I'm trying to explain the use of a 240 uniform title in a bibliographic record 
clearly to my staff.   I have a tenuous grasp on uniform titles and welcome any 
direction to specific training in depth about the choices of MARC tags in 
different situations.

I understand that the title in question "Nuclear weapons : ‡b factors leading 
to cost increases with the uranium processing facility" (OCLC863158972 for 
those with access) is the first of a predicted quarterly report.  Is it 
disingenuous to ask whether it was appropriate to create this 240 in the record 
for the first of the series when RDA LC-PCC PS for says under General: 
 "Do not predict a conflict".     

My understanding is that one waited until the 2nd report (the conflict) 
appeared in order to make the uniform title in this situation.  Or 
alternatively; create a serial record.

Can someone clarify?
Many thanks.
