The investigation involved searching for efficient methods of tracking costs and volume of hazardous and non-hazardous wastes using industrial engineering techniques. The hazardous materialwaste management software ExecuTrax from Wixel, Inc. was chosen for its capabilities for an optimum management of information. This report describes the logistics of implementing the software at the NASSCO shipyard.
