A risk management approach for acquisition of software intensive systems in the Turkish Army.

Saylan, Necip
The current techniques of risk assessment rely on checklists and human expertise. This constitutes a rigorous approach only when the people are experts on risk assessment. This thesis introduces a formal method and addresses the necessity of the identification and analysis of the risk. During implementation of risk management process, risk assessment will be discussed within an acquisition of software intensive systems in the Turkish Army. This thesis includes a survey and comparison of other software risk management processes. Risk areas are identified according to the proposed risk management approach. To decrease the number and impacts of risks to the projects, project risk management teams must be established within each project team and all risk management activities must be fulfilled by the whole project members of both acquirer and supplier. With this method, risk management efforts are going to be executed in a planned and ordered way. We believe that the enhancement of the current risk management practices with the proposed approach, the Turkish Army teams will be able to lower the project costs and development time, while increasing the product quality.


An Experimental Study on Impact of Risk Data Visualization onRisk Evaluations
Dikmen Toker, İrem; Eken, Görkem (null; 2018-11-18)
Risk assessment is a systematic process to characterize and evaluate risk, with the available knowledge. Thus, its success depends significantly on the "availability of knowledge" during the assessment process. The knowledge elicitation from experts, the structure of the risk database and information visualization that may help sense-making from previous projects are critical factors that can improve risk assessment process. Risk assessment is usually carried out at the start of a project and updated during...
Incorporating sustainability in risk assessment of construction projects

There are standard procedures proposed for risk management (RM) such as “ISO 31000:2009 Risk Management Principles and Guidelines” that provides principles, framework and a process for managing risk. However, RM is still among the most popular research topics in project management domain as there is a lack of consensus on the definition of risk as well as the contextual factors affecting its level. Many authors argue that although complexity, vulnerability, uncertai...

Procurement risk management (PRM) requires a good understanding and assessment of all potential risks. As the procurement industry mostly functions globally and the supply-demand chain forms a dependency structure among all interested parties, the quantification of risks related to the suppliers gain importance. This study presents a systematic PRM to evaluate and quantify the risks of a commodity associated to its suppliers. The probabilistic set up using total probability theorem on the information collec...
Identifying and managing risk in mega-projects: the case of automotive test center project in Turkey
Ayvazoğlu, Buğra; Akın Ateş, Melek.; Department of Business Administration (2019)
The issue of risk assessment in projects has attracted considerable attention in both practice and the literature. Although the number of studies investigating large-scale engineering projects (construction, rail system projects, power plants, etc.) has been increasing, majority of them focus on private sector. In this thesis, it is specifically focused on a current, mega-project where both governmental and private organizations participate, namely the Automotive Test Center Project carried out in Turkey. T...
A regional scale quantitative risk assessment for landslides: case of Kumluca watershed in Bartin, Turkey
ERENER, ARZU; Düzgün, Hafize Şebnem (2013-02-01)
The paper proposes a methodology for quantitative landslide risk assessment for regional-scale analysis. Each component of risk, i.e., hazard, vulnerability, and consequence analysis, is quantitatively assessed. The developed landslide risk assessment methodology is tested in Kumluca watershed, in BartA +/- n, Turkey. Geographic information systems and remote sensing techniques are used to create landslide factor maps, to obtain susceptibility maps, hazard maps, elements at risk, and risk maps. Susceptibili...
