Risk Management is a non-intuitive field of study, where the most simple of models consist of a probability multiplied by an impact. Even understanding individual risks is difficult as multiple probabilities can contribute to Risk total probability, and impacts can be ""units"" of cost, time, events (for example, a catastrophe), market states, etc. This is further complicated by there being no straightforward approach to consider how multiple risks will influence one another or increase the overall risk of the subject of analysis. Risk management tools allow planners to explicitly address uncertainty by identifying and generating metrics, parameterizing, prioritizing, and developing mitigations, and tracking risk. These capabilities are very difficult to track without some form of documentation or, with the advent of information technology, software application. Simple risk management tools allow documentation.
More sophisticated tools provide a visual display of risks, while the most cutting edge, such as those developed by Air Force Research Laboratory Headquarters, are able to aggregate risks into a coherent picture. A few tools have predictive capability, which, through collaboration between partners allow fair partition of risks and improvement of business relations.
