Ashgate Publishing, Ltd., Jan 1, 2008 - Transportation - 332 pages
In the resilience engineering approach to safety, failures and successes are seen as two different outcomes of the same underlying process. This collection deals with issues such as measurements and models, the use of procedures to ensure safety, the relation between resilience and robustness, safety management, and the use of risk analysis.
