‎The Sociotechnical Metabolic rate of Resilience on Apple Books


Writer Description

This book views the idea of resilience inside a global society where dealing with the issue and lengthy term impact of crisis and disaster challenges the capability of communities to recover in case of severe disruption. Catastrophic occasions like the 9.11 terrorist attack, the Fukushima nuclear disaster, and also the volcano eruption in Central Java entailed massive devastation on physical infrastructures, and caused significant social and economic damage. This book views the way the modern sociotechnological system facilitating human activity defines how societies survive and whether an emergency is going to be short-resided or prolonged. Applying the idea of sociotechnical resilience, this book carefully examines a variety of occasions The United States, Asia, Australia,and Europe. By presenting the successes and failures of sociotechnical resilience, it provides important insights and practical training to construct better and comprehensive understandings of resilience inside a real-world setting, considerably adding to study regarding disaster resilience.

Safety Analysis for Resilient Complex Socio-Technical Systems with an Extended Functional Resonance Analysis Method


The safety of complex Socio-Technical Systems highly depends on the non-linear interaction of variabilities between task performances in human, machines and working environments and proper management of those is essential to ensure the safety. However, the practical means to ensure the safety of those systems have not been established yet, and this is mainly due to the gap existing between the theory and the reality as well as to the lack of means for visualizing the potential risks. In this paper, we propose an extended method of FRAM: Functional Resonance Analysis Method and construct a simulator that enables to visualize the potential risks. Then, an example of interactive analysis using the simulator is presented, which enables us to visualize the degrees of resilience of an existing work procedure in operation in facing with potential variabilities. In the end, how to utilize the proposed method for the establishment of the resilient systems from the point of view of the design of operation procedures is presented.
