Risk Management: severity - probability AND detectability

I'm looking for a plugin to manage risks, but the plugin needs to register 3 components (like described by GAMPv5): severity - probability AND detectability.


I've found an article on 'Risk Register', but they misuse the plugin a bit: https://radbeeqms.com/risk-analysis-in-jira/


Is there a plugin to capture these 3?

I can't see one that goes beyond the standard 2-dimensional severity/probability combination.

I think there's a market for a 3d version, but I don't know how large it might be.  Sadly, that means I suspect you'd have to write one for yourself.

Hi Tom, 

We are currently developing the 3-parameter one with Detectability for RPN as an upgrade to our current SoftComply Risk Manager - https://marketplace.atlassian.com/apps/1216361/softcomply-risk-manager?hosting=server&tab=overview.

Please let me know if you have any other specifics you need to take into account in your risk management process that we could help you with - marion@softcomply.com

Kind regards, Marion

Hi Marion,

That is great! Thanks.

We've implemented now a 3-parameter version into the current 2 parameters, but it is not very user-friendly: you have to think to much to enter the combination of "impact/severity" and the matrix is not very readable.

Yes, I can see what you mean. The image you've included there depicts our Risk Register add-on. How do you think the risk register should appear when it has a three-dimensional mapping?

I'm interested to know how a three-dimensional risk register would be represented visually; can you point me to a relevant web page?

Hi David,

Indeed, it is not easy to fit it in a single matrix. But 2 different matrix like described in GAMP 5 is readable:
