Processed-based risk management came about as

a result of the acquisition problems that occurred

in the ’60s and ’70s.

to study the issue.

Some Things To Consider
  • Defense Science Board Studies Determined that 80% of all Programs that Fail, Fail for Engineering not Technology Reasons
  • Example: N43 Reports that Over 65% of all Fleet Reliability Problems are Due to Inadequate Design
  • February 1998 GAO Report to the Subcommittee on Acquisition & Technology, Committee on Armed Services, U. S. Senate
    • Since 1975 Schedule Overruns Average 24%
    • Weapon Systems Overruns Cost 20% - 40%
  • March 2005 GAO Report:
    • Average Cost Increase Will be 28.5% in Only 4 Years
    • Reason: “Armed services order hardware with unproven technology,

with too little time allowed for perfecting that technology before contractors attempt to insert it into weapons systems...”

  • With Acquisition Reform and Performance Specifications, We Must Monitor the Engineering Process to Understand Program Risks

Do Not Get Technology Tunnel Vision

To do “Risk Management” you also have to do planning and tracking: establish a plan to mitigate your risks, and then track it to ensure that the plan is being followed, and that it is having the desired effect!

Some of the benefits of TRIMS’ flexibility.

  • Identify Risks Before they Become Problems
  • Build YOUR Knowledge into TRIMS
    • Use the Systems Engineering Knowledge Base as a Starting Point for A Good Engineering Process
  • Create a Concrete, Repeatable Process for Evaluating & Comparing Programs & Contractors
  • Ease the Learning Curve for New Employees
  • Retain Knowledge of Lost Employees
  • Share Knowledge
  • To Maximize Benefits of Using TRIMS
    • Apply as Early as Possible in Program Life
    • Apply to All Subcontractors, Divisions & Vendors Involved
    • Use Tool Regularly to Prioritize Resources & Make Decisions
