Purpose of the annual meeting

The Annual Meeting is designed to share current efforts of the Common Aviation Risk Models Group among the existing members and new participants to the CARM activities. Guests are welcome to attend and participate to gain an understanding of the progress being made collaboratively in the area of BowTies and aviation risk management. There is no fee to attend.

What is CARM?

CARM involves the joint development and sharing of BowTie risk models by industry experts. Models will cover the key hazards associated with all aspects of aviation operations. On a global basis, CARM becomes the place where risk understanding can be captured and incorporated continuously. It moves the process away from the existing one-shot accident/investigation/actions process to a global learning “engine.”
