A complete framework for any organization on achieving resilience in the event of terrorist attacks, natural disasters, or internal failuresThe study of resilience encompasses the processes, disciplines, and infrastructure that need to be in place to anticipate and prevent major accidents, survive unprecedented disruptions, and maintain systems operation. Architecting Resilient Systems presents a framework for implementation that both public and private organizations can use as a guide to establishing procedures for anticipating, surviving, and recovering from disruptions. Relying on an uncommon level of familiarity with current research and standard ways programs are run in industry, this resource presents principles that may be applied to an extensive number of system types and environments. Coverage includes:A systems approach to treating resilienceincluding both holistic and analytical methods in which systems architecting plays a major roleThe management and technical processes necessary to grasp system resilience, and the interaction between themApproaches that depart from accepted practices in industry and governmentIlluminating case historiesfrom chemical to civil infrastructure to aircraftalong with comparisons that identify similaritiesA discussion of and suggested approaches to dealing with cultural mindsets that can be detrimental to system resilienceEnd-of-chapter problemsMeeting the worldwide demand for an implementation approach to systems resilience, this timely guide can be used as a textbook in university courses or as a reference for practicing engineers, systems architects, technology managers, government agencies, and any business professional whose role is to plan for natural and human-made disruptions.
