Abstract: Risk mitigation is essential for risk management because it aims to reduce or eliminate risks. To make the best use of resources, a scheduling strategy for risk mitigation is needed to determine the risks to be mitigated and when to mitigate them. The traditionally used strategy for scheduling risk mitigation, “risk value first strategy”, does not consider time elements of risk. Both PMI risk management framework and IEEE standard for software project risk management point out that time elements should be considered in risk mitigation. However, there is a lack of principles and guidelines on how to schedule risk mitigation with due consideration of these time elements. In this paper, we formally define scheduling strategy for risk mitigation, identify new scheduling strategies, and compare their performance by applying stochastic simulation.
