An Overview of Risk Analysis Methodology 780167

Historically the term Risk Analysis evolved from capital investment studies. However risk is inherent in product development, reliability and safety in addition to cost effectiveness analysis.

Sample results of a case study for new product development, which were subsequently used as inputs to a decision and control model are presented.
