Abstract [en]

Risk-informed categorisation is based on utilising PSA information in a consistent wayto select most cost-effective methods to control risk associated with systems, structuresand components. In the presented method, an item’s risk significance is broken in twoparts: probability of failure and the consequence of failure. Higher value in either willpossibly mean a higher risk category, depending on the limit values for each category.Risk categorisation aims at identification of items for improved reliability or addedredundancy, versus the mostly reliability enhancing measures in safety classification.
