Risk assessment and and risk management of high technology product development
Poorly managed high technology product development programs have resulted in schedule delays, cost overruns, unmet performance requirements, and a loss of the market. The use of risk assessment and management techniques and practices in a systematic manner can reduce the risks associated with the development program. This research report first provides a definition and description of the concept of risk and then describes characteristics of the high technology product development process. Risk as it pertains to this process is discussed and a description of many of the techniques available today to assess and manage these associated risks is presented. The report concludes with a summary of these techniques presented in a matrix format which explains when and how to use them with emphisis placed upon their application to high technology product development. Following the matrices, a proposed area of further research is suggested.
