Evaluation of Quantification of Margins and Uncertainties Methodology for Assessing and Certifying the Reliability of the Nuclear Stockpile
In addition, the study committee had access to a wide range of published documents about QMU, including all available reviews of its implementation by the laboratories.17 Both unclassified and classified (at the secret restricted data level) material were made available to the committee.
