Particular type of outcome depends on your schedule and data you have available. For example, you know that the risk “component is delayed on customs” is a fixed delay, because it takes fixed number of days to clear the customs. However risk “delay caused by contractor” is a relative delay because it depends on duration of original work: contractor just works slow on underestimated duration of the task. In certain cases, for example due to changing of requirements, the task must be started again. In this case the outcome should be “restart task”.
Please note that RiskyProject also have fixed and relative increase of cost and income. Also if you include negative values to duration, cost, and income increase, it will be opportunity, not a threat. If some risk alternatives have positive outcome and some negative, the risk will have both threat and opportunity.
