49th ESReDA Seminar

Several research projects and programs on system safety engineering and Quantitative Risk Analysis in the last 40 years offered very strong evidence of the crucial role that human and organizational factors (HOFs) play in major accidents. According to this increasing concern toward the relevance of HOFs in limiting safety performance of complex socio-technical systems, considerable research effort has been spent worldwide in the last couple of decades. This resulted in a quite rich literature covering areas from theoretical bases, to accident investigation methods and application to major disasters, to very sophisticated modelling approaches and techniques of HOFs in Quantitative Risk Analysis. Nevertheless, many of the models and applications described in scientific literature demonstrated a limited impact and a lack of integration with the standard procedures and the technical standards applied for the evaluation of the safety of critical equipment and infrastructures, resulting in to non-optimized management of risks.

50th ESReDA Seminar on 25 years of ESReDA Seminars:

This is the 50th ESReDA seminar on RAMS related topic. As it conducts 2 seminars per year, it implies it has conducted seminars for 25 years. World has changed a lot in the past 25 years. It is an exceptional opportunity to review the status of reliability and safety engineering disciplines by comparing the past learnings to today ones  in order to predict the trends of the future.

40th ESReDA Seminar on Risk Analysis and Management Across Industries

The growing complexities of equipment and systems, as well as the rapidly increasing cost incurred by loss of operation as a consequence of failures, have brought to the forefront the aspects of Reliability, Availability, Maintainability and Safety (RAMS).

41st ESReDA Seminar on Advances in Reliability-based Maintenance Policies
Maintenance is defined ( IEC 60-300 3-14) as the combination of all technical and ad ministrative actions, including supervision actions, intended to retain an item in, or restore it to, a state in which it can perform a req uired function.
42nd Seminar on on Risk and Reliability for Wind Energy and other Renewable Sources
The coming decade should see a huge expansion of renewable energy systems, in particular of offshore wind systems. Many risk and reliability related problems for such systems are open and many may still be unarticulated.
