TRIMS is based on NAVSO P-6071 and the DoD Templates
from DoD 4245.7-M. It follows the methodology put forth in this book and
reflects the Risk Assessment Report format shown in Appendix C. TRIMS
identifies and rank orders process areas with the highest level of risk based on user responses to specific
questions. It then tracks the risk management process to ensure that corrective
actions are taken before technical risk gets out of hand. TRIMS
identifies goals, personel responsible for various activities, and "next action" dates for future activities
in the development and acquisition process.
TRIMS is easy to initialize, manipulate, and
maintain. It features default values for many categories by program
type. Users can tailor all fields to suit individual program requirements, and
the program generates a variety of useful reports. Future upgrades of TRIMS
will include a roll-up function to generate composite risk reports based
on TRIMS assessments of individual subsystems. TRIMS is especially helpful when preparing or structuring
technical data for reviews and audits.
