Reliability and Risk

This chapter expands the discussion of how time and scale interact with risk when managing infrastructures for reliability. The whole cycle of infrastructure operations ranges from normal to disrupted, restored, failed, recovered, and new normal. Risks vary by the stage of the cycle, and each stage is managed for reliability differently. Thus, a disruption in one infrastructure of an ICIS requires not only zooming down to determine root causes but also zooming up to determine its impact on the entire infrastructure as a system and zooming across to determine how these impacts affect infrastructures interconnected with it. Two examples-the 2010 San Bruno gas explosion and the major nexus of infrastructure on an island in the Delta-illustrate how risk analysis is to be undertaken in the ICIS setting.

Keywords:   Whole cycle of operations, critical infrastructures, interconnected critical infrastructure systems, risk assessment and management, time and scale in reliability management
