Abstract : The study describes a method for analyzing the manufacturing industry in order to develop an estimate of the cost of hardening economic resources against nuclear blast effects. The Standard Industrial Classifications are related to certain physical (hardness) characteristics of the plant and equipment associated with the product. Classes of manufactured products are translated into the classes of equipment which make them and the equipment is evaluated in terms of hardness characteristics. This reduces both the number of plant and equipment categories related to product classifications and the number of samples that need be evaluated for hardening costs. In this volume the relative occurences of the various characteristics throughout industry are investigated for the purpose of grouping similarly equipped industries into identifiable families. This volume includes the methodology for using the data to establish the groupings and contains lists of the family association of each of 381 4-digit industries. (Author)
