The “risk” score for the project is a score calculated for either cost or schedule. There are several settings that can be used to calculate the score, however; fundamentally it is calculated:
Risk Score=Results of simulation/original estimate:
  • If the score is < 1 then overall score indicates an opportunity
    If the score is >1 then the score indicates a threat
For calculation of the Score, you can select several options for the results of simulation that include Mean, Mean + Standard Deviation, and other predefined percentiles as the numerator in the formula.
