Potential Risks

S/N Risk Type Description Likelihood Impact Level Threat Level Mitigation Plan
1 Technical Team is unfamiliar with some of the technology used (React framework, machine learning, NLP). High Medium A Team members will actively learn and discuss. Project Manager will assign more time to unfamiliar tasks.
2 Client Management Unexpected changes in client requirements, or growth of scope (eg. Change in gamification will be time-consuming to change). Medium Medium B Project Manager will be in constant communication with the sponsors and clients, and will regularly review the scope with them.
3 Project Management The schedule is planned based on macro functionalities, so small coding tasks may have been left out / time is underestimated due to lack of experience. Low Medium C Project Manager will review the project schedule and the time needed for each task, and make changes when necessary.



Risks Identified (Acceptance)

S/N Risk Type Description Likelihood Impact Level Threat Level Mitigation Plan
1 Client Management The clients are very busy as they are doctors and medical students. It is hard to arrange meetings to update them and gather their feedback. It is especially difficult to meet more than one doctor at a time, due to their busy schedules. High Low B The team will have to be more flexible in terms of meeting timings, and will likely go down to the hospitals to meet the clients.
2 Project Management Team members have other projects to work on, and some have term-time internship commitments. It can get difficult to arrange meeting times. Medium Low C Team members will regularly update the team calendar on when they are unavailable for meetings. Project Manager will select a timing that best fits the group, at least one week in advance.
3 Project Management Team members feel overwhelmed by the workload, and feel that they are increasingly burned out. Medium Low C Team members decided to drop one module this semester, and take only 4 modules during the FYP semester. This will lighten the workload, and let us have more time to focus on our project.


Risks Identified (Mid-Term)

1 Technical Ransomware attacks on Database Low High B System Architect to improve database security
2 Organizational New members in NUS MedSense Team Medium Medium B Project Manager will be in constant communication with new members, and will regularly review the scope with them.
3 Project Management Members falling sick or going overseas doing school period, reducing team's available manpower.

Risks Identified (Finals)

S/N Risk Type Description Likelihood Impact Level Threat Level Mitigation Plan
1 Project Management The schedule is planned based on macro functionalities, so small coding tasks may have been left out / time is underestimated due to lack of experience. Medium High A Project Manager will review the project schedule and the time needed for each task regularly, and make changes when necessary.
2 Client Management Client may request for changes to existing functionalities or request for new functionalities. These increases in scope may delay the project completion. Medium Medium B Team will have to consider expertise and time required. Project Manager will manage the expectations of the client.
3 Project Management Team members feel overwhelmed by the workload, and feel that they are increasingly burned out. Medium Low C Team members will limit the increases in scope, and prioritize functions in case functions need to be dropped.
