Risk Management Plan

The Risk Management Plan contains the relevant processes and activities which will be conducted for product-specific risk management. In this case, it mainly references other documents because most risk management activities are part of the integrated software development process (SOP Integrated Software Development). Also, the risk policy and acceptability are defined in the Risk Acceptance Table, and the actual risks are in the Risk Table.
