The article is devoted to the problem of a quantitative estimation of limiting characteristics for the industrial enterprise. Two ways are used to design the method of formalizing economic risk factors. The method is based on FERMA standard,on the one hand, and, on the other hand, it is established on business process decomposition connected with economic risk factors and characteristics of the industrial enterprise performance. The second method implies taking anti-risk activities. The probable maximum loss is determined in accordance with the analog historical simulation in finance’s value at risk (VaR) for the industrial enterprise.
