... determined from currently available data, based on assumptions that a large number of future systems will, on the average, act the same way as a large number of similar past systems. Predicted risk is based on analysis of system, models, and historical data. Perceived risk is risk seen intuitively...

... inspections fall into VI, and up to 70% of the total of rejected components contain visual discrepancies. Although a significant proportion of them are referred to as “soft issues,” many reasons justify their rejection as posing a risk to the performance of the structure or element. Lighting plays a crucial...
