Title: Modeling Risk Analysis
Post by: A.Russell on August 04, 2007, 01:23:52 am
Does anyone have any best practices concerning modeling risk analysis with uml? I can't find a good example.

I can see that risks can be noted in the Project window for individual elements, and that a metric can be assigned in Project Indicators. What is really needed is somewhere all the risks can be viewed and ranked. Does anyone have a good method of managing this?

Furthermore, is it possible for this documentation to be discluded from reports.

Since assessing and mitigating risk early is one of the tenets of a Rational Unified Process I thought someone might have some ideas.

What I have done is created a special folder for risk assesment and used Issues to note risks and their mitigation. I then added links to them from the use cases or requirements that they concern.

The only problem with that is how to incorporate them into the project estimate.

Anyway, I just thought I'd share that. If anyone has any better ideas, I'd like to hear them.

More or less I do it the way you described it. The analysis of the impact is something that *could* be supported by some machine. However, it's on a human to actually decide on the picture. Unless you don't have hundreds of different risks a manual approach is likely the best. And then again if you really have so many, you would need to invest the money in *real* RM tools rather than using EA for it.
