This article discuss the characteristics of the risk engineering process that would need to be generated in order to properly bring a designed system to market. First, the current status of risk engineering will be discussed from a design perspective by defining and explaining what is meant by key words such as “risk” and “risk engineering process”. The general goals of the risk engineering process for an example fuel cell-based distributed cogeneration system (FC-Based DCG) will be noted before finally discussing the specific objectives, functions, procedure, & expected results of the risk engineering process for the system.
