Risk Management Through the Project and Class

Posted on: September 6th, 2018 by admin No Comments

Risk Management Through the Project

In modern life, risk management is a fundamental discipline for success. This does not just apply to work life, or project management but also personal life. Today we are going to discuss the approaches and impacts on the project when there is insufficient attention to the risks to which the project will be subjected.  The risks to which our work will be subjected depends upon the what we are doing and how we go about doing it, that is, the strategies and tactics we employ to reach the objective.

Consider an automotive project to develop a new product. This will require understanding the need, creating the design, develop the manufacturing line and verify and validate the product and the manufacturing line, and ultimately launch the product at the production rate. We demonstrate in our SAE book, an example of how these phases work and how these phases share information.

Risk Management Class

We have also developed a risk management class for The Society of Automotive Engineering International that works through the risk management process, tools and techniques, and then works through each of the work phases to explore the things that can go wrong and things we can do to reduce the risk where possible.  For example, the risks during evoking the requirements, are different than the risks associated with setting up the manufacturing line.  We will explore each of these phases, use tools and techniques to discover what can go wrong, and ideas for how to reduce the risk or even eliminate those risks.

Visit the Society of Automotive Engineering website (the link is https://www.sae.org/learn/content/wb1629/ ) where you can register for this distance learning event in which Jon M Quigley will be the instructor.
