Title

Identifying Risk at the Conceptual Phase of Product Design: A Software Solution

Abstract

This paper introduces RED (Risk in Early Design) software developed by the R.I.S.K by Design Lab at University of Missouri-Rolla. The RED software is a risk analysis tool that enables failure prevention to begin during the conceptual phase of product design. The main focus of the paper is describing the software architecture and application. Its unique graphical user interface allows designers to simply select the functions of the system being designed and the software immediately generates a risk analysis report. This analysis categorizes risk likelihood and consequence elements for a product by translating the recorded information about function and failure. An example describing the software's use in the design process is also presented.
