In science:

Repairing redundancy is of paramount importance for the design and implementation of distributed storage systems. A self-healing mechanism is usually composed of three phases.
Repairing Multiple Failures with Coordinated and Adaptive Regenerating Codes
We focus on self-healing systems (i.e., systems that automatically repair themselves upon failure).
Repairing Multiple Failures with Coordinated and Adaptive Regenerating Codes
Distributed storage systems are required to be self-healing so as to ensure that the system does not gradually lose its ability to recover the initial file.
Repairing Multiple Failures with Coordinated and Adaptive Regenerating Codes
