Why worry about something that isn't going to happen

A Bad Chairman Blames His (or Her) Tools - Part II
January 31, 2016
I previously commented on the potential 'bluntness' of our trusty hammer we call HAZOP and recently visited a site and saw a poster with a screenshot of a HAZOP worksheet but didn't recognise the application.
I eventually figured out it was Isograph Hazop+ which reminded me that there is a world beyond PHA-Pro and that other tools are available (albeit they are only as successful as those who use them i.e. facilitators & contributors).
Given that we've been using the HAZOP technique for over 40 years now and PHA software has assisted with this, does anybody have any experience or opinions on what the next big thing is (or will be) in Hazard Identification.
Will we be tied to our desk(top) or should we have our heads (and data) in the clouds ?
Wouldn't it be great if we could genuinely predict failures like the PreCogs in Minority Report.
Maybe we should all be developing our own PreHazard Units.
I know there are Pro's and Con's for local vs remote applications and would appreciate some unscientific feedback.
