Because organizations need to be able to deliver products and services at acceptable predefined levels, even in the wake of disruptive incidents, the number of enterprises implementing business continuity management (BCM) systems is increasing. However, during business continuity risk planning, difficulties are often encountered when attempting to determine the most appropriate BCM to implement. To solve this problem, we have developed a BCM implementation method for use in combination with event tree analysis (ETA), which is used to secure safety in engineering, and the program-evaluation-and-review-technique (PERT), which is used in operations research, and which also includes a function for showing analysis results in an easy-to-understand manner. We have also developed a system to support the above method and have confirmed the utility of the developed system by applying it to a small example.
