GAO provided information on the computer-based tritium impact model it developed to support its June 1990 classified report on the management of tritium supplies.

GAO presented information on: (1) the support pipeline for the nuclear weapons tritium reservoir exchange process; (2) the measurement of the impact of efficiencies in the tritium reservoir supply pipeline; (3) how a user would exercise the computer model; (4) how it integrated various source data in its database; and (5) the operational source code to implement the model on a microcomputer or minicomputer.
