What’s Resilience Engineering?

The notion of probabilistic risk has contributed greatly to the improvement of safety and security of society so far. As the scale and the complexity of sociotechnical systems have increased and technologies have been tightly coupled with society, people have recognized that the conventional approaches for risk management are insufficient. New approaches for risk management are now desired in various domains, in particular, having experienced the Lehman shock and the Tohoku Earthquake.

From the above background, the notion of resilience is now drawing attention of researchers and practitioners. Resilience is the intrinsic ability of a system to absorb impacts of internal or external disturbances added to the system so that it can sustain the requested functionality or can recover rapidly from damages under both expected and unexpected conditions.

Resilience engineering is a field of study where:

  • principles
  • methodologies,

for realizing such resilient sociotechnical systems are to be sought.
