Risk and opportunity management: an approach for the mechanical testing field
L2EC, 4 Rue des Frères Montgolfier, 95420 Magny-en-Vexin, France
Risk and opportunity management is a rising topic in the mechanical testing field. The importance of this issue was recently reflected in the newest version of ISO 17025 which emphasized requirements for risk assessment and opportunity taking. This article investigates the most important elements regarding the topic of risk and opportunity management in an environmental testing lab, considering a real case study of the “L2EC” laboratory. Taking the multiple areas of experimental work (climatic, vibration, mechanical, etc...), the study covers multiple areas of management and quality through a comprehensive quantitative framework. Elements of risk and uncertainty control, project planning, decision making and opportunity management are eventually translated into an applicable and coherent general road plan that fulfils and integrates well in the daily framework and strategy of the laboratory.
