Action for risk 2 should be rejected, while actions for risks 1 and 3 can be adopted. Dr. Maged Ezzat Georgy More More about Probability & Impact Last week, we discussed that different impacts could exist exist think of different levels of productivity drop. Each impact is coupled with certain probability value. In this case, take EV = ΣP*I Dr. Maged Ezzat Georgy More about Probability & Impact 60% EV = - 6,000*0.1 + 0*0.6 + 6,000*0.2 + 12,000*0.1 = $ 1,800 The expected additional cost...
