Quantitative risk analysis is a technique that is used to assess the risk exposure events to overall project objectives and determine the confidence levels of achieving the project objectives. Quantifying risk can help you identify some time and cost contingencies of a project. It further enhances the prioritization and scoring of risks produced during qualitative analysis.
