The concept of resilience has emerged from various domains to address how systems, people and economies can handle uncertainty. Indeed, there is recognition that organisations also need to become more resilient in order to not just survive hardship, but also thrive and prosper. For engineering infrastructure systems, such as telecommunications networks, this is ever more vital due to the characteristically long life cycles leading to large uncertainties and due to the significant investments involved. However, exactly how such systems may be endowed with resilience from an engineering design perspective is less clear.

This talk thus discusses recent PhD work in the synthesis of a novel support method where Bayesian Networks are used for resilience analysis and the design properties that may be useful for resilience. This was applied to two case studies: the first built upon existing work based on a Waste-to-Energy system in Singapore to verify the new method while the second applied the support method with BT to gauge reception of this approach in industry.
