Types of Risk Analysis

(A Presentation)






    QUANTITATIVE RISK ANALYSIS

 

     -    Two Elements Used: Probability and Likely Loss

 

     -    An'ALE' is produced (via Probability x Likely Loss)

 

     -    Several Major Drawbacks (hangovers???):

 

                   Eg: no accurate probability database

                        probability is usually unique to case

                        expected loss hard to establish

                        'expected' not easy to accept!

 

     -    Fairly limited use
