- Technical progress during the first year of the ''Systems Analysis for Materials Optimization,'' has more than met the goals set in the project proposal. The system's methodology originally developed by the University of Chicago group has been refined, extended and applied with the following results: a set of studies was made of energy/materials demand relations for the energy-intensive basic industries manufacturing iron and steel, aluminum, copper, pulp and paper and cement and concrete; a methodology handbook was started; and methods that provide a basis for choosing the most efficient mix of process analysis and input/output analysis to achieve a desired level of accuracy were analyzed. New methods for optimizing process designs, and for developing effective ways of realistic quantification of the potential efficiencies that R and D could attain were achieved.
