Previously, the emphasis was on obtaining information from clients. In this chapter, the emphasis was on preparing witnesses for trial. To properly prepare witnesses for trial, the paralegal needs to….
Evaluate the data sources that have been found and identify and describe differences that may require the data to be adjusted before applying them in the risk analysis.
You are going to do a risk analysis of a proposed new ship concept with a new type of hybrid machinery that is a combination of a traditional diesel-driven engine and an electrical energy powered by batteries. The electrical engine will be used when there is sufficient power in the batteries, but for the rest of the time, the diesel engine will be used.The electrical engine is a novel type that has not been used for marine applications earlier, whereas the diesel engine is a standard marine engine. You want to determine the probability that power will be lost and have found two data sources that provide data. One data source covers traditional marine diesel engines and the other data source covers electrical engines in general, for use in land-based applications (not ships). The first data source contains data for a total period of 20 years, up to now, whereas the second data source is much more limited, covering only 5 years. Evaluate the data sources that have been found and identify and describe differences that may require the data to be adjusted before applying them in the risk analysis. The differences should only be described qualitatively.
