    Abstract

    A project is currently in progress in Finland in which risk management case studies are carried out in three different domains, that is, in space, chemical process, and maritime technologies. The main objective of the project is to provide hands-on experience on the ESA technical risk management methodology and the new ERES prototype software tool. The experience gained can be used to support their industrial use in Finland and their potential transfer into new application domains. Systematic modelling of the accident and failure scenarios utilising the traditional Hazard Analysis and FMECA methodology is an important part of the case studies as well as the quantification of the risks associated with the identified scenarios. In particular, the ERES prototype software package is used in the case studies to support the overall technical risk assessment and management process.
