Summary expansion
"The aim of this book is to provide an introduction to resilience engineering of systems, covering both the theoretical and practical aspects. It is written for people who, as part of their work, are responsible for system safety on managerial or operational levels alike. Resilience Engineering will be directly relevant to professionals such as safety managers and engineers (line and maintenance), security experts, risk and safety consultants, human factors professionals and accident investigators."--BOOK JACKET.

Prologue: resilience engineering concepts -- Part I. Emergence -- 1. Resilience: the challenge of the unstable -- Systems are ever-changing -- 2. Essential characteristics of resilience -- 3. Defining resilience -- Nature of changes in systems -- 4. Complexity, emergence, resilience ... -- 5. A typology of resilience situations -- Resilient systems -- 6. Incidents: markers of resilience or brittleness? -- 7. Resilience engineering: chronicling the emergence of confused consensus -- Part II. Cases and processes -- 8. Engineering resilience into safety-critical systems -- 9. Is resilience really necessary?: the case of railways -- Systems are never perfect -- 10. Structure for management of weak and diffuse signals -- 11. Organizational resilience and industrial risk -- An evil chain mechanism leading to failures -- 12. Safety management in airlines -- 13. Taking things in one's own stride: cognitive features of two resilient performances -- 14. Erosion of managerial resilience: from VASA to NASA -- 15. Learning how to create resilience in business systems -- 16. Optimum system safety and optimum system resilience: agnostic or antagonistic concepts? -- Part III. Challenges for a practice of resilience engineering -- 17. Properties of resilient organizations: an initial view -- Remedies -- 18.
