On the whole life cycle of risk management of electronic warfare equipment
|Keywords||electronic warfare full life cycle risk management|
Electronic warfare (EW) is a kind of modern information technology military equipments, it is different from ordinary production project. Its risk comes from the political factors of defense acquisition, the uncertainties of exterior environments, the complexity of equipments, the limited ability of equipment suppliers, etc. In the different periods of the EW equipment full life cycle, the categories of major risks and the prioritizing of risks are quietly different. In order to assure the equipments qualification, we should undertake the risk management and control actions in its full life cycle. Presently, many military equipments suppliers in our EW area are short of specialized and systematical risk management, yet to build a perfect risk management system. This article endeavors to solve how to undertake an effective risk management and attempt to establish a perfect risk management system in the EW equipment project.Based on the characteristics of EW equipment projects, such as system contracture complexity, high technology creativity, shortage of risk managing methods, combining with the writers study and EW equipments project management experience, this article tries to discuss risk identification, risk assessment, risk treating and risk monitoring in EW equipment projects. Firstly it builds a risk management structure, presents risk identification methods suitable for defense equipments research institutes, based on the comparison and analyzing of some commonly used risk evaluation techniques and methods, design a risk assessment model. Then, this article takes a certain project as an example, analyzes and sums up the risk listings in the different periods of the project full life cycle, tracking its risk management effects, in order to providing some references for the risk investigation of the following-up EW equipment projects.
