Community Research and Development Information Service - CORDIS


The JRC is involved in several projects in which knowledge-based systems, information technology and risk assessment methodology are brought together to provide advanced tools for safety assessment and management of complex industrial systems. One of these projects has led to the development of a functional and structural representation model of a plant, on which various risk analysis tasks could be performed, using CAD tools. The system described is made up of an editor, which allows the creation of a functional layout of a chemical plant, a directly attached risk assessment tool, which shows the user the causes of process parameter deviations, and a frame management system. The whole is an expert system; its realisation is based on an object-oriented implementation.
