Assigning Local Risks Using the Task Information dialog box and Resource Information Dialog Box

You can define task risks in the Risk Tab of Task Information dialog box. All risks entered here are "local risks" and will not appear in the Global Risk Assignment view. It is a preferred method if you want to assign few different risks to few separate tasks and resources.

  1. Open the Task Information or the Resources Information dialog.
  2. Click the Risks tab.
  3. Double-click on Risk Name field and type in the name of the risk.
  4. Use the Indent/Outdent buttons to create a hierarchical structure of risks. This simplifies the enabling and disabling of risks. If you enable a summary risk, all of its risks are enabled and vice- versa.
  5. In addition to the above steps, you can:
  • Click the Enlarge button to expand the view and make it easier to assign risks.
  • Click the Load Risks from Risk View or Load Risks from Template button to load all risks from the Global Risk Assignment View or from a risk template. In this way, you can create a master list of risks in either the Global Risk View or a risk template, load it here and enable or disable risks as required.
  • Clear the Apply global risks to this task check box (it is selected by default) if you do not want to include this task in global risk calculations.

  • You cannot add risks to summary tasks.
  • Ensure that you have clearly defined your risks and uncertainties. For example, if you have already accounted for risk using a range (Base, High, and Low) of durations; do not add this as a risk as it is accounted for twice in the calculations.
  • You can copy and paste risks between tasks. Right-click and choose Copy Risks to copy a risk. In the target task's risk list, right-click and choose Paste Risk to add the risk to the task.
