Re: Does RiskyProject have contingency planning?

In RiskyProject, risks can be managed using two processes. The first is a mitigation plan which is one or more activities that will occur before period in which a risk could occur to minimize either the impact or probability of the risk occurring. Mitigation plans are generally created as assigned t...

Re: Differences between resource types

Resource costs are used to differentiate the types of costs that can accrue to an activity based on the type of resource that is being consumed. If the resource costs is a rate ($/time unit) it can be used to model time dependent costs. Work costs are the cost for personnel based upon a rate (hourly...

Re: Shared Enterprise Resources

No, while RiskyProject has defined set of users, there is no global resource pool that can be shared across projects. If you are sharing resources and risk or issues regarding availability of the resources, we suggest you assign a risk to the resource that indicates that there may delay due to avail...

Re: Exporting schedule

Project schedules are exported using the MSP xml format which is supported by Microsoft Project (2010 and later), P6, and most other 3rd party scheduling software. As part of the export process, you can define whether you would like to export the deterministic schedule or the results of the simulati...

Re: IRR calculation

IRR provides a rate (%) of expected return based on the difference between the present value of income and the present value of project costs over the life of the project or a period of time. Net present value uses a discount rate, which generally represents the cost of borrowing (interest) to calcu...

Re: Risk mitigation plans and risk scores

Yes, mitigation plans are only plans and do not affect the calculation. The Pre-mitigation score reflects the current risk model without mitigation efforts. Mitigation plans are a reflection of what the outcome of certain mitigation activities will have on the risk, but these actions may or may not ...

Re: Importing baselines from MS Project

No, RiskyProject can only import the baseline that is loaded into the project views at the time of the import. So there is no option during the transfer of Project data to RiskyProject to select a specific baseline that is not currently loaded into Microsoft Project.

Re: Continuous vs Discrete Distributions

A continuous distribution is when the a variable can be equal to any value between two defined variables. For example if we have a continuous distribution for duration that is between 5 and 10 days, then Monte Carlo simulation can randomly generate any value between 5-10. Discrete distributions are ...

Re: Project risk modelling

There are two types sources of variance that can affect the duration or cost of a task. There is natural variance that is inherent in all activities and is caused by randomness and what might be characterized as “unknown unknowns” . They are modeled using statistical distributions. This is referred ...
