||Accident statistics indicate the need to consider more explicitly the contribution of human reliability to overall system safety. Although Human Reliability Analysis (HRA) is a critical component of any risk study, the deficiencies which characterise these techniques have limited their use. Such techniques may be improved by the use of computers, in particular the use of artificial intelligence and knowledge-based expert systems, which are especially suitable for solutions of problems requiring human judgement and experience. Uses of expert systems include hazard identification and assessment, decision-making, process control. An expert system called HERAX (Human Error/Reliability Analysis Expert) has been developed mainly for use as part of a probabilistic risk analysis of nuclear and process plants.
