Title: Risk-based maintenance revisited Description: Risk-based maintenance was developed at the same time as risk-based inspection but has not enjoyed the same popularity. There have been numerous scholastic articles written and even a standard developed which has now been withdrawn. However, with the latest developments in ‘Asset Management Systems’ and the ISO 5500x series, there is new interest being shown. Risk Based Maintenance is considered as a key strategic approach for maintenance within Asset Management. A Risk Based Maintenance (RBM) approach determines the most economical use of maintenance resources with the end goal of minimizing any risk of a failure. Assets that have a greater risk and consequence of failure are maintained and monitored more frequently while assets that carry a lower risk are subjected to less stringent maintenance monitoring, covering the risk/ cost/ performance criteria required by the Asset Management System. This presentation will cover the development of a Risk Based Maintenance system, from criticality analysis through risk-based maintenance strategy development and maintenance planning to using risk-based spares and repairs to meet the requirements of optimising cost, risk and performance.

Title: Engineers, frameworks and new ways of thinking Presenter: Warren Black, Principal and Founder, Complexus. Panelists: Geoff Hurst, Director, ENGENEOHS and Chair of the Risk Engineering Society of Engineers Australia Richard Robinson, Director, R2A Peter Flanagan, Lead Consultant, Capital Insight Description: This webinar is the first in a series to set out the fundamentals of risk management for engineers and examine the range of approaches in the engineering context. In this webinar, five major approaches to risk are introduced and the common elements of a risk management framework are identified. Every engineer needs to understand risk and how to manage it. Yet the application of risk management principles is subtlety different in every engineering context, which is as varied as the profession itself – spanning disciplines, industries, career stages and organisational applications. While there are some fundamental principles underpinning risk engineering, there are also a huge range of competing perspectives and approaches. If you think risk engineering is just the application of the ISO 31000 standard, you will be surprised at how the discipline has developed. A panel is included to introduce different perspectives and discuss frequently asked questions from the audience. This webinar series is suitable for engineers seeking to understand their day-to-day risk management responsibilities and challenge those with a basic understanding of the subject. It is an exceptional opportunity for continuing professional development in a practice that is relevant to every engineer at every stage of their career. This webinar series is part of multi-year project by the Risk Engineering Society to develop a Risk Engineering Body of Knowledge, capturing the diversity of perspectives and linking to international best practices.

    Title: Cost Risk Analysis and Project Risk Presenter: John Hollmann, Owner, Validation Estimating Description: Precise and effective decision making during development and delivery of major projects deeply depends on timely and reliable information including the range of possible project schedule/cost estimates due to possible risks and uncertainties. For preparing accurate and consistent plans, especially at the early stages of project development, estimators and risk analysts need to select a suitable quantitative risk analysis (QRA) method, or a combination of methods, for their decision on a reasonable and appropriate schedule/cost contingency allowance. In the selection of suitable methods of cost risk analysis (CRA) and depending on the project requirements, the presenter will discuss and highlight a number of key aspects of the cost risk models which need to be considered by practitioners to increase the quality and reliability of outcomes, including: use of empirical research and actual historical data; applicable to all projects - simple and complex, large and small, conceptual or detailed, and good or bad quality estimates and schedules; and simple enough that consultants are not needed except for an outside view of strategic projects. The presenter will also discuss recent research on cost growth, schedule slip and accuracy while providing his experience and recommendations on an integrated set of cost risk analysis approach for both owners and contractors. About the Speaker: John is the author of “Project Risk Quantification”, owns Validation Estimating, LLC (VE), works with capital program managers to improve cost estimating, project control and cost/schedule risk quantification practices. John regularly reviews major international estimates and conducts risk analyses in support of investment decision making and contingency setting. John is a frequent speaker at international conferences, has written many papers and was the lead author of the AACEi text; the Total Cost Management (TCM) Framework. John is an Honorary Life Member of AACEi and recipient of their Award of Merit. Prior to founding VE, John led the Cost Engineering Committee metrics and research efforts at Independent Project Analysis, Inc. John is a registered Professional Engineer, a Certified Cost Professional, a Certified Estimating Professional and Decision and Risk Management Professional.

Description: Aerospace safe design principles have been based on over 100 years of aviation experience since the Wright brothers’ experiments, and strong regulatory governance to protect the airborne crews and public transport users. Design and failure experience accelerated during the War years and became enshrined in Airworthiness Codes with international mutual agreements. The first formalised concepts of ‘Engineering for Safety’ were presented in 1946 to the Institute of Aeronautical Sciences using post-accident analysis to inform design and reduce error, that should as be a specialised discipline within engineering, requiring a place along-side the structures and aerodynamics groups. The need for quantitative methods was recognised early on, and gained acceptance as a tool for objectifying engineering judgements throughout the 60’s. A fundamental starting point was the concept of “risk budgets” for entire systems and attributing a 50/50 allocation between ‘performance’ and the accumulation of equipment ‘failures’. Historical evidence at the time, from civilian transport category aircraft, was that the frequency of serious accidents due to operational and airframe related causes was approximately one per million hours of flight. Further budgeting logic resulted in a civil certification quantitative system safety standard being established, as supplemental to the strict design rules. Other fundamental principles accompany the system safety requirements such as: established structural factors of safety, design requirements throughout the airworthiness codes, fail-safe design concepts, and the fact that no single point of component failure shall have the possibility to cause a catastrophic event. Airworthiness relies on these principles and underlying assumptions by continuing to underpin protective and corrective decisions made in-service, when aircraft defects or previously hidden or poorly understood failure modes arise – including those involving human performance. The probability of risk exposure and the level of safety owed to 3rd parties on the ground, in the air sharing the airspace (and on the road for Autonomous Cars) must now be a driving factor in deciding in “certification”. This interactive presentation will explain the background detail to these principles and the idea of a quantitative vs qualitative vs process basis for acceptable safety management, to support a discussion about these future risk based decisions. Short bio of first speaker – BJ Martin: BJ Martin is an accomplished senior aerospace engineer, initially serving 15 years in the Air Force, and now accumulating over 30 years broad experience in the fields of: aerospace & systems engineering, system safety, airworthiness certification in the capital acquisition project management environment.
