Course Project Part I
Select from one of the following major projects:
Create two fault or event trees (or one of each) that would support the exploration of risk for one of the above major construction projects (See Chapter 17, pages 216-220). The fault or event tree should offer at a minimum a listing of potential risks and impacts in the event of two smaller failures. For example, a smaller failure could be the loss of water pressure or a fire in a construction project rather than examining what risk was involved with the collapse of the construction project.
Write a discussion of risks that supports the fault trees that have been created. Make a separate write up for each of these smaller risks (Review Chapter 27, pages 357-369 for risks and treatments). Your paper should have a general introduction that should introduce the two fault or event trees that will be discussed and then the paper should have a discussion regarding each fault or event tree. The discussion write up regarding the identified risks should be from 3-5 pages in length. Note that this page length is a guideline and if you find that your paper supporting the risk tree is longer, there will be no penalty as the final assignment will need to be from 15-20 pages in length.
