Any activity can be risky. Risk levels can vary depending on the object, size, processes, members, and activity environments. The analyzed object or processes are subject to political, economic, and social conditions. Risk management is a process that involves defining sources of uncertainty (risk identification), estimating the consequences of uncertain events/conditions (risk analysis), and generating response strategies in the light of expected outcomes. Finally, risk management is based on feedback regarding the actual outcomes and risks. The feedback is received while carrying out identification, analysis and response generation steps repetitively throughout the relevant activity to ensure that the set objectives are met. Risk evaluation attributes are selected considering the interests and goals of object or process, as well as factors that influence decision process efficiency and value creation.
Traditionally, risk assessment processes need to consider several different criteria; therefore, Multi-Criteria Decision Making (MCDM) approaches, and other risk assessment methods are usually used for this purpose.
This Special Issue welcomes articles that offer economic, social, technical and environmental benefits from risk management solutions involving, various decision-making methods, methodologies, models, algorithms and tools for rational decision making.
