James Webb Space Telescope: Project Facing Increased Schedule Risk with Sigificant Work Remaining
Cristina Chaplain (au)
The James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) is one of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration's (NASA's) most complex and expensive projects, at an anticipated cost of $8.8 billion. With significant integration and testing planned until the launch date, the JWST project will need to address many challenges before NASA can conduct the science the telescope is intended to produce. In 2012 GAO recommended that the project perform an updated joint cost and schedule risk analysis to improve cost estimates. NASA later indicated that the tracking of information it already had in place was sufficient and decided not to conduct another joint cost and schedule risk analysis. This report assesses, among other issues, the extent to which (1) technical challenges are impacting the JWST project's ability to stay on schedule and budget; and (2) budget and cost estimates reflect current information about project risks. Tables and figures. This is a print on demand report.
