Methodological errors in risk analysis - insights from back-castingProceedings of the Society for Risk Analysis 6th annual conference UQ (2011)
This paper examines Contributing Factors Frameworks (CFFs) and critiques the central assumption that classification schemes necessarily yield reliable meaning. The argument proposes that classification may yield meaning under certain strictly controlled circumstances, but inadequate recognition of the assumptions underlying CFFs inevitably leads to errors intrinsic to the process of classification.
