This is a one-day technical seminar spearheaded by Portland State University's Systems Engineering department and sponsored by the IEEE Oregon Section.
The seminar will present:
- Technical risk in the system-product life cycle
- Risk and systems engineering (technical vs. programmatic risk)
- Quick overview of standards and maturity models
- Techniques to identify risk and structure decisions (e.g., influence diagrams, fundamental objectives, decision trees)
- Methods of calculating and ranking technical risks (impact estimation, expected loss, 80/20 Rule, Delphi Techniques
- Decision making tools (under certainty and uncertainty, Utility Theory Max/min, min/max, regrets, payoff table, Bayesian methods)
- Risk modeling and estimation software tools
- Overview of common hardware and software risks
- Mitigating technical risk - TPMs, resource margins, interface management, test margins, legacy systems (HW and SW), product selections, judging pedigree and maturity, technology forecasting
- Multi-objective trade-off studies (performance, redundancy, security, etc.)
- Pairwise comparisons and the Saaty Scale
- Acquisition alternatives (make, buy or hybrid), outsourcing and sub-contractor selection
- Creativity and decision making
