In cosmetic exposure, let’s explore if the majority (80%) of product exposure to a population is caused by a minority (20%) of products. To tell whether this 80/20 rule holds true we will need to calculate the aggregate exposure of cosmetic products to the population.
This technique of running many simulations is known as the Monte Carlo method, a category of modelling techniques that has and is gaining currency in many different areas, particularly with increases in computational capability.
Around the start of 1900s Arthur Guinness Son & Co. set out to hire the best scientists to analyse data concerned with aspects of their brewing process.
Risk ranking is a technique that can be used to identify the most significant risks, thereby prioritising them in a given situation to enable efficient and effective management decision making.
