Our motivation is to determine whether risks such as im- plementation error-proneness can be isolated into three types of con- tainers at design time. This paper identifies several container candidates in other research that fit the risk container concept. Two industrial case studies were used to determine which of three container types tested is most effective at isolating and predicting at design time the risk of im- plementation error-proneness. We found that Design Rule Containers were more effective than Use Case and Resource Containers.
