Abstract

The requirements of the EU framework directives and national legislation demand the implementation of systematic steps within the scope of risk management. The task is therefore to develop devices with an acceptable value of residual risk and to undertake the steps of technical and human risk assessment in existing workplaces. These requests inspired the members of this team to develop an expert system which is able to utilize the selected method of risk assessment as a part of the production documentation preparation carried out by the Computer Aided Production Planning System Sysklass. This solution uses the approach of concurrent engineering where several steps can be undertaken simultaneously during the production process in order to reveal errors which may later result in death, health, system or environmental damage. The properties of the proposed expert system make it suitable for usage in the student training process at our university and in the safety management of smaller and middlesized companies. Keywords: residual risk, acceptable risk, danger, threat, expert system.
