The Schedule Compliance Risk Assessment Methodology (SCRAM) is an approach for identifying risks to compliance with program schedule, i.e. SCRAM can be used for the assessment and improvement of schedule risk compliance. SCRAM can be used:
  • By organisations to construct a schedule that maximizes the likelihood of schedule compliance. 
  • To ensure common risks are addressed before the project schedule is baselined at the commencement of a project. 
  • To monitor project status, performed either ad hoc or to support appropriate milestone reviews 
  • To evaluate challenged projects, to assess the likelihood of schedule compliance, root cause of schedule slippage and recommend remediation of project issues

The audience for the models include:
  • project managers
  • project schedulers
  • hardware and system/software engineers
  • SCRAM assessment team members
  • educators and 
  • anyone interested in achieving project schedule compliance.

SCRAM is the result of a collaborative effort between Adrian Pitman from the Australian Department of Defence, Angela Tuffley of RedBay Consulting in Australia, and Betsy Clark and Brad Clark of Software Metrics Inc. in the United States.
