    Interested as we are in the process of establishing second sources.

    One more comment:

    The Risk Factor “RF” (page 25) has four main elements.

    RF = Geography*(Resources*Expectations) / Capabilities.

    Arithmetically:
    - 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.

    Counter-intuitive.
