Resilience Engineering Perspectives: Preparation and restoration
Erik Hollnagel, Christopher P. Nemeth, Sidney Dekker
Ashgate Publishing, Ltd., 2009 - Technology & Engineering - 288 pages
Preparation and Restoration addresses issues such as the nature of resilience; the similarities and differences between resilience and traditional ideas of system performance; how systems cope with varying demands and sometimes succeed and sometimes fail; how an organization's ways of preparing before critical events can enable or impede restoration; the trade-offs that are needed for systems to operate and survive; instances of brittle or resilient systems; how work practices affect resilience; the relationship between resilience and safety; and what improves or erodes resilience.
