If the combination of author + title is identical to another work then a 240
would be needed to differentiate this work from others. Typically only a
year is used, not year month date. You only break the conflict when there
already is one, not when you expect/suspect there will be one. I'm wonder
why you don't just catalog it as a serial though, in which case there won't
be a conflict. Also, you don't know for sure that Trimble will be the
creator of each of the quarterly reports.

Subject: [RDA-L] 240 uniform title
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
188.8.131.52 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?
