NRA (Network Risk Analysis)
Quality method which helps to analyze the inherent risks of complex, cross-linked systems.
By letting each of the individual risky modules pass their risks on to their successors via signal paths, the signal flow in the network is simulated. These successors absorb the risks and pass it on to their successors etc., now along with their own risks.
This leads to an overview of the entire network with its own risks and the inherited risks which together form an overall risk per module.
