Building from previous editions of the DoD Risk Management Guide, the revised edition emphasizes managing not only program risks but also issues and opportunities. The guide supports DoDI 5000.02 policy as well as the DoD Better Buying Power 3.0 initiative to “improve leaders’ ability to understand and mitigate technical risk.”

The risk management framework remains the core and the model for all three processes. Programs must identify risk as early as possible to prevent problems before they occur and to avoid unnecessary costs late in the life cycle. In addition, the guide acknowledges the distinct and complementary influence of issues, or problems that have already occurred or will certainly occur, and opportunities, which could potentially provide benefits to the program if pursued.

The guide draws on insights from DoD program reviews and extensive practitioner experience to offer advice for programs as they seek to identify, analyze, handle, and monitor risks, issues, and opportunities. The guide highlights “expectations” programs should have in mind as they develop their management approaches.

The guide reflects considerable study and collaboration, including contributions from the Services, Defense Acquisition University, and industry, yet it remains a living document. Risk management is a vital DoD focus and remains a target for continuing process improvement.

PRR Checklist dated 14 August 2007.

The following link will take you to a tool developed by the Aeronautical Systems Center for conducting Production Readiness Reviews.  This tool was developed using Excel and comes with a users guide that you can access by selecting the PRR Guide folder in the same seciton of this folder.  The PRR Checklist tool is fairly intuitive and provides you the ability to not only capture your findings, but you can modify many of the fields and questions.  The tool also provides the capability to accomplish risk assessments by weighting both the probability of occurance and the potential impact of any particular question or area.  The tool (excel) has seven tabs.  The first tab is Admin and is basically your PRR Coversheet.  The next tab is where you assign your Risk Thresholds for probability of occurance and impact that together give you your weighted risk factor.  The next four tabs are your PRR assessment areas.  The final tab is the summary page that provides a quick visual on your risk assessment.
