Re: Default Task Types

Fixed Units is probably the best task type for schedule risk analysis because of the manner in how task types are used to recalculate Work, Units, or Duration. In Monte Carlo simulations, we are measuring how changes to task durations can not only affect project duration and finish time, but also ho...

Re: Assigning risks to Agile projects

In Agile, risks as understood in more traditional risk analysis don’t exist or more specifically, they are not managed as risk events, but rather issues that could impact the progress of specific sprints in the delivery of a storyboard. Issues are conditions that have 100% probability of happening, ...

Re: Default Task Types

Yes. In the Project Options > Duration tab you an set the default Task Type. If you do not manually change this default setting, the Task Type is set to Fixed Units.

Re: Impact of estimate quality on risk assessments

In of themselves, the quality or accuracy of your cost and schedule estimates are a major risk a does not matter whether you are performing Monte Carlo or Critical Path analysis. The quality of any analysis is dependent upon the quality or accuracy of the inputs or as more commonly known Garbage In ...

Re: Agile and schedule risk analysis

1. It is possible to model Agile projects in RiskyProject, however it does take some adjustment in the methodology and process. 2. Agile has iterations and storyboards which represent the steps (iterations) and deliverables (storyboards) 3. In RiskyProject you can model iterations as activities. Sto...

Re: Opportunity Risk Matrix

There are no limits to the number of colors or the range of colors that you can apply to the risk matrix. As an example, if you had a standard 5x5 matrix with 25 cells, you could have 25 different colors. We don’t recommend this, but it is becoming very common to see risk matrixes with up to 6 color...

Re: Customized risk matrix settings for different users

The Risk Trends reports can be modified using the Risk Trend Chart Settings in the Format Risk Matrix dialog box. By default, the Risk Trends provides the number of risks in each risk severity category over a designated number of periods. The periods can be set using the Risk Trend Chart periodicity...

Re: Modifying Risk Matrix colors

The Risk Matrix Reports are the Risk Matrix, Risk History, Risk Trends, and Risk Monitor. All are providing slightly different information on both historical and current assessment of your project risks. The Risk Matrix report allows you to show the original and post mitigated assessments for each r...

Re: Default constraint type

In RiskyProject you cannot set a default setting for the constraint typ. In RiskyProject, when you add a new task the constraint type will always default to As Soon as Possible. The reason for this is that in schedule risk analysis hard constraints of any kind should be used as this will prevent the...

Re: Irreducible Risk

Irreducible risk is sum of the aleatory risk, which is modeled using 3 point estimates for Low, Most Likely, and High for duration and cost, and residual risk that remain due to risk events or epistemic risks that cannot be completely eliminated. Often irreducible and residual risk are considered eq...
