A Focus on Quality – Risk Management in Accordance with DIN EN ISO 14971

The new before/after risk matrix in CAQ.Net allows you to conduct effective and precise risk management in accordance with DIN EN ISO 14971. Calculate levels of risk and make the correct decisions based on detailed analysis.

The before/after risk matrix

What is Risk Analysis?

We all conduct risk analysis in our everyday lives. Every time we weigh up the probability of something happening and the resulting degree of severity, we are conducting risk analysis. If you leave the house when it is raining, the prospect of getting wet is very high. The degree of severity, however, is low. You’ll simply get wet.

If you don’t put on your safety belt in the car, the probability of something happening is comparatively low. However, if something does happen, the severity of what may happen can be dramatic. The ‘risk matrix’ is used in risk management in order to weigh up precisely these types of correlation between probability and severity, and to ascertain a risk parameter.

Visualize the Risks: The Before/After Risk Matrix in CAQ.Net

The before/after risk matrix in CAQ.Net® allows you to schematically track the effectiveness of inspections or alterations of construction that have been carried out. If the frequency of an error in a product decreases after a change has been effected, this will show up in the ‘after’ matrix. Here’s an example: a wrongly fitted clamp causes a hose to leak. If inspections are introduced to ensure that the clamp is fitted correctly, then the risk parameter will decrease along with probability.

CAQ.Net and DIN EN ISO 14971: The Pinnacle of Risk Management

The DIN EN ISO 14971 standard is used in the production of medical equipment and helps ensure that strict government regulations are fulfilled. A flawless risk management system is, of course, necessary in countless other sectors of industry as well. CAQ.Net® software allows you to apply this highly effective standard and to conduct the most comprehensive and efficient form of risk management available.
