Although it is ground-based simulator, know-how and wisdom that is gained in the operational use of all…show more content…
It outlines how risk management activities will be performed, recorded, and monitored throughout the lifecycle of the project and provides practices for recording and prioritizing risks. The intended audience of this document is the project team, project stakeholders and management. 1.3 STAKEHOLDERS IN THE RISK MANAGEMENT PLAN The KC-135 ATS Simulator stakeholders form one of the largest in the Air Force. It has a broad group of personnels with specific roles and responsibilities associated with the design, roll-outs, operation and maintenance of the training system. 3 RISK MANAGEMENT PROCEDURE The project manager of this KC 135 ATS Simulator will work with the project team and project stakeholders to ensure that risks are actively identified, analyzed, and managed throughout the life of the project. Risks will be identified as early as possible in the project so as to minimize their impact. The steps for accomplishing this are outlined in the following sections. The whole procedures are also summed up in the following figure. 2.1 RISK IDENTIFICATION Risk identification will involve the project team, appropriate stakeholders, and will include an evaluation of environmental factors, organizational culture and the project management plan including the project scope. Careful attention will be given to the project deliverables, assumptions, constraints, WBS, cost/effort estimates, resource plan, and other key project documents. A
