And improve safety, control and predictability

The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) is an independent agency of the United States Federal Government responsible for the civilian space program, as well as aeronautics and aerospace research.

NASA selects Active Risk Manager from Active Risk to support the risk management process and improve safety, control and predictability.

Since its inception in 1958, NASA has accomplished many great scientific and technological feats. NASA technology also contributed to the military-industrial complex, where adaptations have benefited us mere earthlings.

At the heart of NASA is exploration and with exploration comes risk. These risks take many forms and fundamental to every mission requirement is safety. If it cannot be done safely then it will not be done at all. Therefore safety issues touch every aspect of risk management within every NASA mission, irrespective or importance, location or budget.

Following a review of the risk management solutions available NASA selected Active Risk Manager™ as the technical solution for the management processes associated with safety, performance, cost and schedule risks.

Active Risk Manager proved to be the most sophisticated and complete risk management solution we looked at. [..] The flexibility and configurability of this product makes it suitable to be used across the Agency on different sized projects and by various functional groups.
