German version RiskWare:   Technological and Environmental   Risk Analysis

Technological and environmental risk analysis is a major application domain for model-based decision support systems.

RiskWare supports three major application domains in a common, fully integrated environment with shared data bases:

  •   risk assessment
  •   risk management
  •   technical training

The RiskWare management information system is designed to support implementation of risk management regulations such as the Seveso II Directive (96/82/EC) of the European Union and related national legislation.

The RiskWare system combines data bases (hazardous installations, safety reports, hazardous substances MSDS, etc.) with an environmental GIS and a number of dynamic assessment models for the simulation and evaluation of accident scenarios.

All tools can be embedded in   RTXPS,   a real-time expert system framework for command and control tasks, that provides operational guidance for emergency management based on context sensitive, intelligent instruction manuals expressed in the systems KnowledgeBase.

A modular object oriented design, client-server implemenation, interactive and dynamic analysis with state-of-the-art simulation models, extensive artificial intelligence features, multi-media formats, and support for Internet access to risk information are main features of the system.

RiskWare is an integrated risk management information and decision-support system available both in stand-alone workstation implementations and as a distributed, web-based client-server system integrating high-preformance cluster computing for real-time performance; RiskWare integrates the results of a series of international RTD projects:



CENVIS   the third generation risk management information system for the Netherlands, national scope;

A-TEAM   Advanced Technical training for Emergency Assessment and Management, an IST RTD Project funded by the European Commission;

DCAG   Chemical Process Industry: Plant level accident scenarios for Ammmonia release:   Donauchemie AG, Pischelsdorf, Lower Austria

HITERM   High-Performance Computing and Networking for technological risk assessment and management, an Esprit HPCN DSS Project;

NIR   risk assessment for Non-Ionizing Radiation, a case study of Liguria, Italy;

XENVIS   A technological risk assessment information system for the Netherlands;

GRIBS   An information system for chemical, biological, and nuclear hazards for the City of Basel, Switzerland;

SIGRIC   SIstema di Gestione RIschio Chimico, an implementation for the province of Pisa, Italy.

Hazardous Chemicals, MSDS:   a part of the industry oriented EMIS environmental management information system for industrial estates and RiskWare, a data base of hazardous chemical provides the physico-chemical and toxicological data for various risk simulation models, EIA, and EMAS/ISO 14001 assessment.
Industrial Waste Streams: another component of RiskWare and the industry oriented EMIS a data base of industrial waste streams (based on the US RCRA model) provides the physico-chemical and toxicological data for various risk simulation models, EIA, and EMAS/ISO 14001 assessment, as well as inputs for a waste treatment optimization module.
