ASC Business Model
The Advanced Simulation and Computing (ASC) Program is a national program
that enables the Stockpile Stewardship mission. ASC creates simulation tools
to be used in concert with expert scientific judgment to certify that the stockpile
is safe, reliable, and secure.
The Business Model [PDF, 612 KB]
was developed to ensure that achieving the ASC vision and mission is the focus
of the ASC Program. The products of the national Work Breakdown Structure (nWBS)
reflect the salient elements of the program mission—to develop the essential
modern computational tools with input and support from theory and experiment.
The nWBS for the ASC Program begins at Level 2. Levels 2 through 4 are shown
in the following diagram. For additional information, see:
