In this talk, Prof Kazuo Furuta will discuss resilience analysis of a system of systems, in particular, urban critical infrastructure. The resilience of critical infrastructure is important to maintain the safety and security of our society after disruptive events such as the terrorist attack in the United States in 2001 and the Great Eastern Japan Earthquake in 2012.

To make urban critical infrastructure more resilient, we not only have to understand the response of critical infrastructure to a crisis, but also the response of relevant socio-technological systems. Computer simulation is a promising approach for this purpose, but how best to model interdependencies that exist among different subsystems is a problem to be solved.

From this background, a method to model and simulate urban critical infrastructure and the interdependencies among different subsystems will be presented. The simulation model developed consists of the lifeline system, business system, and civilian life system including inter- and intra-dependencies. It has been applied to the resilience analysis of Tokyo’s central area and has proven to be useful for visualizing the resilience of urban socio-technological system in order to support policy makers.

System reliability optimization is a living problem and methodologies have evolved with advancements in mathematics, development of new engineering technology, and changes in management perspectives. There are many different types and forms of system reliability optimization.

In this talk, Prof. David W. Coit considers the development and advancement in the fields of operations research and optimization theory, which have allowed the formalization and continuous improvement of the methods and techniques to address reliability design problems of very complex systems in different technological domains. Technological advances have naturally brought changes in perspectives in response to the needs, interests and priorities of the engineering world. The progression of ideas is organized in a structure of successive eras of analysis methods and problem domains. It started with the first rigorous reliability optimization methods, which involved dynamic programming, to current models that jointly optimize system design hardening and resilience strategies.

During the last decade, the paradigm of resilience has emerged as an attribute of utmost importance when considering the development, upkeep and improvement of systems and infrastructures. Common questions include: How can resilience be designed? Can resilience improve infrastructure performance?

While most engineering research has focused on these questions, the role that communities play in the resilience process and the impact has been mostly overlooked from a quantitative perspective. In this, Dr Jose Emmanuel Ramirez-Marquez will discuss current work done at the Stevens Institute of Technology that begins to addresses this gap. Concepts of the quality of experience (QoE), social cohesion and community engagement will be discussed and exemplified through different real-world applications.

In asset and process performance management, case management and graph database are increasingly used to match known relationships and additional relationships are subsequently discovered using natural language processing (NLP), thereby adding implicitly to knowledge model use cases. Such case knowledge mining are centred around building a class of smart assets that can continuously learn to better detect and predict adversaries and prescribe the right countermeasure. The method can enhance the effective use of assets and prolong the life cycle of the asset and its corresponding eco-system. It also provides opportunities to connect operations to assets to jointly orchestrate efficient operation with optimal resource utilization. To achieve this, assets must be designed with digital twin with its own data collection agents to actively crawl for related data and continuously discover data relation. In this presentation, Mr Brandon Lee will share concepts, possible use cases, and potential collaboration for jumpstarting this initiative.

Since the launch of the One Belt, One Road (OBOR) initiative in 2015, Mainland China has announced its intention to invest in major infrastructure projects to promote trade and co-operation with its trading partners along OBOR. This presentation examines the current level of trading and key projects underway along OBOR so as to provide insights to understand its strategic intent. In particular, a network model is constructed to analyze the impact to China current and future demand for energy under various conditions especially during prolonged periods of supply uncertainties.  Since these key projects are closely connected to the current and proven oil and natural gas reserves locations, the findings propound the OBOR initiative is more than trade and a key motivation is to enhance China’s energy supply resilience amongst other imperatives.
