Risk Register (Risks)

The Risk Register (Risks) page allows user to add risks to the selected project.  Here the risk data can be imported from PRC Risk Register or create in the page itself.  The user can also input the probability percentage for each risk which is the chance of occurrence for each risk and the distribution values according to which the cost can be distributed over the risk.
