Abstract: This paper aims at building a system to aid, and in certain cases, perform the work of the project analysts. It deals with providing an ontology based web service to analyse each project based on the factors, relationships and constraints that constitute the respective project. Its main goal is to provide project analysts with a web service to aid them in identifying and assessing the risks involved in the project, allowing them to plan for avoiding, controlling and monitoring risks. The main motivation of the system is to provide a major incentive for the industry, by reducing the cost involved and the time spent on analysing projects, and removing the unnecessary resources spent on non-feasible projects. This proposed system aids risk analysts in analysing projects, products and services, and enhancing risk management techniques, thereby increasing the efficiency of the analytic process. It also performs the function of risk analytic for small scale and medium scale projects, and provides a scenario for risk analysts to compare current and previous projects.
