Everything we do in engineering involves risk - financial, time, opportunity, reputation, personal safety, and so much more. Being mindful of the higher or lower risks of one option vs. another can pay off ten-fold. From identifying unknowns at the start of a project, to evaluating the risks of making one change vs. another to an existing design later on, making informed decisions is critical to the endeavour.
