Self-adaptation techniques are applied to technical systems in order to achieve goals such as increasing the robustness or improving the performance. Designing and developing self-adaptive systems differs fundamentally from traditional processes, which resulted in specific meta design processes, e.g., driven by the Organic Computing (OC) initiative. However, these processes are typically not considering robustness or resilience explicitly by defining resilience levels that are achieved by certain adaptation mechanisms building on-top of each other. In this position paper, we present a concept of how the field of resilience engineering can be integrated into the OC meta design process in order to come up with such an explicit consideration.
