The following two sections pertain to operating the newly developed TRIMS capability after it is setup as described.
When the engineers and SMEs complete the Knowledge Base (Templates and Questions), the TRIMS database can be loaded. This is done in a blank database using the "Baselining" menu selection from the main TRIMS screen. All required information is completed using this screen. This includes not only the data in the Categories, Templates, and Questions, but also the Impact and Weighting Factors, the Template Information statements, and the time phases. Loading can be done by Government or contractor personnel, but may be done more efficiently by practiced BMPCOE personnel using the information provided by the Knowledge Base team.
