James Webb Space Telescope: Project Meeting Commitments but Current Technical, Cost, and Schedule Challenges Could Affect Continued Progress
Cristina Chaplain (au)
The James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) is one of the National Aeronautics and Space Admin.äó»s (NASAäóÖs) most complex and costly science projects. Effective execution of the project is critical given the potential effect further cost increases could have on NASAäó»s science portfolio. The project was rebaselined in 2011 with a 78% life-cycle cost estimate increase -- now $8.8 billion --and a launch delay of 52 months -- now Oct. 2018. GAO has made a number of prior recommendations, including that the project perform an updated cost and schedule risk analysis to improve cost estimates. This report assesses the (1) extent to which the JWST project is meeting its cost and schedule commitments and maintaining oversight; (2) current major technological challenges facing the project; (3) extent to which cost risks exist that may threaten the projectäó»s ability to execute as planned; and (4) extent to which the JWST project schedule is reliable based on scheduling best practices. Tables and figures. This is a print on demand report.
