Many books have been written recently, topics have appeared frequently in contemporary conferences and journals, and special interest groups have formed within major project management associations around the subject of project risk management. At a generic level, current project management standards provide a solid foundation for project risk management practices, including a set of risk. Through the process of quantitative risk management, project managers can convert the impact of risk on the project into numerical terms, which is often used to determine the cost and time contingencies of the project. This paper provides an overview of quantitative risk assessment methods and a real world example of how QRAs were effectively used on a capital project in the mining industry.
