A whole framework for any association on attaining resilience within the occasion of terrorist assaults, common mess ups, or inner failuresThe research of resilience encompasses the tactics, disciplines, and infrastructure that must be in position to count on and stop significant injuries, continue to exist unheard of disruptions, and preserve structures operation. Architecting Resilient platforms provides a framework for implementation that either private and non-private businesses can use as a consultant to constructing approaches for expecting, surviving, and getting better from disruptions. hoping on an unusual point of familiarity with present examine and traditional methods courses are run in undefined, this source offers rules which may be utilized to an intensive variety of process forms and environments. assurance includes:A platforms method of treating resilience—including either holistic and analytical tools within which structures architecting performs an important roleThe administration and technical methods essential to clutch process resilience, and the interplay among themApproaches that go away from authorized practices in and governmentIlluminating case histories—from chemical to civil infrastructure to aircraft—along with comparisons that establish similaritiesA dialogue of and prompt techniques to facing cultural mindsets that may be damaging to process resilienceEnd-of-chapter problemsMeeting the global call for for an implementation method of structures resilience, this well timed consultant can be utilized as a textbook in collage classes or as a reference for practising engineers, platforms architects, expertise managers, executive firms, and any enterprise specialist whose position is to devise for ordinary and human-made disruptions.

Example text

The most common approaches are training and speeches by executives. These approaches have been shown to be singularly ineffective. Other popular approaches include creating teams and established processes. The jury is still out on these approaches also. Organizational psychologists favor methods of 28 SYSTEM RESILIENCE AND RELATED CONCEPTS self-discovery, such as communities of practice described by Wegner (1998). In any case, the silver bullet has not been found. Hence, much more research is needed in this area.

These negative interactions are result in disruptions, which cause near misses and accidents. Chapter 3, Disruptions, discusses the two types of disruptions, each of which may require a different response: Type A disruptions—degradation of input—or Type B disruptions—degradation of systemic internal function, capability, or capacity. The most resilient systems avoid, survive, and recover from both types of disruption. This chapter discusses all three types of disruption and gives examples of each one.

Pate´-Cornell (1990) published the ground-breaking paper on the North Sea oil platforms. Reason (1997), Leveson (1995), and Chiles (2002) also analyzed many such accidents. Hollnagel et al. (2006) go a step further; they present a set of concepts and precepts that form the attributes of a resilient system, that is to say, a system that is not prone to accidents and will survive major disruptions and continue to function. The focus of this book, however, is implementation. That is to say, how does a government agency, a developer, an operator, or a maintenance organization put into place an organizational and technical system to address the root causes identified by these authors?
