dc.description.abstractThe purpose of this thesis is to conduct a risk assessment and analysis for the M109 l55mm Self Propelled Howitzer (SPH) Fleet Management Pilot Program. The objective of this program is to reengineer the fleet's logistical support system by outsourcing those functions which make sense and that can be performed more efficiently by private industry. This innovative approach places one contractor, or Fleet Manager, in charge of sustaining the entire fleet, The researcher used the Concept of Operations (CONOPS) Document for the program as the primary tool to conduct the risk assessment and analysis. Using the CONOPS Document as a preliminary Work Breakdown Structure, the researcher developed two surveys to identify and assess the risks associated with the program. These surveys enabled the researcher to develop a Risk Watchlist that identifies and prioritizes the most severe cost and performance risks. The researcher utilized this watchlist to develop Risk Charts to analyze the potential impact of these risk events. The Risk Charts graphically display both the risk events identified in the program and where they might occur. Developing similar Risk Watchlists and Risk Charts can assist DoD Project Managers in controlling and mitigating the risks associated with their programsen_US
