RISSB, on behalf of the National ALCAM Committee, is pursuing a project to facilitate a step change in the IT software supporting ALCAM (The LXM system). The risk model itself isn’t changing but we’re working on a system refresh.
The key deliverable of this project will be to improve the accessibility and useability of the LXM System, with a view to future proofing the product. We’d love to hear your thoughts on the current LXM System and
how it can be improved. Please email your comments, suggestions and improvements to email@example.com.
This is just one exciting project we have underway in the ALCAM space, and we look forward to sharing the others with you as soon as we can.
