TRIMS provides insight as a knowledge-based tool that measures
technical risk management rather than cost and schedule. Cost and schedule
overruns are downstream indicators of technical problems. Programs generally
have had process problems long before the technical problem is identified.
To avoid this progression, TRIMS operates as a process-oriented tool based
on a solid Systems Engineering approach. Process analysis and monitoring
provide the earliest possible indication of potential problems. Early
identification provides the time necessary to apply corrective actions,
thereby preventing problems and mitigating their impact. TRIMS is extremely
user-friendly and tailorable. This tool identifies areas of risk, tracks
program goals and responsibilities, and can generate a variety of reports
to meet the userís needs.
TRIMS is a Windows application that runs under Windows XP, Windows Vista, and Windows 7.
