Event Chain Diagram

Post by Oldrin » Sat Sep 09, 2006 9:43 am

I found information on your site related to Event Chain Diagrams. Is it supported in RiskyProject software?

Event Chain Diagram is a useful tool and analyze and visualize relationship between risks in different tasks. We currently did not implement it in RiskyProject but planning to do it in future versions.

I like arrows of different colors which represent risks in Gantt Chart. What I discovered that if task has very many risks assigned not all arrows are displayed. Is it correct? How many arrows can be displayed on the task bar?

RiskyProject automatically calculates maximum number of arrows per Gantt Chart bar based on total width of this bar. Yes. Not all arrows can be displayed on the Gantt bar of there is no space. Moreover if bar is very narrows, arrows may not be displayed at all. The purpose of arrows is to demostrate, that this task has certain number of local risks attached.

Intaver Institute has developed a specification for Event Chain Diagrams. It will help to standardize diagrams not only for RiskyProject, but also for other software or even manual drawing of the diagrams. Here is a link to the paper, which includes this specification:

I use RiskyProject 6 but I don't see any lines connecting risk with a trigger on event chain diagram. How can I enable lines in RiskyProject?

RiskyProject at present time does not show any connecting lines between risk and trigger on Event Chain Diagrams.

Do you have a written specification for Event Chain Diagram?

We don't have a detailed specification of Event Chain Diagram but we are currently working on it. We will let you know when it becomes available.

We don't automatically display risk name next to the arrow on Event Chain diagram because the diagram can become too busy. You can copy Event Chain Diagram to the clipboard, paste it to any software, such as PowerPoint and add risk name.
