Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

The goal is to introduce theoretical rudiments and practical skills in decision-making processes and risk management in civil engineering and to introduce a practical analysis of process risks in subsequent projects (Project I and Project II) depending on specialisation - the building process, risk probability, maintenance and construction (all this in Project I and II). Check: a final test and a combined test. Planned learning activities and teaching methods

Summary

1. The basic definition of risk. Portfolio risk . Time and space. Hazard identification , qualification danger , risk quantification . 2. Basic concepts : the phenomenon and the event; danger and hazard scenario , the field hazards; probability and possibility ; injury and damage . 3. Types of risk and risk analysis . 4. Risks investor , developer, builder , designer , contractor and subcontractors. Risks of third parties. 5. The project , object, process , segments of the project , sources of danger. The dependence between phenomena and events ( existential , sequencing , statistical) . 6. Methods for controlling risks in the design and supply company . 7. Expert methods of FMEA, Umra . Decision-making methods , decision trees , probability, reliability , histograms . 8. Directly determined by probabilistic calculation , application analysis and risk management , Monte Carlo simulation method , classification and statistical approach . 9. Decision-making in technical practice, and practical use. 10. The use of experts , expert and expert activities , defects, damage and expression time independent of the size of the damage (practical examples ) . 11. Allocation of risk of project documentation , risks in the construction, the risk of these processes linked to input , process and output quality control of risks in the maintenance of the building. 12. The warranty period of the object in relation to the risk of changes to the risk assessment of the state of objects on the principles of risk analysis. 13. Determining the probability (or frequency ) of occurrence of risks appointed by each process and quantify the consequences , insurable and uninsurable risks in construction. 14. Possible risks of operational accidents , simulation of elementary tasks. 15. Recap .
