Risk management is one of the key element in project management processes. There are numerous tools available to support the various phases of the risk management process. Issues related to project risk management are widely analysed both by national and international centres. The aim of the article is to present selected methods of project risk assessment. The methods will be characterised through prism of five basic areas: operations research methods, simulation methods, probabilistic and statistical methods, sensitivity analysis and efficiency adjustment methods.

    Resampling-based methods for multiple hypothesis testing often lead to long run times when the number of tests is large. This paper presents a simple rule that substantially reduces computation by allowing resampling to terminate early on a subset of tests. We prove that the method has a low...

    Exposure models are needed for comparison of scenarios resulting from alternative policy options. The reliability of models used for such purposes should be quantified by comparing model outputs in a real situation with the corresponding observed exposures. Measurement errors affect the...
