Evolutions in Systems Governance Engineering. From Risk to Resilience Paradigm

Adrian V. Gheorghe, Batten Endowed Chair on System of Systems Engineering, Old Dominion University

ABSTRACT:

Increasing complexity of socio – technical systems e.g. critical infrastructures brought into the discussion the emerging topics of governance and engineering systems. From risk governance to resilience governance, as operational concepts, is the result of the work, which took place in the last decade. The presentation aims at addressing the dynamics of systems evolution and associated performance metrics such as their vulnerability and resilience, by use of models extended from e.g. statistical physics, and more.
