Risk Calculator

  • The risk calculator can take an input of questions that output a weighted risk assessment to determine the risk evaluation.
  • Risk phases can be configured to determine the severity of risks against changes being scheduled.
  • Each risk status controls the severity that the risk can be assigned e.g. Low, Medium and High.
  • Operators can weight the risk statuses as to rankings based upon the input of questions and answers allocated within the risk calculator e.g. A score of 0 to 100 determines that the change risk is low impact but over 175 determines this is high risk.
  • You can then configure high level questions with multiple choice answers in order to determine the risk impact based upon the output
