Resilience beyond Formal Structures: A Network Perspective towards the Challenges of an Aging Workforce in the Oil and Gas Industry

Fabio Bento, Luciano Garotti
2019 Journal of Open Innovation: Technology, Market and Complexity  
In this conceptual article, we look at the knowledge-loss crisis from the perspective of network resilience in complex systems.  ...  However, such common managerial responses show important limitations in terms of grasping tacit and network-based dimensions of knowledge in complex oil production operations.  ...  In the second part, we present an alternative perspective permeated by the concept of resilience in complex adaptive systems.  ...

Engineering Resilient Complex Systems: The Necessary Shift Toward Complexity Science

Giuliano Punzo, Anurag Tewari, Eugene Butans, Massimiliano Vasile, Alan Purvis, Martin Mayfield, Liz Varga
2020 IEEE Systems Journal  
This position article addresses resilience in complex engineering and engineered systems (CES). It offers a synthesis of academic thinking with an empirical analysis of the challenge.  ...  Extending the latest understanding of resilience, we propose a circular framework where features of CES are related to a resilience event and complexity science explains the importance of interconnections  ...  ACKNOWLEDGMENT The authors would like to acknowledge the continuous idea exchange with academics and practitioners in the field of CES.  ...
