B9/F4-2:
Principles and Methods of ISO 31010

Course code: 181781
Language of instruction: English
Lecturers: Prof. Dr. Aleksandar S. Jovanovic (Steinbeis Advanced Risk Technologies GmbH)
Assessment: Defined in the module

Short description

The course deals with the issues related to practical implementation of ISO/IEC 31010 standard 31010:2009 (codified by The International Organization for Standardization and The International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC)). The standard itself intends to provide support for implementation of the main, ISO 31000 standard, giving principles of risk assessment and the risk management process. The course provides information as to the selection and application of the risk assessment techniques tackled in the standards and gives examples of application of single methods/techniques in engineering, insurance, finances and general risk analysis.

The emphasis of the course is on new and alternative methods (e.g. those expert opinion or big data oriented), which can be used for better identifying the risks and the reason for their occurrence, as well as for better assessing the probabilities and factors determining the consequences.
