The risk evaluation program REP is a continuing program whose prime charter is to identify, evaluate, and reduce the risks to the DCDRS program. Risks to a program that are not analyzed and corrected can cause cost overruns, schedule slippages, and performance degradation. The purpose of the evaluation is to identify the risks as soon as possible and give guidance to the program management so decisions can be made to alleviate the risk. This will prevent the risk from causing an impact on performance, schedule, or cost. This evaluation will be a continuing program to run concurrently with the development, prototype build, test, and production. Its function will be to identify risks as they become evident and recommend corrective action. The scope of the risk evaluation program will be preventive in nature rather than remedial.
