Based on sound conceptual foundations yet developed to meet practical concerns, Project Risk Management has become recognized as a standard work on its subject. It sets out the key issues and concepts involved in effective risk and uncertainty management in a clear and accessible way, providing a comprehensive discussion of risk management processes set firmly in the context of the project management task as a whole and focused on improving performance.

Project management has been proven to be an effective tool to manage sophisticated activities. Various techniques of project management have played an essential role for successful project implementation in different areas. Managing projects, especially in a multi-project environment, involves a complex situation because of its distinguishing feature in which a number of projects are being executed simultaneously, that is, they are followed in parallel. Therefore, applying human resources will b...

Abstract This article proposes a method based on case-based analysis and fuzzy optimization to provide decision support in project risk response. The main steps of the method are: (1) the formulation of alternative risk response actions (RRAs) based on case-based analysis, and (2) the determination of the optimal set of RRAs using a fuzzy optimization model. Based on the method, project managers (PMs) can find out alternative RRAs and further determine an optimal set of RRAs. Some managerial sug...

The outbreak of an epidemic disease may pose significant treats to human beings and may further lead to a global crisis. In order to control the spread of an epidemic, the effective management of rapidly increased medical waste through establishing a temporary reverse logistics system is of vital importance. However, no research has been conducted with the focus on the design of an epidemic reverse logistics network for dealing with medical waste during epidemic outbreaks, which, if improperly t...

Abstract The paper proposes the mega project supply chains infectious risks (MPSCIRs) synergy theory, defines the risk propagation speed, propagation density, and risk interconnectivity, distinguishes conventional risks from infectious risks, and identifies the risks facing major projects when passing through the “secret channel” of supply chains based on system dynamics theory and stability theory, and combining the new characteristics of major project supply chain risks after new technology re...

Abstract Equipment repair/replacement decision is an important aspect of asset management, which aims to find the best time to retire an in-use system considering its lifecycle costs. Previous lifecycle analysis techniques assume that the distribution of equipment’s failure and repair time remain unaltered during the usage phase. In reality, however, the actual parameters that represent equipment’s reliability and maintainability could change by several causal factors, including the quality of p...

Abstract Run-of-river hydroelectric plants along Amazon River tributaries have been shown to be an ecologically viable alternative to meet Brazilian energy demand. These plants are a solution to add capacity. However, due to geographic and socioeconomic characteristics of this region, there are risks that cannot be disregarded. This study reports the application of multi-criteria analysis to identify risk events for the Santo Antonio Hydroelectric Plant under construction, related to service pac...

Due to the situational and contextual individuality of engineering work, the in-progress monitoring and assessment of those factors that contribute to the success and performance in a given scenario poses a distinct and unresolved challenge, with heavy reliance on managerial skill and interpretation. Termed engineering project health management (EPHM), this paper presents a novel approach and framework for monitoring of engineering work through data-driven and computational analytics that in tur...
