Risk Analysis Techniques in Construction Engineering Projects

  title={Risk Analysis Techniques in Construction Engineering Projects},
  author={Daniel Baloi},
There is a great deal of risk analysis techniques and tools available for the management of risks. In principle, each risk analysis technique has its strengths and weaknesses. Techniques such as Probability Theory, Certainty Factors, Dempster-Shaffer Theory of Evidence and Fuzzy Logic are discussed with regard to their application to risk analysis in construction engineering projects. Suggestions on the most appropriate tools associated with the techniques are also presented. The strengths and… CONTINUE READING
