    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.
