Event description

Description

Do engineering standards support or undermine the creation of resilient systems?

An ENCORE Network+ Workshop hosted by the International Centre for Infrastructure Futures at the University of Bristol’s Systems Centre


Engineering standards and design codes reflect best practice to provide frameworks that manage complexity and reduce variability so that compliance results in safe, predictably tolerable outcomes.

However, standardisation and the prevention of variability can constrain the conditionsrequired for sustainable and resilient systems to meet changingsocio-environmental needs, as wellas their resistance and recovery from un-anticipated hazards.

This workshop will implement simple toolsbased on Systems Theory to explore the complex relationships between design codes, the behaviours they create in those that follow them, and the products of their design. It will seek to investigate how standards can constrain the capabilities that contribute to a system’s resilience and the proactive ways in which they can support those same capabilities.

Lunch will be provided.
