Common Concept of CB Analysis
Prior to creating a new project, project planners conduct a costbenefit
analysis as a means of evaluating all of the potential costs and revenues that may be generated if the project is completed. The outcome of the analysis will determine
whether the project is financially feasible, or if another project should be pursued.
In the context of CBRAT™ Project:
CBRAT also uses the same concept. It calculates how much cost
is required to mitigate the existing risk. Or the total risk can mitigated at what
cost. CBRAT performs the CB Analysis in two ways—investmentbased and riskbased.
Project Contingency Money Allocation View
Investment Based :
In this method, user enters some amount that is less than total budget for project
level risk mitigation. Then takes the two parameters – priority and risk measures.
The parameter priority consist of values like Highest Risk, Highest ROI and Highest
ROI +Unacceptable Risk First. The parameter Risk Measure consist of values like
Grid Score, PI Score and Risk Assessment Value. After taking the cost and two values
from two parameters, it shows two types of graphs—PI Score Analysis and Number of
Unacceptable Risk. In PI Score analysis graph, it shows how much money can reduce
how much PI Score at what cost. (CBRAT calculates risks in the terms of PI Score.
The maximum level of the risk in a project can be 2.88.). In Number of Unacceptable
Risk graph, it shows how many risk titles can be mitigated with what much money.
Project CostBenefit View
Risk Based:
In this condition, it does not take the cost as input. Just it takes two parameters
– desired maximum risk level and risk measure. The first parameter has two values
that is Medium and Low. Second parameter has three values Grid Score, PI Score and
Risk Assessment Value. Based on the parameter, it draws two types of graphs identical
to those described for Investment Based. Meaning of the graphs also identical to
above.
