Quick Fix for Managing Risks T COMMERCIAL BENEFITS—SPINOFFS he critical components of a risk analysis software package intended for creating, analyzing, and communicating quantitative models have been integrated into a new system that is helping NASA’s Kennedy Space Center manage and balance major tasks for Space Shuttle ground processing. Under a Phase II Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) contract, Kennedy and Lumina Decision Systems, Inc., of Los Gatos, California, jointly developed the Schedule and Cost Risk Analysis Modeling (SCRAM) system, based on a version of Lumina’s flagship software product, Analytica.® Acclaimed as “the best single decision-analysis program yet produced” by MacWorld magazine, Analytica is a “visual” tool used in decision-making environments worldwide to build, revise, and present business models, minus the time-consuming difficulty commonly associated with spreadsheets.
Lumina contends that Analytica helps users to visualize problems with a clarity and power “far beyond what is possible in a spreadsheet.” With Analytica as their platform, Kennedy and Lumina created the SCRAM system in response to NASA’s need to identify the Analytica® is a visual software tool for creating, analyzing, and communicating quantitative business models. 122 COMPUTER TECHNOLOGY importance of major delays in Shuttle ground processing, a critical function in project management and process improvement.
Landing-tolaunch ground processing between Shuttle missions, also known as Shuttle turn-around, is a highly complex cycle that includes approximately 1,000 major processing tasks arranged around 24 subsystems.
Roughly half of these tasks must be completed for every Shuttle turnaround, while the remaining tasks include periodic maintenance and inspection, and duties to handle special problems and mission-specific processing requirements. With Kennedy being fully accountable for all aspects of Space Shuttle ground processing— inc...
