Recent maritime investigation reports show a gradual increase in a number of both casualties and incidents. Literature indicates that the Bridge Resource Management (BRM) training using behavioural markers of the individual persons did not bring a sensible gain in management or resources in ships bridge. Evidence from other industries, such as aviation supports finding from maritime-related research projects shows that resilience engineering might significantly benefit the maritime industry. According to the resilience concept, coordination between team members occurs with the adaptability and shared vision of the team. Control happens during the interaction between different agents and is situated in the work processes. This article proposed research involving highly realistic simulation scenarios requiring complex decision making and interaction with multiple personnel to test the suitability of the resilience concept for the maritime industry.
