Abstract
AbstractRisk matrices have been proven as useful risk management tools, especially in the cases where data are not sufficient. Current usage of risk matrices in both literature and practice is related to single risk assessment. However, sometimes the decision makers care more about the overall risk consisting of several of single risks, which is in the scope of the aggregation of single risks measured by risk matrices. Unfortunately, two notions, namely, incomparability of different qualitative risk ratings and incomparability of different risk types, hinder the aggregation of risk matrices. Therefore, few literature studied on this issue and even ISO have not given a solution. In this paper, a general framework for risk matrix aggregation is proposed. The basic idea is to transform the risk matrices into other equivalents to operate the aggregation process. Based on this framework, three methods, namely, the fuzzy set method, the interval number, and the probability density function methods, are introduc...

Abstract Selecting risk factors is essential for measuring energy corporate risk. However, the comprehensive identification of energy corporate risk factors is still a difficult issue. This paper innovatively uses the text mining approach to comprehensively identify energy corporate risk factors from textual risk disclosures reported in financial statements. Based on 131,755 risk factor headings from 3707 Form 10-K filings from 840 U.S. energy corporations over the period 2010–2016, 66 types of ...

Risk measures play significant roles in determining the magnitude of risks. The traditional risk measures consider only the consequence (C)and the probability (P)and ignore the support of the knowledge behind to estimate Cand P. Several researchers have suggested adding knowledge as a third dimension in the risk measures. However, the issues of how to embed the dimension of knowledge in the risk measures to output an explicit expression of the risk measure and how to measure the stre...

Studies on software risk response theories and methods play an important role in improving the success rate of software project. With the requirement of software risk management, the existing single-objective risk response strategies section model is difficult to manage software risks effectively. This paper regards software risk response cost and software risk exposure as optimization objectives and proposes a multiobjective risk response strategies optimization model for software project. Furt...

Extant research has focused upon assessing individual risks with the aid of risk matrices. Although risk aggregation is an important issue in risk management, aggregation of risks measured by risk matrices remains unresolved despite the wide usage of risk matrices. This paper proposes a framework to resolve the problem. We start from modifying the two notions of non-aggregatability of risk matrices, namely, qualitative description of inputs and non-comparability of different types of consequence...

We consider multiple criteria decision aiding (MCDA) in the case of interactions between criteria. In dealing with interactions between criteria, fuzzy measures and integrals have demonstrated great advantages. Nevertheless, the determination of fuzzy measures has proven difficult because the capacities of not only single criterion but also all subsets of criteria need to be identified. Due to the value judgment essence of MCDA, the attitudes of the decision maker (DM) are typically modeled to i...

Risk matrices have been widely used as a risk evaluation tool in many fields due to their simplicity and intuitive nature. Designing a rating scheme, i.e., determining the number of ratings used in a risk matrix and assigning different ratings to different cells, is an essential part of risk matrix construction. However, most of the related literature has focused on applying a risk matrix to various fields, instead of researching how to design risk matrices. Based on the analysis of several curr...

Abstract The purpose of this study is to assess the risk of operational safety for dangerous goods in airfreights. Based on the relevant literature, the risk factors (RFs) of operational safety were first investigated. A revised risk matrix based on fuzzy AHP (Analytic Hierarchy Process) was then proposed to assess the risks of those RFs’ in operational safety. Finally, to validate the model, the airfreight operations of dangerous goods in Taiwan were empirically investigated. The results indica...

Risk matrices are adopted and recommended by many organizations, but the way they are usually constructed violates some basic theoretical principles, giving rise to inconsistent risk ratings. This paper studies ways in which multiple criteria and portfolio decision analyses can improve the design and deployment of risk matrices, using MACBETH (the "Measuring Attractiveness by a Categorical Based Evaluation TecHnique"). Firstly, it introduces 'value risk-matrices', built with MACBETH in the follo...

Recent studies indicate that absence of the consideration of risk attitudes of decisionmakers in the risk matrix establishment process has become a major limitation. In order to evaluate risk in a more comprehensive manner, an approach to establish risk matrices that integrates risk attitudes based on utility theory is proposed. There are three main steps within this approach: (1) describing risk attitudes of decisionmakers by utility functions, (2) bridging the gap between utility functions and...

Abstract Critical infrastructures (CIs) play a vital role in providing public necessities and services; however, they are also accompanied by potential risk factors and consequent risk events. CI risk assessment is important for capturing the overall risk profile and risk sources. However, a complex interdependent scenario induced by inherent features of CIs makes risk assessment more challenging. The purpose of this study is to develop a decision support approach for CI risk assessment in a com...
