Lopez, Tamara; Sharp, Helen and Wermelinger, Michel (2024). Co-Designing Resilient Socio-Technical Software Systems. In: 2024 International Workshop on Designing Software (Designing ’24), 14-15 Apr 2024, Lisbon, Portugal, ACM.



Socio-technical resilience is increasingly a design goal for software that integrates new kinds of automation. Using an example drawn from air traffic control, this paper explores how a co-design approach can be used alongside resilience en- gineering principles to provide structure and focus to software design activities. The report aligns the steps associated with resilience engineering to the co-design activities of probing, provoking, projecting and prototyping, and suggests methods for engagement with stakeholders that can be used to collect and synthesise data.
