The 13th FRAMily meeting/workshop,May 27th - 29th 2019
The 13th International Workshop on the Functional Resonance Analysis Method (FRAM) was hosted by Universidad de Málaga May 27-29, 2019 in Málaga, Spain. The workshop began with an optional half-day FRAM tutorial on May 27, and continued with two full days of meetings and discussions on May 28 & 29.
On the Thursday and Friday preceding the FRAMily meeting, an International Workshop on “Safety-II in Practice” took place in Lisbon. Please refer to the separate call for that event at http://safetysynthesis.com/wrkshp_2019.html.
Aim of the workshop
The aim of these workshops, affectionately referred to as the FRAMily meetings, is to share experiences from research and practice using the FRAM for systems modelling, event and safety analyses, design, or similar applications. Users are encouraged to share their experiences of strength and weaknesses of the method and to provide ideas for further developments.
The workshop was open to everyone regardless of their level of experience with the FRAM; the topics of the workshop addressed the uses of the FRAM in a variety of fields. As with previous workshops, this one featured the FRAM in safety investigations, risk analyses, work studies, performance management, planning, and design in different industries as well as academia.
Participating in these workshops provides an opportunity to:
•Discuss and exchange experiences on the use of the FRAM for modelling and analysing socio-technical systems.
•Receive support on individual FRAM applications and industry projects.
•Learn about the latest developments and application areas of the FRAM, including the FMV (FRAM Model Visualiser).
•Get a broader perspective on the potential of the FRAM for other applications.
