While FMEAs are a popular technique for performing risk assessments in the quality world, the level of detail makes them not so useful for high impact, low frequency (HILF) quality risk events such as loss of a key supplier. An alternative is the bowtie method, an excellent tool for evaluating causes, impact, and controls.

The bowtie method is based on the combination of the concepts of fault tree analysis and event tree analysis, but in a simple way. It is ideal for analyzing management level risks, with its visual nature making it easy for people to both contribute to and understand.

The webinar will demonstrate the use of the bowtie method for several risk assessments, as well as demonstrate how it can be tied into planning, reviews, and response for risk management.

  • The steps for identifying causes, the event, the likely impacts, and controls
