ICT systems are becoming an important infrastructure indispensable for business operations in various industries. While the requirements are becoming more diverse and complex, stable service provision is required. As a result, the burden on operations is increasing, and there are growing expectations for automation technology to solve this problem. This study investigates techniques to significantly reduce the burden on operators by automating the construction and maintenance of systems that satisfy Intent, a concise description of users' requirements. However, even using the results of previous research, it has been difficult to automate operations with consideration for the stability of service provision. Therefore, this paper describes an automated method based on intent for detecting failures that occur in the target system and an automated design method for fault-tolerant systems. First, we describe the basic concept, present the results of thought experiments, and discuss its effectiveness.
