The Application of Risk Management in Infrastructure Construction Projects
Rashed Ali, CCE

ABSTRACT: The demands of society are increasing with increased human knowledge and technological advances. As a consequence, projects are large and getting bigger and they tend to be complex and multidisciplinary. A good example of this is infrastructure oil and gas industry projects, which include the activities of large construction companies. From inception to completion, the construction process is complex and characterized by many uncertainties. Most contractors, however, have developed a series of rules of thumb that they apply when dealing with risk, which is inherently a dynamic problem. Several authors have formulated different risk management approaches. Among all methodologies, risk management process (RMP) methodology provides a logically consistent framework for managing risk. If RMP is applied, not only will project costs be more explicitly known, but also profit will be maximized. An RMP methodology is used in this article to formulate a risk management model, incorporating infrastructure project costs for construction budgeting purposes, and applying it to the project in order to improve the evaluation and control of costs. KEY WORDS: Construction, cost estimation, risk management process and model, and infrastructure project Experiences in developed countries have shown that construction investments and activities increase with the state of economic development of the country. In particular, the Wells study indicates that capital formation in construction as a percentage of GDP, increases with GDP per capita from 8.9 percent for countries below US $350 GDP per capita to 13.6 percent for countries above US $700 GDP per capita. In Singapore, the prospect of a sustained construction boom in the early nineties reaffirms the industry's role as a major economic sector in the nation's economy. It was responsible for safe housing and sanitation in the sixties and an efficient transport and industrial infrastructure that support industrial expansion in the seventies and early eighties. In the nineties, it was called upon to deliver a pro-business environment facility

that will make Singapore a global business center and an attractive location for multinationals to set up their operational bases. The primary goal of every construction project is to meet the owner's functional requirements. Depending upon the nature of the project, aesthetics may also play a role. Quite often, construction projects fail to achieve their time, quality, and budget goals. This is frequently because of the failure of the contractor to analyze and assess unanticipated risks. The trend is toward open competitive tendering. The future will require new innovative financing solutions, backed by rigorous and sophisticated risk management analysis and techniques, and tight contractual structures. Most contractors, however, have developed a series of rules of thumb that they apply when dealing with risk, which is inherently a dynamic problem. These rules generally rely on the contractor's experience and judgment. Rarely do contractors quantify uncertainty and systematically assess the risks involved in a project. Furthermore, even if they assess these risks, they even less frequently evaluate the consequences (potential impact) associated with these risks. One reason might be the lack of a rational, straightforward way to combine all the facets of risk systematically into a prioritized and manageable scheme. As such, better tools are needed to handle the problem. It is apparent that the present approach in preparing cost estimates for construction projects is inadequate and should be reviewed. It is desirable and necessary to research the current theory of risk management, and to examine in detail the risk management techniques available, upon which the implementation of risk management process (RMP) in preparing cost estimates shall be formulated. The scope of this article is to the study of the application of risk management process to formulate a risk management model ? for cost estimation of construction projects and comparison of the results obtained from RMP. Using a traditional deterministic approach and also estimating using a risk analysis (ERA) method. ? to incorporate a cost model which has been applied to the capital budget of a project to construct a new station (building) for an infrastructure project. The forecasted outcome (tender stage) will be evaluated by comparing it with the actual project results determined at interim stages (construction stage) of development.

Risk Management In line with the research, among the methodologies, the RMP (risk management process) methodology has been successfully applied to a specific live project which has demonstrated its capability in providing more information on risk factors that guides managers in their decision making process. However, this risk management concept is relatively new in the construction industry. It is significant that risk management has been extended well beyond the normal confines of insurance. Risk management has been developed mainly in the US to enable organizations to combat an ever-increasing exposure to risks. Risk management can be used to denote methods which aim to develop a comprehensive understanding and awareness of the risk associated with a particular variable of interest in strategic decision, or with the successful accomplishment of the project objectives or project success criteria. These variables of interest or project objectives may include tangible economic factors such as project cost, project schedule, project performance, net present value, or return on investment. Or they may include non-tangible factors such as corporate image, employee satisfaction, or increased customer service. As far as this article is concerned, the variable of interest is the cost of building in construction projects. Risk management applied to the construction industry refers to the assessment of and reaction to the risk and uncertainty that will inevitably be associated with a project. To manage a project, a quality and safety system is normally employed in order to meet the objectives and expectations of a company. The quality and safety system should be structured to optimize and control in relation to project risks, costs and benefits, to be achieved by the project to satisfy both internal and external customers. Construction, like many other industries in a free-enterprise system, has sizeable risk built into its profit structure. From inception to completion, the construction process is complex and characterized by many uncertainties. Risk Management Process (RMP) The RMP provides a logically consistent framework to develop a process of finding and understanding alternative risks, assessing their consequences and uncertainties, identifying the resources needed, and choosing appropriate courses of actions in coping with these risk factors and in achieving the desired results. It is a powerful tool of confronting unknown risks, responding quickly in finding

out what could go wrong and developing strategies to control risks for project success. The core aspects of the RMP approach are risk identification, risk measurement, risk assessment, risk evaluation and risk control and monitoring which are briefly elaborated as follows. The RMP begins with identifying the strategic importance of the project and the corresponding project mission, aims and objectives. The mission and aims must be driven by the overall business strategy of the corporation. They should be the driving force for RMP in developing an appropriate risk management model to identify and manage the risks associated with a given project. Risk identification, risk measurement and risk assessment form a system that includes several tools to identify all potential risk factors and to enumerate the consequences and their severity of the identified risk factors. It also includes several techniques of assessing the uncertainties associated with the consequences in the form of probability distributions and determining the probability distributions for project critical success factors. The risk evaluation phase of the RMP involves identifying several decision alternatives and evaluating them based on the risk profiles obtained in the risk assessment phase, and taking necessary corrective actions if the project outcomes are at variance with the planned outcomes. In the risk control and monitoring phase, the project manager can examine the progress, as well as any deviations that would occur and corrective actions required for achieving the desired objectives of the project. This phase also facilitates periodic communication of pertinent information on the status of project accomplishments to senior management and other personnel who are involved with project execution. Cases This article will carry two case studies. First, building project cost estimates will be prepared for the case project by using three different approaches, the traditional single point deterministic approach, the estimating using risk analysis (ERA) method, and the risk management process technique using Monte-Carlo simulation. The results obtained from the first two approaches will be compared with those obtained from RMP using Monte-Carlo simulation. Secondly, incorporating a cost model, this has been applied to the capital budget of a project to construct a new station (building) for an infrastructure project. The forecasted outcome (tender stage)

will be evaluated by comparing it with actual project results determined at interim stages (construction stage) of development. Detail of Case Project for Cost Estimation The title of the case project is known as ORL-Shopping center and Office Complex, Singapore." The information known about the project at the feasibility study-stage is as follows: Project Mission—To deliver the shopping complex to the client so as to meet the public demand in Singapore. Project Aim—To complete the project on time, within budget and at an acceptable standard to the client. Project Objective—So far as cost estimation is concerned, the objective is to predict the final total project cost as accurately as possible so that the client knows what to expect. ? The project is a shopping center and office complex in Singapore which is comprised of a market, cooked food center, offices, car-park, and an indoor recreation center. ? A six-story market complex with two basement levels for car-parks (10,500sq. m.), G/F to 2/F for market areas(15,750 sq. m.), 3/F for cooked food center (5,250 sq. m.), 4/F for office spaces (5,250 sq. m.) and 5/F indoor recreation center are shown on the sketch. ? The total air conditioning area is about 5, 250 sq. meters (for office space only), whereas the other areas will be provided with mechanical ventilation only. A bottom-up construction methodology is considered at this stage for the two basement works and also the superstructure. Table 1 indicates the cost data available from recent projects with comparable size and with similar design A risk model is developed following the risk management methodology described earlier, as shown in figure 1, and will be applied to the project to evaluate how risk management process can be applied in the preparation of the building project cost estimates. Cost Estimation Using Traditional Deterministic Approach The traditional deterministic approach is used to determine the most likely cost of the project. It does not handle risks in a logical and systematic way as RMP or ERA. Instead, a fixed percentage contingency sum is added on to the estimated cost of

the project as an allowance for risks. In this case project, the superficial method using unit area cost estimation is adopted to estimate the building costs for the market complex. The most likely cost figures in table 1 are used. A percentage allowance (usually say 10 percent) for contingencies is included in the estimated amount to represent the cost uncertainty. The cost estimation results are summarized in table 2. The target value of the building project (i.e., base estimate) is S $96.6 M and the contingencies allowances is S $9.7 M. Therefore, the total budget for building project is S $106.3 M. Estimating Using Risk Analysis (ERA) Method Estimating Using Risk Analysis (ERA) method is a risk management technique, specifically designed for cost estimation in construction projects. According to this method, the base estimate which represents the costs for the risk free (i.e., the certainty feature, the work that is unlikely to change) part of the work is prepared first by pricing the known features using current rates and prices. It is reasonable that the minimum cost figures in table 1 are used to calculate the base estimates for the building components. Risk identification is then carried out to identify significant risk factors that may affect project costs. In this case project, the checklist approach is used. Risk measurement and assessment are then carried out to determine the maximum risk allowance and average risk allowance for each risk factor. In his Certification submission, the author included 12 tables as appendix items. Space restrictions prevent those items from being included with this article. The maximum risk allowances and average risk allowances obtained are then used to calculate three types of estimates, a base estimate, average risk estimate, and maximum likely estimate by using the following equations: Average Risk Estimate = Base Estimate +∑ Average Risk Allowance (equation 1) Maximum Likely Estimate = Aver. Risk Estimate + Max. Likely addition (equation 2) Where Max. Likely Addition =√∑ (Max. Risk Allow. - Aver. Risk Allow.)? Summary of the calculation is shown in Table 3. The ERA calculation provides three point estimates on the cost of the building project. To set the target value and the contingency allowance depends on the risk attitude of the decision maker. For example, a decision maker can choose the base estimate as the target value (i.e., S $86.1 M) and the average risk estimate as the total budget (i.e., S $113.17 M). However, in this situation, one is unable to now the

probability that the actual cost would exceed the value that he or she has chosen. Cost Estimation Using RMP The base cost estimate is represented by a range estimate instead of a single-point estimate. Triangular distribution is used to describe the probability distribution. The three parameters of triangular distribution, namely: minimum, most likely and maximum values are estimated using the historical data available as shown in table 1. The base cost estimate is shown in table 4. The risk identification process is carried out. So far as the cost estimation exercise is concerned, the consequences that are of interest are costs. The magnitudes of these consequences (i.e., costs) are measured as percentage of base cost estimates, which are obtained from cost data of previous projects. As the project is under feasibility study stage, a superficial method using unit area cost estimation is used to formulate the building cost model for use in cost estimation. The cost model is represented by the following equation:


Where n = No. of building components; m = no of risk factors TC = Total Estimated Cost Ai = Gross floor Area of the Building components” I'; i = 1, 2,… …, n Ri = Cost per unit floor area "i"; i = 1,2,……,n Fj = Cost of Risk factor j = 1, 2… m

Risk assessment is then carried out to determine the uncertainties (i.e., the probability of occurrence) of these risk factors and the probability distribution of the relevant project success criteria (i.e., cost). Probability analysis using Monte Carlo simulation technique is then carried out to estimate probability distribution of the building components costs using the model formulated in equation 3. It is done by using the risk analysis and modeling software called "@RISK". Monte Carlo simulation is carried out to determine the probability distributions of the estimated costs the total building project costs for the feasibility stage by using

equation 3. A total of 750 iterations were conducted and the simulation results of the estimated costs total building project cost is presented by cumulative probability distributions in figure 2.

Based on the probability distributions obtained in step 5, different scenarios are developed for building components cost in order to manage risks. The risk evaluation process is consists of two parts, analysis and interpretation, and decision. Analysis and Interpretation of Results Cost estimation using RMP provides a range of values that the cost could take and the likelihood of occurrence of each value within the range. To set the target value and the contingency allowance again depends on the risk attitude of the decision-maker. A decision-maker can choose the most likely value, the expected value, or any value with a given probability of not exceeding it (such as 10 percent) as the target value. Similarly, the total budget can be chosen. From figure 2, the total building project cost scenario developed can be summarized as shown in table 5. For contingency in assigning the target value and the total budget, the decision maker can set a decision policy. For example, one can decide that the values with probabilities of 50 percent (P50) and 90 percent (P90) of not exceeding them as the target value and total budget, respectively. In this case, the target value and the total budget are S $120.62 M and S $126.7 M respectively (i.e., a contingency allowance of S $6 M). Risk monitoring and control will be carried out throughout the project life cycle to review and update risks. From the outcomes of risk monitoring and control process, the risk list prepared in step 2 is updated and reviewed at different stages of the projects. Steps 3 to 8 are repeated until the project is completed. When the project is

completed, the cost information is fed back to the historical cost data for future use.

COMPARISON OF RESULTS OBTAINED FROM DIFFERENT APPROACHES Comparison Between Traditional Approach and Risk Management Process Approach The traditional approach is a deterministic method of cost estimation which assumes that all variables are either known or can be predicted exactly. The final single-point cost prediction implies a degree of certainty that cannot reflect the actual situation where there are a lot of risks and uncertainties associated with the project. Using the cumulative probability distribution curves of estimated costs, for various installations obtained by using RMP, these are compared with the estimated costs obtained by using the traditional approach. The results are shown in table 6. It can be observed that in this project case, the traditional approach has seriously underestimated the costs. Comparison Between ERA Method and Risk Management Process Approach The final estimated costs by ERA are presented by three points, which are in deterministic terms. There is no indication of probability of how likely these three values will occur. Also, there is no indication of how likely the most likely estimate

will occur. The three-point estimated costs obtained from ERA method are compared with the cumulative probability distribution curves obtained by using RMP to check what the probabilities will be for achieving the cost estimates prepared by using ERA method. The results are summarized in table 7. It can be observed that the base estimates and maximum likely estimates are of no practical use for budgeting purposes because for the base estimates, the probability of the actual costs exceeding them is 100 percent. Whereas for maximum likely estimates, the probability of exceeding them is very low. Also, the probabilities that the actual costs will exceed the average risk estimate estimates are quite high. Detail of Case Project for Capital Budgeting This case study will examine the role and application of the risk management process in capital budgeting, using data from an existing station (building) for an infrastructure project. The study will consider how the critical success factors, project structure, work breakdown structure, range estimation, and management control system are used by the risk management process (RMP) to improve the evaluation and control of costs. The potential of the public sector communication infrastructure in Singapore for rail communication has been recognized for many years.


The government set up the Land Transport Authority (LTA) in September 1995, to spearhead improvements to its land transport system. On January 19, 1996, the government announced the decision to build the eagerly anticipated North-East Line. With the new financing framework for railway expansion set out in a white paper on land transport, the North-East Line was found to be financially viable and thus the go-ahead to build the line was granted earlier than originally anticipated. NEL is a mass rapid transit (MRT) line, approximately 20 km long, and it will be built primarily underground. LTA's mission is to provide a quality, integrated, and efficient world class land transport system which meets the needs and expectations of the Singapore people, supports economic environmental goals, and provides value for the money. Based on the risk management process (RMP) described earlier, the following

risk model for capital budgeting (See figure 3) has been deployed. It incorporates a cost model for the infrastructure project. The cost model has been selected as the risk driver for this case study. Alternative models could be developed and integrated in the same basic process for other critical success factors. The RMP process chart in figure 3 starts with a driver, the mission, aims and objectives of the project for the project company (XYZ). As noted earlier, these plans must be an integral part of the corporate business plan of LTA. Mission and Aims: The mission of this project is to "provide the Singapore people with a world class transport system. The specific aims of this project are the: “. . . planning, development, implementation and management of all transport infrastructure and policies.” Objectives: Classically, the objective for a successful project is to complete to budget and program, while providing an end product with satisfactory long-term performance. This is to be continued by developing organization, methods, and policies, to maximize the success of XYZ. Only the cost objective is considered in this article in formulating the RMP based risk management model. When the plans of a project are established, the cost review is initiated at the next stage of the process involving risk identification, risk measurement, and risk assessment. Risk identification starts with a base cost and schedule, prepared when the project was first selected, together with a risk list that is used in categorizing all possible risk factors for the project. A work breakdown schedule (WBS) is then used to determine appropriate cost centers, allocate the potential risk factors to these cost centers, and then prioritize risks by check lists (or alternatively influence diagrams or Ishikawa CE diagrams) for the next phase of risk measurement.


Risk measurement then models each of the risk elements identified on the check lists in terms of consequential cost, as a range estimate (magnitude of impact) and with the assistance of the WBS, at various levels, define cost relationships (as dependent or independent, to ensure no undesirable correlation impacts) which will produce the total project cost. The risk assessment phase determines the likelihood or frequency of each risk factor by input objective or subjective probability distributions, and then by Monte Carlo simulation (using @RISK) to determine the output probability distribution of the project costs as shown in figure 4, 5, 6, 7. The analyst would review the probability distribution and the associated profiles of project costs distributions, and cycle back to the risk measurement phase to modify the model uncertainties or preference for further assessment as necessary. The output cumulative distribution provides a range of probable costs (Construction stage) which reflects a summation of all variable costs. The parameter

estimates for which are a follows: ? ? ? ? ? ? Minimum: S$162.3 m; Maximum: S$165.02m; Mean: S$163.5m; Std.Dev: S$0.509m; P10 value: S$162.88m; and P90 value: S$164.24m Figure 4 can now be compared with figure 5, which shows the output distribution curve for the station (building) project, cost produced at the tender preparation stage. Where the range or variance and standard deviation was significantly different and wider, as shown by figure 7, although not skewed but approximately a normal probability distribution curve and was the result of a review of previous tender prices for similar work. The risk evaluation stage requires project managers to review and interpret the cost forecast produced by the risk assessment and either decide on an expected cost or instruct changes in the modeling of cost or project structure, causing cycling of the process, until the project cost is contained within the desired limits. The range estimates with expected values (EV) have been produced for the station (building) element of the WBS at the tender stage (See figures 5 and 7). When the quantity and rates for concrete, rebar, piling length, and the extent of hard ground was uncertain and the contracted cost was not sure and at the construction stage (See figures 4 and 6). The values produced at these stages are summarized in table 8. Where, contingency has been determined on a 90 percent probability (or confidence level). This value can be varied by the manager depending on his risk aversion. A further stage of estimation would show whether the forecast ranges are reducing towards an end where contingency can be reduced further and reflect that uncertainties have been controlled. If an adjustment cannot be made, then corrections will need to be made to the project in the risk control and monitoring stage. If however, the manager suspects the cost model is in error or model preferences need to be altered, then the process could be recycled at the appropriate phase in the model. The risk control and monitoring phase examines the targets set and contract strategies employed as a result of periodic risk evaluation and observations on if any deviations would occur. If they occur, necessary corrective actions will be devised

and evaluated using the risk evaluation phase of the model. At the end of the project, the outcome is evaluated to improve forecasting in the future. The Results The cost estimates for the case project is carried out in three different ways, traditional deterministic approach, ERA method, and RMP using Monte Carlo simulation. The results obtained from the first two methods are then compared with that obtained from using RMP. From the comparisons, there is no doubt that the present practice of using traditional deterministic approach is inadequate. Cost estimation by means of a risk management process, using Monte Carlo simulation, is superior, more advantageous, and beneficial than the traditional deterministic approach and ERA method. This is because of the following.


Unlike the traditional deterministic approach and ERA method, the final estimated costs are presented in probabilistic terms. The decision maker can therefore have a full picture about the likelihood of the costs of the project. He/she can have a more concrete base to make a logical, rational, and consistent decision about the target values, contingencies to be allowed, and the total budget for the project. In the transportation infrastructure project, RMP has been applied to formulate

a risk management model at the tender stage, which has assisted in refining the capital budget needs, and identified the risks which need continuous review during the construction stage of the project life cycle. By assessing all the risks of each work package together, the total outcome has been evaluated to provide a risk pool or contingency sum that will cover all likely risks. The RMP will continue to be recycled throughout the project life and be used to review capital budgets at half yearly intervals. However the range estimate shown by figure 4 is considered achievable and all expectations are that the final cost will be within the stated range. The need for the application of risk management in construction projects, especially in large projects like oil and gas, and infrastructure projects, is evident. Here are some findings against the traditional deterministic approach which naturally

direct toward the application of risk management as a must. The percentage figure is arbitrarily arrived at, and not appropriate for the specific project. ? ? ? ? There is a tendency to double count risks, because some estimators are inclined to include contingencies in their best estimate. A percentage addition still results in a single figure prediction of estimated final cost, implying a degree of certainty, which is simply not justified. It only reflects the potential for downside risk and does not highlight any potential for cost reduction. Finally, it needs to direct attention away from time and performance or quality and safety risks. Also, as a project is progressing from feasibility stage to construction stage, many of the risks become known or eliminated. The allowances made for these known or eliminated risks should therefore be suitably adjusted, so that more concentration can be put on the unresolved risks. The traditional single-figure deterministic approach is illogical, cost ineffective, and reactionary in nature. This approach is inadequate, since a risk management process (RMP) provides a logical and consistent framework. The need for use of RMP in capital budgeting / cost estimation in any size of project in the construction industry is apparent.

Managing Risks of Large Scale Construction Projects

Dr. Prasanta Dey ABSTRACT: The main purpose of this article is to develop an integrated framework for managing risks of large-scale construction projects. Conventional project risk management frameworks emphasize managing business risks and often ignore operational risks. There are instances of project failure because of operational risks (e.g. , failure of project leadership , contractors' and suppliers' incapability , technical complexities etc), A hierarchical approach deals with such shortcomings by analyzing risks in different levels (e.g., project, work package and activity). It helps identify the least risky project alternative through project level risk analysis and subsequent work package and activity level risk analysis to help identify both business and operational risks. The proposed framework has been applied to a 17000 km long oil pipeline construction project in India in order to demonstrate one effective example of its use. KEY WORDS: Analytic hierarchy process, construction, pipeline projects, and risk management


Although today's organizations appreciate the benefits of managing risks in construction projects, formal risk analysis and management techniques are rarely used because of a lack of knowledge and doubts on the suitability of these techniques for construction industry activities [1]. Managing risks is one of the most important tasks for the construction industry as it affects project outcomes. Today's project managers believe that a conventional approach to project management is not sufficient, as it does not enable the project management team to establish an adequate relationship among all phases of the project, to forecast project achievement for building confidence of the project team, to make decisions objectively with the help of an available database, to provide adequate information for effective project management and to establish close cooperation among project team members. The current literature on construction risk management consists of empirical researches on risk management practices of the construction industry and conceptual frameworks of risk management using various tools and techniques. The Project Management Body of Knowledge, (PMBoK) introduces a six step method of risk management [5], although, these steps are very generic and act as a guideline for managing the risk of projects, they fail to provide a risk management framework for a specific project. The conventional project risk management approaches in the project feasibility stage emphasize on managing business risks and often ignore operational risks. However, there are instances of project failures because of operational risks such as technical complexities, contractors' and suppliers' incapability, government red tape etc, which remain unidentified until they occur. Prasanta Dey reported time overrun because of implementation issues of a river crossing section for cross-country oil pipelines in the eastern part of India [2], S.O. Ogunlana and others reported cost overrun in high rise building projects in Thailand because of contractor's failure [4], Social and environmental issues caused prolonged postponement of the Chand-Cameroon oil pipelines [3], Several projects in the Vietnam oil industry were delayed because of government approval [7]. Risk management approaches in the feasibility stage , although helping to mitigate business risks (external in nature), however fail to identify operational risks. Although they are valuable to identify' the least risky project, but fail to provide a framework for managing every risk across various levels of the project.

The integrated hierarchical approach to risk management not only combines the risk management processes (identification, analysis and development of responses) in an analytical framework, but also integrates the risk management processes in every level of the projects that helps identifying all the possible risks in the early planning phase of the project enabling the project team to make decisions on their responses. The objective of this study is to develop a framework for managing the risk of large construction projects using an integrated hierarchical framework with the active involvement of the concerned stakeholders. There are two approaches to construction risk management—project level risk analysis and work package level risk analysis, which are carried out during the feasibility analysis and implementation phases respectively. Both the approaches have limitations. The project level risk analysis reveals mostly the business risks, which are external in nature covering market, economical and political factors. Although it helps identify the least risky project, it fails to identify' operational risk factors. On the other hand work package level risk analysis reveals operational issues, which in many cases are too late to address and the responses are constrained by the business risks. Moreover, the current literatures demonstrate applications of various tools and techniques in managing project risk, but none of the research reports risk analysis across various levels, which help identify the least risky project alternative, critical work packages and activities along with the associated risks during the early project phase. Therefore, the contemporary approaches to risk analysis lack establishing an integrated risk management framework covering every level of the project, which helps to manage the project effectively. This study is for bridging this gap. Proposed Risk Management Framework The proposed risk management framework has the following steps: ? ? ? ? ? ? Identifying the alternative projects, Analyzing project level risks and selecting the least risky project, Developing the work breakdown structure of the selected project, Analyzing work package level risks, Developing risk responses, Analyzing activity level risks. And,


Developing risk responses. This study uses the analytic hierarchy process for analyzing risks in the project,

work package and activity levels [6].

Application The proposed framework has heen applied to a newly conceived cross-country oil pipeline transportation project in the Western part of India. A typical oil pipeline project consists of laying oil pipelines, constructing pumping and delivery stations, constructing tank farms , constructing communication and a catholic protection infrastructure. A risk management group consisting of nine executives with more than 15 years of project experience was formed. They performed the following steps to analyze risk of the project under study.


Step 1: Identifying the alternative projects

In the oil pipeline industry , alternative projects are identified through feasible routes. The geological information system helped identify a few alternative feasible routes. Step 2: Analyzing project level risks and selecting the least risky project The risk management group in a brainstorming session first identified project level risks. They were market , financial , economical , environmental , technological and political risks. A few sub factors were also identified against each factor. The likelihood of the risks were then derived using the analytic hierarchy process (first, the likelihood of risk factors and sub factors were determined through pair wise comparison at each level using the verbal sealer [6]. Second, the likelihood of failure of each alternative with respect to each risk sub factor was determined by pair wise comparison and subsequently, the results were synthesized across the hierarchy to determine the overall risk of each work package). Step 3: Developing the work breakdown structure of selected project The entire project had been hierarchically classified to form a work breakdown structure (WBS). Figure 2 shows the WBS of the project under study. Step 4: Analyzing work package level risks The risk management group decided to analyze only pipeline laying, station construction and the tank farm work package risk after a short brainstorming session. They identified various technical, organization and environmental risks. Risks related to selection of appropriate technology, site selection, implementation methodology selection, information and communication technology selection, and operational risk were identified under technical risk, Similarly, risk created by project team, operating team, consultant, contractors, suppliers and communication framework were considered as organizational risk and environmental damages during implementation and operations, negative impact on society during implementation and operations and statutory clearance for implementation and operations were identified as environmental risk. Figure 3 shows the work package level risk analysis in an AHP framework. First, the likelihood of the risks was derived by pair wise comparison in factor and sub factor levels using the verbal scale, Second, the likelihood of failure of each package with respect to each sub factor was derived through pair wise using same verbal scale. Finally, the results were synthesized to determine the overall risk of the work package.

The analysis revealed that the pipeline stretches had the highest risk followed by tank farm and stations. Technical and environmental risks were more likely to happen compared to organizational risk, hi the sub factor level, risk related to implementation method selection, environmental damages and negative impact on society were most likely. Step 5: Developing risk responses in work package level The group decided to take the following responses to mitigate work package level risks. They were selection of quality contractors for each work package, selection of appropriate implementation methodology for every pipeline section, appropriate environmental impact assessment and social impact assessment of pipelines package and dynamic operational risk analysis of stations package. Step 6: Analyzing activity level risk The risk management group decided to further analyze risk of pipeline work package by classifying it to four stretches. They identified four major risks in this level. They include the following. ? design risk —(design quality and communication framework); ? procurement risk (procurement method , quality consultants , contractors and suppliers, and communication framework); ? Implementation risk (specification, organization, natural hazards, environmental and social impact, and communication framework); and. ? Operations risk (throughput, inspection, maintenance, environmental and social impact and communication framework). Subsequently, they derived the riskiness of each factor and sub factor and calculated the likelihood of failure of each pipeline stretch using the AHP framework (as demonstrated in step 2 and 4). Figure 4 shows the risk structure for activity level risk analysis. The analysis revealed that implementation risk was most likely followed by procurement risk and pipeline stretch 3 is the most vulnerable. As pipeline stretch 3 was routed through the most difficult terrain, it was likely to experience risks in relation to procurement method selection and possible poor performance of consultants, contractors and suppliers. Additionally, this stretch was vulnerable from poor implementation method specification and organizational issues for implementation. Pipeline stretch 1 was vulnerable from environmental and social impact as it mostly traversed through normal terrain. The pipeline stretch 4 was exposed to mainly

operational risk as it was connected to an offshore terminal.

Step 7: Developing risk responses in activity level The risk management group through brainstorming developed the following responses (see table 1) for each stretch. Construction projects often fail because of wrong technology selection, poor environmental management plan, political red tape, poor design specification, wrong implementation methods, poor performance of contractors, and lack of maintaining materials delivery schedule by the suppliers along with many other reasons. The causes of failure could be classified into business risks (external) and operational risks (internal). Unless they are addressed in the early project-planning phase and adequate responses are planned and implemented, projects inevitably fail to achieve their objectives. In the conventional approaches to project appraisal and planning, quite often only business risks are addressed in order to justify the investment. Therefore, as the projects progress with added learning, there is need for additional resources and knowledge in order to accomplish project outcomes as planned, which

become impossible in many cases. Analyzing project risks hierarchically helps prioritize activities, which are vulnerable for not achieving time, cost and quality. Thereby it helps achieving successful completion of the work packages and in turn projects. Additionally, it helps identifying risk in each level (project, work package and activity). Analysis of project level risk helps identify the least risky project alternative and calls for additional planning for mitigating the risks that are present in the selected project option. Work package level risk analysis firstly, identifies the risky work packages and prioritizes work packages on the basis of risk vulnerability for additional planning. Second, it analyzes risk factors associated with each work package and derives the mitigating measures for each risky work package. Activity level risk analysis on one hand identifies the risky activities within the risky work packages and on the other hand, identifies risk factors, analyzes them and derives responses. Risk analysis using a hierarchical approach not only justifies additional planning and resource requirement at the early project phase, but also helps achieving project schedule, budget and specification. This study reveals that the project level is affected by external risks, work package level is affected by both external and internal risks and activity level is affected by internal risks. The proposed risk management framework using the analytic hierarchy process helps project executives to make decisions dynamically during the project planning phase with the involvement of the project stakeholders. This provides an effective monitoring and control mechanism of projects across various levels of| management of the organization. The proposed framework uses Expert Choice to analyze the decision situation. Additionally , the sensitivity utility of AHP provides an opportunity to the risk management group to observe the nature of the model outcome in different alternative decision situations.

Ogunlana 等人报道,由于承包商的失败,社会和环境 问题成本超支在泰国的高层建筑项目引起了昌德 - 喀麦隆输油管道长时间推 迟,有几个项目在越南的石油工业被推迟是因为政府审批复杂。 风险管理方法在可行性研究阶段,虽然有助于降低业务风险(外部性的) , 但不能识别经营风险。虽然他们是有价值的,以确定风险最小的项目,但无法提

供跨不同级别项目的每一个管理风险的框架。 集成的分层风险管理方法不仅结合了一个分析框架的风险管理流程(识别, 分析和响应的发展) ,而且可以帮助识别在所有可能的风险项目的每一个层面整 合的风险管理流程该项目使项目团队对他们的反应做出决定的早期规划阶段。 本研究的目的是开发用于管理使用集成的分层架构与利益相关者的积极参 与大型建设项目的风险的框架。 有两种方法来建造风险管理,项目层面的风险分析和工作包层次的风险分 析,这是在可行性分析和实施阶段中分别进行。这两种方法都有局限性。 该项目层面的风险分析显示大部分的经营风险,这是外部性质,涵盖市场, 经济和政治因素。 虽然它可帮助识别风险最小的项目,它无法识别的运作风险因 素。 在另一方面工作包层次的风险分析发现业务问题, 在许多情况下都来不及处 理和响应由业务风险的制约问题。此外,目前的文献资料证明的各种工具和管理 项目风险技术的应用, 但没有在各个层次的研究报告风险分析,从而帮助识别风 险最小的项目替代,关键的工作包和活动,以及相关的风险中项目的早期阶段。 因此,现在的方法,以风险分析乏建立综合风险管理框架,涵盖的项目,这 有助于有效地管理项目的每一个层面。这项研究是为弥合这一差距。 提出了风险管理框架 建议的风险管理框架有以下几个步骤: ? ? ? ? ? ? ? 确定备选项目, 分析项目层面的风险,选择风险最小的项目, 发展中所选项目的工作分解结构, 分析工作包层面的风险, 制定风险应对措施, 分析活动水平的风险, 制定风险应对。 他的研究采用层次分析法,分析了该项目,工作包和活动水平的风险。

建议的架构已应用于在印度的西部一家新建的跨国石油管道运输项目。 一个 典型的石油管道项目包括铺设石油管道,建设泵站和输送站,建造油库,建设通 信和阴极保护基础设施。成立由 9 名高管拥有超过 15 年的项目经验了风险管理 小组。它们执行的以下步骤在研究以分析项目的风险。 步骤 1:确定备选项目 在石油管道行业,备选项目通过可行的途径确定。地质信息系统,帮助确定


了几个可行备选路线。 步骤 2:分析项目层面的风险,选择风险最小的项目 风险管理小组在一个头脑风暴会议首次发现项目风险水平。他们是市场、金 融、经济、环境、技术和政治风险。这样几个子过程也对每个因素确定。风险的 可能性使用层次分析法(第一,这样的可能性风险因素和子过程是通过一对使用 口头希尔来比较每一层风险。 其次,失败的可能性替代对每个风险的次级因素是 个明智的比较。随后,结果合成整个层次结构来确定每个工作包的整体风险)。 步骤 3:选定开发项目的工作分解结构 整个项目已经分级分类,形成一个工作分解结构(WBS) 。图 2 示出了所研 究的项目的 WBS。 步骤 4:分析工作包层面的风险 风险管理组决定只分析管道铺设, 车站建设和罐区工作包的风险很短的头脑 风暴会议之后。他们确定了不同的技术,组织和环境风险。 涉及到选择合适的技术,选址,实施方法选取,信息和通信技术的选择和操 作风险的风险已根据技术风险识别,同样,由项目团队,运营团队,顾问,承包 商, 供应商和通信框架创建风险实施和运营,并为实施和被认定为环境风险业务 的法定间隙期间对社会的负面影响时被视为组织风险和环境损害。 图 3 显示了工作包级别风险分析层次分析法的框架。 首先, 推导的风险的可 能性对智慧比较使用口头规模因素和次级因素水平。其次,每个工作包的失败的 可能性对每个次级因素得出通过使用明显的相同词汇。最后,结果综合确定工作 包的整体风险。 通过分析发现,该管道的延伸为最高风险,其次为罐区和车站。技术和环境 风险是可能发生的相比, 组织风险, 高科技的子因素水平, 风险与实施方法选取, 环境破坏和对社会的负面影响是最有可能。 步骤 5:在工作包一级建立风险应对 该集团决定采取以下对策, 以减轻工作包层面的风险。他们是选用优质承建 商承接每个工作包, 选择合适的实施方法为每个管道部分,适当的环境影响评估 和管道包和工作站包的动态操作风险分析的社会影响评估。 步骤 6:分析活动水平的风险 风险管理组决定进一步分析管道工作包的风险分类四个延伸。 他们确定了四 个主要的风险水平。他们包括以下。 ? ? ? 设计风险——(设计质量和通信框架); 采购风险(采购方法,质量顾问、承包商和供应商,和通信框架); 实现风险(规范、组织、自然灾害、环境和社会的影响,以及通信框架);


操作风险(吞吐量、检验、维修、环境和社会影响和通信框架)。 随后,他们得出各因素和子因素的风险度和计算使用 AHP 框架(这表现在

步骤 2 和 4) ,每个管道伸展失效的可能性。图 4 显示了风险结构活性水平的风 险分析。 通过分析发现, 最有可能是其次的采购风险实施风险和管道拉伸 3 是最 脆弱的。 管道拉伸 3 到最困难的地形, 它可能经验风险与采购方法选择和可能表现不 佳的顾问、承包商和供应商。此外,这段是脆弱的贫乏实现方法规范和组织实施 问题。 管道拉伸 1 是脆弱的环境和社会影响,因为它主要是通过正常的地形遍历。 管道延伸 4 主要是操作风险暴露的是连接到一个离岸终端。 步骤 7:在活动水平中发展风险反应 风险管理小组通过头脑风暴开发以下每个伸展反应 因为错误的技术选择,恶劣的环境管理计划,政治上的制约因素,设计规范 差,错的实施方法,承建商表现欠佳,以及缺乏维护材料的交付时间表的供应商 以及许多其他原因,导致建设项目经常失败。 失败的原因可分为商业风险(外部)和操作风险(内部) 。除非他们解决在 项目初期规划阶段, 并进行策划和实施适当的对策,项目必然无法实现自己的目 标。 在传统的项目评估和规划方法,经常只为了证明解决商业风险投资。因此, 作为项目进度添加学习, 是需要额外的资源和知识为了按计划完成项目成果,在 许多情况下,这成为不可能。 分析项目风险分层优先考虑的活动,这弱势是难以同时实现时间,成本和质 量的成果。从而帮助完成的工作包,又成功完成项目。此外,它有助于识别各层 次风险(项目,工作包和活动) 。 项目级风险分析有助于确定减轻所选定的项目中选择目前的风险增加规划 风险最小的项目选择和调用。 工作包级别的风险分析,确定高风险的工作包和优 先考虑的工作包的风险漏洞的基础上额外的计划。 第二,它与每个工作包关联分析风险因素,每个风险的缓解措施工作包。活 动水平风险分析一方面识别高风险的工作包内的高风险活动, 另一方面,识别风 险因素,分析并获取响应。 风险分析使用分层方法不仅证明额外的规划和资源需 求在项目早期阶段,但也有助于实现项目进度、预算和规范。这项研究揭示了项 目层面受到外部风险, 工作包级别是受到外部和内部风险和内部风险活动水平的 影响。 使用层次分析法提出了风险管理框架可以帮助项目经理在项目计划阶段动

态决策与项目涉众的参与效果。 这提供了一个有效的监测和控制机制的项目在各 级管理组织实现。拟议的框架使用专家选择分析决定的情况。此外,层次分析法 的灵敏度效用风险管理集团提供了一个机会, 观察在不同的替代模型结果的性质 决定的情况。
