Modeling impact of weather related events when a weather calendar is not appropriate

Post by Aren_YU » Sun Oct 06, 2019 7:42 pm

In the project, we cannot use the weather calendars because even though we can’t work those days we still have costs. How would I build the model to have say a 40% probability of a 5 day delay in January but only a 10% probability in February – and how will they interact (obviously a delay in January will affect work in February).

Risk assignments are calculated for each activity or resource independently and it is possible to have different probabilities and outcomes for different assignments for the same risk. So you can have the same risk “Weather”, but assign different probability and impacts to different activities based on the calendar days in which they are planned to occur during project execution. In the Drag N Drop view, you can assign different probabilities and impacts to account for the weather delay to tasks based on the dates in which they occur.
