Risk Management > Setup > Base > Priority model

Use this form to assign a calculation model to a risk and define the priority model and priority scale related to the risk type. When creating a Risk, the priority of the risk is determined by the type of risk, the likelihood that the risk can occur and the impact that the risk could possibly have on the Service area. Determining this priority can be done by either a calculation or by using a Priority matrix as it was defined in the Priority scale. Each of the Priority scales are related to a Model, and each Risk type indicates the model to use.
