Risk Analysis and Management

Enterprise Architect supports the modeling of risks at the project or the element level. A project manager or senior analyst will typically define risks at the project level, whereas a business analyst, while they might assist with project risks, would typically record risks at the level of requirements and modular units of the system such as components.

Project Management Items

Risks can be assigned to any element in the repository. They can be managed through the Risks Window, which is part of the Project Maintenance group of windows.

Requirements Diagram

A Requirements diagram can be created and any number of Risk elements can be added to the diagram. Modeling the risks using an element allows the Risks to be connected to other modeling elements by diagram relationships. This can be useful when the Risk applies to more than one element or when it is of concern to one or more stakeholders.

Risk Taxonomy

The Risk Taxonomy can be used to formally define risks and associated metadata applied universally across one or more initiatives. This includes definitions of Threats, Loss type, Contact Frequency, Loss Magnitude, Risks and more.
