New Chemical Management System is Coming!
By Butch Byers
SLACís long-awaited rollout of its new chemical management
system (CMS) is about ready to begin. In fact, for nine of the
approximately 40 SLAC workgroups that use chemicals in the course of
their daily activities, the rollout has already begun!

The CMS project will change the way SLAC orders,
receives and manages chemicals on a site-wide basis. The project has
proceeded through the planning and pilot stages, and two major schedule
milestones are coming up:
This is the date on which
responsibility for providing SLAC staff with chemicals and cylinder
gases that are currently Stores items will shift from SLAC Stores to
SLACís CMS provider, Haas TCM. Subsequent to this date, requestors
requiring Stores chemicals will place their orders using Haasís on-line
ordering system. Such orders will be delivered to the specified location
the next business day, much like Corporate Express works. An open house
may be held at Stores the week prior to the transfer and if so will be
announced in SLAC Today.
This is the facility-wide go
live date. Everyone who initiates a chemical transaction on or after
this date will be required to use the Haas TCM platform.
The SLAC CMS Implementation Team, comprised of several representatives
from each division, has worked together for the last year to make this
project a reality. In the event you have questions or concerns about the
upcoming milestones, please contact one of the following divisional
SSRL: Stephanie Carlson, Todd
RES: Jim McDonald, Bob Kirby
TECH: Karen Holtemann, Mary Regan
DIR: Rich Jones
ESH: Butch Byers, Matt Padilla
BSD: Tom Murphy
Further information about the
project, including a list of FAQs, is available at the project website (http://www-group.slac.stanford.edu/esh/cms/).
Approximately 100 SLAC staff members have operator privileges within the
Haas system. A list of these operators and their departments is also
posted on the project website.
To be added to the
system, please contact either your divisional representative, Matt
Padilla (ES&H) at Ext. 3861), or Haasís on-site customer service
representative, Ray Barbara (Ext. 8776).
