The New Chemical Management System is Almost Here!
By Teresa Larson
A little over a month ago we updated you on the status of SLACs
long-awaited chemical management system. We are now only four weeks away
from full site-wide implementation!
There have been many accomplishments since our last update. One of these
is the successful completion of the chemical move from SLAC Stores to
the Haas hub in Gilroy. The transfer went without a hitch, and those
chemicals previously stored on site can be ordered through the Haas
on-line system (see link below).
Additionally, the number of workgroups ordering their chemicals through
the on-line system has increased to 12, with another six to come on line
within the next one to two weeks.
Cost savings have already been realized for several workgroups and many
customers report that they are very pleased to have a full-time, on-site
Haas resource to handle their orders and field issues quickly and
Also, the Chemical Management System Team performed a full, on-site and
off-site inventory of all SLAC-owned compressed gas cylinders. Site
safety will continue to improve as unsafe cylinders identified during
the inventory process are removed and/or replaced with newer, safer gas
Two important milestones to report on:
1. July 20 and 21
CMS Project/Haas User Training will be held on site for those
individuals with operator privileges in the Haas system.
2. August 1
The facility-wide go live date. Remember, everyone who initiates a
chemical transaction on or after this date must use the Haas on-line
