    The goal of this activity is to detect project risks as early as possible, to initiate preventive measures and to supervise the efficiency of the initiated measures.

    Risk management is preventive and must be realized periodically, if possible, at short intervals; it must be documented and realized in the following way:

    Suggested measures must be reported to activity PM8 - Project Control via Report Documents (Protocol, Progress Report, Final Project Report, Case Report, Memo, Internal Message,Invitation) which in turn might initiate the update of the Project Plan (in activity PM4 - Detailed Planning).


    Risks always have a negative impact on the planned cost, deadlines and product quality; they may have various reasons. Here some examples: When selecting measures to handle risks, the measures should be coordinated in order to prevent new risks being created.

    (1) Method FMEA is to be applied if
    - high restrictive planned values (deadlines, costs) or
    - high requirements
    have to be fulfilled in the project.

    (2) Method NPT is to be applied if complex arrangement relations and logical interdependences exist in the detailed planning.
