An ancillary benefit was to determine the effectiveness of the TQM techniques being promulgated within the BRLARL. The workshop defined the problem and the process involved in reaching a specific solution. Guided by that process, the workshop identified tools to be developed that would result in a methodology for component PKH evaluation generally applicable throughout the VLD. These tools included Data for Sensitive Areas, Component Kill Criteria and Component PkH The possibility of combining the one database was observed A museum of actual hardware for training of inexperienced analysts general computer code, built upon the existing PKGEN, with augmentations as noted. There was general agreement that the workshop was quite a success. Unexpected agreement was reached on a solution to a fairly complicated and personalized problem.
