WHEN PROBABILISTIC COST AND schedule modeling was done, the Project Curiosity probabilistic risk report was prepared by the project team and validated by a third party. It became part of the project risk report prepared as part of the package of documents for the decision gate preceding Define. All probabilistic modeling scenarios were done for two cases: uncertainty exposure as-is and uncertainty exposure anticipated for the end of Define (to-be-final investment decision [FID]).
Some of the recommendations of the decision gate review board were a surprise to many Project Curiosity stakeholders and the project team.
KEY POINTS OF THE PROBABILISTIC ANALYSIS REPORT
Schedule Analysis Outcome
The results of the schedule risk analysis for the two main cases, as-is and to-be-FID, are represented by Figures 16.1 and 16.2. The as-is case is based on current uncertainty exposure by the end of Select. The to-be-FID case is thought as anticipated uncertainty exposure by the end of Define, which corresponds to FID.
