Mapping Systems Resilience


Mapping Systems Resilience

Presented by David Skegg



Although resilience often is defined in the context of how a “system” behaves to recover from an abnormal circumstance, resilient performance is more than that. A system is said to perform in a manner that is resilient when it can sustain required operations under both expected and unexpected conditions by adjusting its functions prior to, or following events (changes, disturbances, and opportunities). Resilience engineering (RE) looks for ways to enhance the ability of systems to succeed under varying conditions. Resilience is not a single quality as such, and a system cannot be typified as “resilient” nor is resilience a measurable quality as such – it is better to describe the system performance as being resilient in a defined context.

Key takeaways

  • Gain a better understanding of resilience
  • Understand how to assess resilience potential
  • Developing a model of resilience potential inputs
