Unique Program Costs with no commitment from sites. • Ability to purchase from nonNQA manufacturers by using a reseller NQA Program. • Ability to purchase different levels of QA, to be determined by each site. • Many of the NQA requirements do not effect the quality of the product, it’s all about paper!
  • 5. Challenges: Inventory • DOE issues purchase orders which result in inventory purchases. Then release dates are postponed. • Sites specify different product components for standard products. • Bolts (for example)
  • 6. Challenges: Staffing • Training to NQA difficult due to lack of in-field NQA personnel. • Maintaining an NQA program has perpetual costs without perpetual DOE commitment.
  • 7. Challenges: Audits • Multitude of 2-3 day audits per year. • Individual requirements per site. • Effects of invoking NQA on performance testing. • Invoking NQA requirements with no purchase commitment.
  • 8. Challenges: Manufacturing • Excessiveness — Weld Certs • Scope Creep • Inconsistency of specs between sites, and spec revisions. • Qualifying Sub-Tier Manufacturers
  • 9. Suggested Improvements • • • • Universal Audit acceptance Common Spec’s for Drums Consider cost impact on requests Vendor Recourse Procedure
  • 10. Improvement requires persistence, participation, profit, and patience. Our thanks to Steve and Ashok
