This thesis presents an analysis of the current hazardous waste management re-engineering project in progress at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL). The primary goal of the re-engineering is to streamline the hazardous waste storage infrastructure through the closure of a large number of existing storage facilities and utilizing a smaller number of Consolidation" facilities. This goal is accomplished through both waste reduction efforts and early classification of wastes using a Waste Evaluation Form (WEF). Storage need is a function of the amount of waste generated and the time that those wastes remain in storage prior to disposal. Data analysis techniques are used to analyze the quantities of hazardous waste that have been generated at LLNL, as well as the amount of time that these wastes have traditionally remained in on- site storage facilities awaiting disposal. Mathematical and simulation models have been formulated to determine waste storage needs. The results of these models appear reasonable when compared with initial reports from re-engineering efforts being implemented at LLNL, and are used to form recommendations for further re-engineering efforts
