Risk Analysis

The following shows the main risks identified for this project, as well as contingency actions for each risk.

Title Liklihood x Impact = Priority Action to Prevent/Manage Risk
Loss of personnel 2 x 4 = 8 ECS has many experienced staff and members of the team have the knowledge, experience and ability to support staff and to take over each other’s roles at critical moments if required.
Interest of users 2 x 8 = 16 User interest has been confirmed among a number of schools who will be involved in the co-design and evaluation and will be maintained as the project will support users in existing research and provide a more learnable and adaptable tool that is currently available to them.
Keeping to planned timetable 2 x 8 = 16 An initial study has been conducted to demonstrate the feasibility of the proposed ALUIAR system. The team are very experienced at successfully completing funded projects to time and have the required technical and managerial expertise and support of the institution and will meet regularly to ensure the project runs to plan.
Addressing boy Usability and Accessibility Issues 2 x 8 = 16 Synote was designed with both accessibility and usability in mind (and was closely linked with the development of UDIM though the users and innovations programme) and the ALUIAR project team includes experts on addressing both accessibility and usability issues and if required also has easy access to other HCI experts within ECS and beyond.

Likelihood scored as Very Low = 1, Low = 2, Medium = 3, High = 4, Very High = 5
Impact scored as: Very Low = 1, Low = 2, Medium = 4, High = 8, Very High = 16
