Towards a formal framework for reasoning about the resilience of dynamic interactive systems.
(pp. pp. 109-110).
It is well known that systems built with resilient components are not necessarily resilient systems. Nevertheless, when studying the resilience of work systems characterised by continuous inter-operations among humans and devices, analysts generally concentrate only on localised interactions among humans and devices. Consequently they fail to capture the distributed nature of the mechanisms that guide interactions in dynamic interactive systems. In this paper, as a result of work on the resilience of medical systems with respect to human error, we propose a framework for reasoning about the resilience of complex dynamic interactive systems. To do this we exploit concepts from three different areas: the automated synthesis of resilient systems, formal methods for user-centred design, and distributed cognition. Copyright © 2011 ACM.
