Workshop Failure Mode Effect Analysis (FMEA) in Practice

Thursday, October 17, 2019
15:00- 18:00
Grand Café De Stal
Darwinweg 1, Leiden
During this workshop there are two interactive sessions after one another:
  • The components of a fictional LIMS
    (By Hans de Raad)
    In this interactive session the components of a fictional LIMS (Laboratory Information Management System) will be outlined. The system has several interfaces with lab-equipment (like scales and/or HPLC’s). Examples of certain components are the database server, the front-end application (GUI) and for the interfaces (network) connectivity and data-communication protocols come to mind. From these components the participants will be guided through the Failure Mode Effect Analysis (FMEA) method to perform a risk assessment. With this methodology failure modes and risks can be prioritized and potential counter measures can be identified.
  • Security awareness in the employees mindset
    (By Wouter Parent and Aagje de Quay)
    Getting security awareness in peoples behaviour is a huge challenge. Asking psychologists for the best method one will hear that naming and shaming is the most effective but least motivating way. How can IT specialists and managers stress the importance of working safely using positive and coaching tools? What does it take for IT specialists to remain motivated concerning this generally ungrateful task?
    An interactive gathering, with visual support, sharing experiences and solutions getting awareness into organisations in a positive way
