Expected Loss
In RiskyProject Expected loss is calculated parameter. Could you please explain the calculating algorithm?

Re: Expected Loss
Expected cost of risk is calculated based on formula:

(Mean cost of project  Original (deterministic) cost of project) * cost correlation coefficient of this risk

It means that expected cost is this is a contribution of each risk to total cost increase of project. Interestingly that the mean cost of task, where this risk is assigned, is not in this formula directly. It is a correlation, which is used. The correlation coefficient is calculated based on total project cost and cost increase due to risk.
