Resilience Engineering is a new approach to safety and risk management. Whereas conventional approaches to system safety are dominated by hindsight and emphasize error tabulation and probabilistic risk analysis; Resilience Engineering emphasizes an organisations ability to adjust its functioning; prior to or following changes and disturbances; so that it can sustain operations even after a major mishap or in the presence of continuous stress.

A common description of a resilient system is a system that has:

  • the ability to respond; quickly and efficiently; to regular disturbances and threats;
  • the ability to monitor continuously for irregular disturbances and threats; and to revise the basis for monitoring when needed; and
  • the ability to anticipate future changes in the environment that may affect the system’s ability to function; and the willingness to prepare against these changes even if the outcome is uncertain.

Resilience engineering provides the methods by which a system’s resilience can be gauged or measured; and the means by which a system’s resilience can be improved. Resilience has for many decades proven to be a useful construct in analyzing the persistence; stability and flexibility of ecological systems.

The Resilience Engineering workshop is organised by the Cognitive Systems Engineering Laboratory at the Department of Computer and Information Science; Linköping University. The workshop is an opportunity to discuss Resilience Engineering and its implications for research and practice in; among other disciplines; system safety; risk analysis; system design; and accident analysis.
