Conducting a design process requires managing many types of uncertainty. One can even view product design and development itself as a risk management process that reduces uncertainty in a structured manner from the step of generating the first product idea to launch of a product in the market. The Risk Management Processes and Methods in Design SIG (Risk SIG) studies design processes through the lens of risk management.
This workshop will focus on three key risk management activities: (1) risk identification (what are the potential problems); (2) risk assessment (how to estimate the likelihood and consequences); and (3) risk mitigation (how to reduce the risk).
The workshop will be divided into three discussions (one for each activity). Each discussion will begin with a brief presentation on the activity that reviews the fundamentals and the state-of-the-art in relevant research (including a bibliography). The participants will also contribute their expertise and ideas to the discussion, and each discussion will yield an outline of the critical concepts and techniques relevant to that activity.
Participants will be invited to contribute to revising the outlines and drafting a technical report that documents the workshop results.
