Project Hanford

doing first things first

The cleanup of the Hanford Site is as significant an engineering and managerial challenge as was the Manhattan Project that created it, and both projects depended largely on the application of good project management techniques. The first step was to build a baseline of work that was technically feasible, publicly acceptable, and realistically achievable. This article describes briefly how the technical requirements were defined and technical baseline built, as well as how the schedule was determined and the costs estimated. These were the foundations upon which the complete technical baseline, tied to schedule and budget, was built.
