# Risk analysis

From Superoptimization

For each risk we give the probability of it occurring (1-10) and the impact (1-3, with 1 being minor, and 3 being project killer). A mitigation is provided for any risk with an impact of 3, or where the product of likelihood and impact is greater than 10.

## Risk register

Description | Likelihood | Impact | Risk | Mitigation |
---|---|---|---|---|

Some features of modern processors cannot be superoptimized. | 7 | 2 | 14 | Attempt to identify ways of applying to these features. |

Computational demand is too high. | 5 | 3 | 15 | Focus on optimal algorithms. Ensure adequate compute power. |

Project is too complex for 4 months. | 5 | 2 | 10 | Tight project management (weekly meetings). |
