9. System Risk Management (SRM)

Risk Assessment Services for Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) – New York City Transit (NYCT)

CM-1561 Independent Quantity Risk Assessment Consultant Services: Agreement, dated May 27, 2015.

Providing a reliable budget for cost and date(s) of completion – before and after mitigation:
– For evaluating program alternatives (Partial or Full Shutdown).
– For risk-based permitting and funding.
– For a consistent risk-based controlling during project execution to periodically update & verify date of substantial completion, date of going back into revneue service and expected cost at completion.

Probabilistically aggregating all identified base elements, risks (including a mark-up for unknown risks, Unknown Knowns) and escalation to Total Project Cost by an integrated approach and model.

Task Order (TO) for quantitative and integrated cost & schedule risk assessments: Rehabilitation & Core Capacity Improvement of the L (CANARSIE) subway line. One of the last – and probably the most challenging – Sandy Recovery Projects.

As you can see, planning to shutdown a major subway artery in NYC for about 15 months is a daunting task …

Leadership Excellence for Safety & Health (LES&H)

"Human Failure ..." is communicated so often as the final cause of an accident. And - resigned - accecpted. And, therefore, no additional controls are planned, verified, implemented and followed-up.
Although the real root cause analysis will start (over again) with excactly this (intermediate) result ...
Why has the system triggered a situation in which humans "failed"?
The "Dirty Dozen" (by the US FAA) delivers tools for analysis and a way for planning additional mitigation.
With the potential to change human behavior towards safety sustainably.

KEEP PEOPLE AWAY FROM LIQUID STEEL (KPAFLS) Process/Safety Audit along the path of liquid steel to independently verify the implementation status of additional safety measures: Preparation, Briefing, Execution, Debriefing, Audit Report & Follow-up

Risk-based Maintenance (RbM) for Charging Crane C9712 - Task Order, October 1, 2018,
Reduce maintenance time & cost without losing reliability and availability by a System Safety Analysis (SSA) based on RAMS (Reliability, Availability, Maintenability, Safety) by a Fault Tree Analysis (FTA) with the potentiâl to combine with a Bow Tie Analysis to include risk controls:
- Identification of minimal cuts => A/B/C components verification
- Increase Reliability by additional redundancies
- Increase Availability by reducing critical failures and time to repair
- Basics for a Reliability/Availability-based Maintenance Programm
- Preparation, Briefing, Execution, Debriefing, Report & Follow-up
- Conclusions and tool for other cranes (systems)
- Moderation of Workshops in situ

System Safety Analysis (SSA) with a specific tool [Executive Summary/Workflow] for risk-based decision-making, verified @ Charging Crane C9712:
- Option 0: Targeted redundancy improvement by Maintenance Plus, or
- Option I: Retrofit by a Life Cycle Time Extension with an Anti-Aging Safety Program (by a Safety Case), or
- Option II: Replacement by a new system


Foster effective leadership to sustainably reduce critical incidents.

By a series of workshops with top management, supervisors and workers - with follow-ups. If it works in high-risk environments, it will work everywhere ...
And more often than not this approach is the only (remaining) efefctive way after a Safety Management System (SMS) has been establlished and everything reasonable by state-of-the-art has been implemented.

Helping our customers to control the effects of their uncertainties on their goals/projects (= risks) as pro-actively as possible. And developing a validated "Plan B", a safe way out if - and when - risks might materialize and/or desasters might strike.

Of course, we are very happy with so many mega, high-profile and legacy projects in our portfolio and refenence list. However, since 1994, we always and continually work for small and medium size enterprises (SME's), worldwide, as well. After all, we are a very small business ourselves - of course, we know their threats and opportunities very well based on our own experience.
