Engineering risk analysis allows identifying the weak points in a complex system and taking pro-active risk management measures. Dr. M. Elisabeth Paté-Cornell will describe the method and the use of the results to support lifecycle risk management and to set resource constraints (schedule and budget) anticipating their effects on the success of operations.

Dr. M. Elisabeth Paté-Cornell, elected to the National Academy of Engineering in 1995, and currently a member of its Council, has served on the Presidentâ??s Foreign Intelligence Advisory Board, and is currently a member of the Advisory Council of NASAâ??s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, and the Aerospace Corporation. ? Dr. Paté-Cornell is a world leader in research related to engineering risk analysis, risk management, decision analysis under uncertainty, and more generally, the use of Bayesian probability to process incomplete information. ? In recent years, her research has focused on the inclusion of both technical and organizational factors in probabilistic risk analysis models.?
