This is an expert model based on opinions elicited by the ship power plant operators. The risk level depends, among other things, on the reliability state of the ship propulsion system components. This state is defined by operators in a linguistic form. The formal risk model parameters are determined by means of a neural network. The model may be useful in the ship operation decision processes.}, issn = {2083-6473}, publisher = {Gdynia Maritime University, Faculty of Navigation}, keywords = {Fuzzy-Neuron Model, Ship Propulsion Risk, Risk Analysis, Immediate Catastrophic Failure (ICF), Risk Prediction, Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP), Casualty Analysis Tool} }
