Subject: RE: SWAMI software??
actually sat in on a presentation of this software when I was in Texas.
It was a pretty neat tool and a workshop was held for it for the petroleum
industry back in the early 1990's when I was there, we sponsored it at our
school. I have not heard it catch on since that time. Maybe it's
time to bring it out again?
I have a copy of the software and the users
manual (EPA/625/11-91/004) of "Strategic Waste Minimization Initiative"
(SWAMI) v.2.0, "A Software Tool to Aid in Process Analysis for Pollution
Prevention". Beats me where I got it, but the software seems to
work. It builds process diagrams and asks lots of questions about P2
options, based on user input. Seems possibly helpful to the right
Question: Does ANYone have experience
actually using this software in real world applications? Have you even
heard of this software? It seems to have died a quiet death after its
release, but the idea is great, and hey, it was made in 1991 when you could
put an entire program on just one floppy disk! You young people won't
believe it, but its true...
Thanks in advance
