The Risk and Cost Card allows the evaluation of risk or costs as well as the relationship between a risk and possible costs. It can be used to catalog either risks alone, costs alone, or risk/cost combinations.
|Risk||The risk being considered. May include risk categories from risk management. The probability should be described as a percentage. The incident amount includes a cost/damage that would occur if the risk happens. The reoccurrence would include a possible repeatable time and volume.||N/A|
|Risk Mitigators||These are elements in the architecture, the context or the organization which will or can mitigate the risk.||N/A|
|Design Impacts||These are specific design elements that would be used to mitigate or address the risk.||View/Viewpoint, Decision Record|
|Cost(s)||The cost or cost(s) to be considered. The total amount represents a way of calculating TCO of the include cost(s).||N/A|
|Cost Alternatives||Options to avoid the cost.||Decision Record|
|Cost Impact Considerations||The design implications and or decisions which are impacted by the cost.||View/Viewpoint, Decision Record|
