The office of the Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Nuclear Matters sought a way to mitigate the impacts of a constrained workforce and shrinking industrial base on vital nuclear modernization programs.


The office drew on Ark to develop a Risk Management Framework for the Nuclear Enterprise, identifying industrial base risks and opportunities and forecasting the contractor workforce in key regions for the coming decade.


Ark's workforce analysis has informed schedule feasibility assessments, helping modernization programs meet cost and schedule metrics. Its insights on the industrial base have enabled leadership to instantly identify alternative supplier capacity for vital nuclear technologies, ensuring the continued credibility of the U.S. nuclear deterrent.
