Le nouveau Cherche et trouve de Little Urban, aussi coloré, déjanté et diablement amusant que le premier (A la recherche de la Carotte bleue), en très très grand format pour le plaisir de tout-petits !!! (Et des plus grands, qui trouvera en premier ?)
The methodology proposed in this manual enables the study of two important types of interdependencies between essential infrastructures:
physical and geographical. It involves defining a study area and analyzing the customer-supplier relationships between critical infrastructures and the temporal and spatial consequences of the unavailability of a given resource. These consequences are presented as curves, which depict the propagation of domino effects over time in the study area. The methodology also permits
an analysis of how critical infrastructures
will fail and enables the identification
of infrastructures vulnerable to these failures. Overlaying these layers of information
allows areas that are most sensitive
to geographical interdependencies to be identified and mitigation measures to be implemented.
Benoît Robert, Eng., Ph. D., is an engineer and Professor in the Department
of Mathematics and Industrial Engineering
at the École Polytechnique de Montréal.
Dr. Robert is also Director of the Centre risque & performance and a renowned specialist
in risk management. He is considered a pioneer in the assessment of domino effects in Canada.
Luciano Morabito, Eng., M. Eng., is an engineer and research associate at the École Polytechnique de Montréal. He has been working since 2004 on the development of a methodology for assessing interdependencies
among critical infrastructures and is responsible for developing tools for modeling
and managing these interdependencies.
