Strength and Weakness of Software Risk Assessment Tools

  title={Strength and Weakness of Software Risk Assessment Tools},
  author={A. M. Sharif and S. Basri and H. Ali},
There are different models and methods in the literature that assess risks in software projects. But few of these models and methods propose visualized software risk assessment tools that help project managers to visually identify, analyze, and prioritize risks in software projects. In this paper, a summary of these tools are presented with a detailed explanation of the strength and weaknesses of these software risk assessment tools that are found in the literature.
