Abstract:

Risk is the potential of future uncertainties in achieving program performance goals and objectives within established baselines of cost, performance and schedule constraints. A risk may be mitigated to prevent it from occurring or reduce its impact if it occurs. If the item being described has already occurred in real time, it is an ISSUE and not a RISK. The words IF, THEN and MAY in a problem statement indicates that something has not yet occurred, but has the potential to occur in the future, hence it is a risk.
