The techniques of probabilistic risk analysis are mostly applied in the nuclear industry, with regard to the problems of quantifying risk arising from human risk or human error. Fuzzy clustering or pattern recognition can be also used to provide a better safety. Fuzzy clustering is a special type of clustering analysis that permits an object to belong to a cluster with a grade of membership and is better able to deal with ambiguity in the data and incomplete information. Based on statistical process control technology, a fuzzy clustering method is used to find out the most likely cause of any accident.
