The recent extreme weather events in UK, Europe and around the world have raised issues about the organization and management of critical infrastructure subjected to any crisis. Lack of information on infrastructure management when subject to these disastrous events, along with embedded uncertainties of these disastrous events, will lead to disruptions to all connected critical infrastructure. Recently there has been a change in ideology where instead of relying on the ability to reduce risks induced by disastrous events, it is economically desirable to manage infrastructure network based on their resilience and their capacity in coping with these disruptions. This paper summarizes the work that is being implemented in developing a resilience-informed decision making system. Resilience-informed management system will provide means of quantifying the level of system bounce-back ability to all hazard scenarios in addition to their vulnerability. This study will eventually provide means of optimizing design and investment strategies for critical infrastructure owners and managers.
