One more comment:
The Risk Factor “RF” (page 25) has four main elements.
RF = Geography*(Resources*Expectations) / Capabilities.
- if Geography risk is up, RF is up (makes sense)
- If we have high Expectations, the RF goes up (OK)
- if the supplier is very Capable, RF goes down (OK)
However, if Resources goes up (OEM putting more resources on teh program), I would intuitively expect the RF to also go down, yet the way the equation is written, the RF INCREASES depite adding more resources to the program.
