Abstract

Highly complex bespoke engineering products require upgrades during their long service life. These engineering changes can be risky due to the absence of an engineering baseline and/or multiple undocumented operational changes. They present significant challenges to the engineering contractor in terms of budget overruns, schedule impacts/delays, technical failures and ultimately a disappointed customer. Current risk management methods can be subjective and inaccurate. This paper outlines methodology to potentially predict, identify and visualize risks in a strategic structure which can ultimately lead to establishing necessary risk mitigation actions to significantly reduce and manage the risk of complex engineering system upgrade projects.
