Home work Assignment #2: Risk Analysis CIS 635 Sushant Arora CSU ID 2505446 Q1 )  A critical software has been developed. It is estimated that the probability that the software has critical error  is 0.4, and the loss from critical error when actually occurs is \$20 million dollars. The management is  contemplating on whether to perform 1) an independent V & V or 2) to do a walkthrough to reduce the risk of  critical errors. The probability of critical error can be reduced to 0.05 if V& V is done, but it will cost 2 million  dollars to perform such a task. The probability of critical error can be reduced to 0.15 if walkthrough is done, but it  will cost 0.2 million dollars. Find the RRL for each risk reduction approach.   Sol: Probability that software has critical error =P(UO)=0.4        Loss from critical error                                   =L(UO)=\$20,000000        Risk Exposure i.e. RE(before)  = P(UO)*L(UO)=0.4*20,000000        RE(before) = \$ 8000000 i) If an independent V & V is done Probability that critical error is reduced = P(UO)=0.05 Total cost incurred to perform the task  = \$ 2000000 Risk Exposure when V& V is applied = RE(after) =0.05*20,000000

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
