Risk type 

To identify specific problems in your project, you first need to categorise the risks.  The project constraints are  well-organised in the PERIL database, which are further divided into subcategories on the basis of sources of risks. The below table represents the risks, grouped under project parameter, where it had largest effect, and then by its primary perceived root cause.

?  Scope creep: Results from modification of existing specifications which are beyond the scope of stated project objective.

?  Dependencies: Results from changes in the infrastructure of the project due to new version of system or any upgrades.
