How do you assess the effect of risks and uncertainties on potential projects and portfolios? information request

Primavera Risk Analysis, formerly Pert Master is a full lifecycle risk analytics solution integrating cost and schedule risk management. Risk Analysis provides a comprehensive means of determining confidence levels for project success together with quick and easy techniques for determining contingency and risk response plans.

You’ll have an objective view of required contingency to account for cost and schedule uncertainty as well as analyzing the cost effectiveness of risk response plans. These combined form the basis of a ‘risk adjusted schedule' which today is becoming the norm within the planning and scheduling process.

Scores of companies and organizations have successfully implemented and are presently using Primavera Risk Analysis to manage uncertainties for; assessing bid validity, realistic assignment and forecasting project funds and contingencies, intelligent risk mitigation scenarios and modeling and reporting ‘Real World’ events such as weather impacts.

  • Integrate Schedule And Cost
    Combine cost and schedule for integrated risk analysis. Information can be combined from non-cost loaded schedules and MS Excel cost estimates.
  • Schedule Quality Assessment
    Verify schedule quanlity by checking for schedule best-practices.
  • Schedule Quality Assessment Report
    Review results of schedule quality assessment.
  • Templated Uncertainty Estimates
    Apply estimate uncertainty consistently through the use of templates.
  • Risk Register
    Conduct qualitative and mitigation planning using the risk register.
  • Link Risks To Schedule
    Map risks to activities they impact.
  • Risk Impacted Scenarios
    Create risk impacted scenarios.
  • Risk Adjusted Schedule Result
    Run the analysis and view the reports.
  • Distribution Graph
    Use distribution graphs to view results for the entire project or selected WBS or activity. See the impact of risk on project & activity dates and cost. Shows probability of success and contingency needed.
  • Tornado Graph
    Tornado graphs display schedule & cost drivers. Drivers can be schedule uncertainty or risk events.
  • Scatter Plot
    Scatter plots show the relationship between time and cost. Combined probability of meeting cost and schedule.
  • Distribution Analyzer
    Use the distrubtion analyzer to compare the impact of risk and the effects of mitigation
  • Probabilistic Cash Flow
    A probabilistic cash flow shows the impact of uncertainty and risks on cash flow and resources. It also shows the difference between what was planned and what is probable.
