Projects usually contain a lot of risk elements due to many uncertainties. For R&D projects the risk level normally is high or even very high. Risk areas in all projects are on the contractual, scheduled and financial side. Additional risks could be in the field of the particular science and technology involved. It is a fundamental responsibility of research managers, administrators, scientists and engineers to apply the tools of risk management and to identify, analyse, mitigate and control potential or actual risks of any projects.
The following topics will be covered:
- Definition of Risk Management,- Project Risks: Technology, Schedule, Cost, Contract etc.,- Risk Identification: Potential, Actual,- Risk Analysis: Impact, Quantification of Damage,- Risk Classification: Low, Medium, High,- Risk Mitigation Procedures,- Risk Protection: Margins, Insurances etc.,- Risk Monitoring and Control
