PRID can provide an excellent tool to identify and manage risk… It identifies all the areas that need to be considered across the entire project and provides for complete view of risks….’

* Roger Herdy, Sr. Systems Engineer, Government Energy Solutions, Inc.

A long-term program initiated by the Department of Energy (DOE) called Supercritical Transformational Electric Power (STEP) began in 2014. Government Energy Solutions has established a systems engineering construct.

“The Sysenex tool, Program Risk ID, was the tool of choice for the risk assessment.

The STEP customer base at GES is benefiting from the results of this tool, which has allowed resources to be effectively allocated to the risk areas identified by PRID”, and “It is established that this tool will continue to be used in subsequent phases of the STEP program.”

* Dave Hall, INCOSE ESEP

True or False: Risks are unique to each program or project.

False. Our analysis of hundreds of programs revealed a common set of risks. This risk set enables a consistent, repeatable and comparable risk yardstick for one or many programs.

Through its PRID tool, Sysenex offers a well-researched risk ontology as thorough as any in its discipline. It is the product of exhaustive research; just the compilation of this ontology is a notable achievement. But beyond that, the ontology is set in a tool that instantiates the process by which the risk managers can take the best advantage of the experience it represents. The PRID tool leads the risk manager through the risk ontology allowing the thoughtful consideration of any reasonably conceivable risk in the context of the present project.

“1. How does a project manager, project engineer, or risk manager deal with the realities of a project’s educational and training deficiencies, levels of domain knowledge and experience, and internal/external sources of risk?
2. How can the project supplement these deficiencies and improve its chances of success?
3. One solution is to employ… a tool to leverage their own finite knowledge, capabilities, and experience to identify risks through a process of elimination and prioritization.”
