FMEA Score Graphs – Understanding and Interpreting
The Risk rating is based graphs on the Dashboard allow capturing a different picture of the study's current status. Instead of simply accumulating the binary information about whether the threshold of certain risk indicators was breached, a special preprocessing step was introduced. This step allows investigating the current status of sites for systematic behavior in the breaches of risk indicators.
A score for occurrence and risk rating is introduced.
The occurrence describes how often and how long thresholds were breached and takes into consideration past breaches as well. This way the score reflects systemic issues of a risk indicator and of individual sites.
As an example: a high occurrence score of a risk indicator suggests that the thresholds are breached by many sites and that the breaches are of systematic nature.
Risk Rating score can be viewed by choosing a concrete risk indicator in the ”Risk Monitoring” section and in the ”Site to Site Comparison” section (breakdown by sites).
If a risk is selected instead, the graph in “Risk Monitoring” section represents the mean occurrence and risk rating of each affected site and indicator.
If nothing is selected in the FMEA overview graph (“Risk Monitoring” section), a mean overall risk is displayed.
