Risk Mitigation for a Project
In the Risk Mitigation area for a Project, you can view the number of -

  • Features / Requirements with High Priority and High Impact Risk
    To learn more, use the Requirement List for this Project for a full report with drill down capabilities
    The report includes the Business Priority, IT Priority and Risk Impact columns.
  • Features / Requirements with higher actual testing efforts than estimated
    To view or change this information per Requirement, use the Requirement Test Plan tab
  • Features / Requirements with actual Development efforts higher than estimated
    To view or change this information per Requirement, use the Development tab
  • Conflicts between Features in this project
    Displays Features within this project that might be impacted by a common entry point.
    You can view the Entry Points associated with each Requirement by selecting the Risk Analysis tab per Requirement.
  • Tests not mapped to features / requirements
    To fix this, define a Test Plan for these Requirements
  • Features / Requirements with High Priority and Open Defects
    Panaya analyzes the number of Critical and High priority Defects within this Project.
    The number of Critical and High priority Defects is then compared with the total number of Requirements in this Project, to calculate risk.
    Good to Know!
    A Defect can be associated with more than one Requirement

Risk Mitigation for a Release
In the Risk Mitigation area for a Release, you can view the number of -

  • Requirements with High Priority and High Impact Risk
    To learn more, use the Requirement List for this Release for a full report with drill down capabilities.
    The report includes the Business Priority, IT Priority and Risk Impact columns.
  • Requirements implementation impacting Frequently Used Entry Points in Production
    Since Panaya collects usage statistics from Production, you can view how many Frequently Used Entry Points are impacted by the change. You can view the Entry Points associated with each Requirement by selecting the Risk Analysis tab from within a Requirement.
  • Conflicts between Features in this release
    Displays Features within this release from projects that might be impacted by common entry point.
    You can view the Entry Points associated with each Requirement by selecting the Risk Analysis tab per Requirement.
  • Requirements with High Priority and Open Defects
    Panaya analyzes the number of Critical and High priority Defects associated with this Release.
    Panaya will only consider Defects that are associated with Tests that are linked to Requirements that are assigned to this Release.
    The number of Critical and High priority Defects is then compared with the number of Requirements in this Release, to calculate risk.

Project / Release Risk
Use the Risk Spider chart to quickly realize the risk of all areas of your Release - 

Panaya will calculate the risk of each Risk Spider area, by the percentage of segmented activities shown below.

For Requirements / Features and Tests -

  • Low risk - Lower or equal to 10%
  • Medium risk - Greater than 10% but lower or equal to 50%
  • High risk - Greater than 50%

For Defects

  • Low risk - Lower or equal to 10%
  • Medium risk - Greater than 10% but lower or equal to 20%
  • High risk - Greater than 20%
