Risk-Based Thinking Step 5

Control Risks

If measures to control risks or protect new opportunities are not taken, threats that have thought to be mitigated may once again occur and opportunities that have led to improvements may degrade. Mechanisms to stabilize processes and hold gains made are necessary; while there are many other forms of control mechanisms, these eight provide a solid starting point.

  • Embrace Standard Work
  • Update Control Plans
  • (Revisit) Training
  • Conduct Internal Audits
  • Use GR&Rs (Gage Repeatability & Reproducibility Studies)
  • Deploy TPM (Total Predictive Maintenance)
  • Track First Time Quality
  • Evaluate Customer Satisfaction
