Abstract : The purpose of this analysis was to evaluate the risks involved in the award of a production contract for the production of 192 TOW Cobra aircraft in Sep 72 rather than Jan 74. A risk analysis team was formed, support from various offices of USAAVSCOM, USAMICOM, and USAWECOM. The team determined the following: (a) The program has a low technical risk. (b) The original schedule leading to production is of heavy low risk. (c) The accelerated schedule leading to production is of medium risk.
