Schedule Risk Analysis

The Olympics are coming to your hometown. Transportation systems and venues are going to be upgraded.

We most likely will run Monte Carlo simulations on a weekly basis. Which of the following is used as a model in a schedule risk analysis?

  1. PMP Solution 2

    Work Breakdown Structure (WBS) is the process of subdividing project deliverables and project work into smaller, more manageable components.
    When running a Monte Carlo analysis for schedule risk, the schedule network diagram and duration estimates are used. An integrated quantitative cost-schedule risk analysis uses both inputs. The output is a quantitative risk analysis model. Correct answer is b).[PMBOK 6th edition, Page 433] [Project Risk Management].


  2. B-Schedule network diagram and duration estimates.
