Tips on using this forum..

(1) Explain your problem, don't simply post "This isn't working". What were you doing when you faced the problem? What have you tried to resolve - did you look for a solution using "Search" ? Has it happened just once or several times?

(2) It's also good to get feedback when a solution is found, return to the original post to explain how it was resolved so that more people can also use the results.

Hi all:


I am working three weeks ago on risk analysis by using ORACLE Primavera Risk Analysis , and i have finished three tutorials till I reach to Risk Register ,in that one I got some questions and I seek pp help ;

What the benefits behind of entering Qualitative / Quantitative Pre-Mitigation, Mitigation and Post- Mitigation of risks? And what is the chain between them?

I mean , when I am putting the data for each expected outcome in risk register which kind of X is reflecting , Pre- mitigation is ...?, Mitigation is ....? and Post Mitigation is .....?

anyone has answer?

An example:


Risk: Unforseen Ground Conditions are discovered during construction

Pre-mitigation, this risk has a 30% probability, will cost £5k £10k or £30k (3 point estimate) and 1,2 or 4 weeks

The mitigation identified is to dig trial holes during site suveys. This will cost £5k

Post mitigation, the probabilty has reduced to 10%, but the cost and time impacts if it does occur have remained the same


So once you've worked this through, you can undertsand if the cost of the mitigation activity is justfied by the reduced cost of the risk


Hope this helps.

  When you find a risk factor, maybe you can and want to do something in order to achieve the succesful of the project. Something you will do is the mitigation.  After you do something for the risk factor, the probality and/or the impact to the project will decline. This scenairo is called post mitigation. So you will know what is pre-mitigation.

I hope this is useful to you.

Best Regards
