The autonomic complex nervous system of human has ability to manage itself. It adapts changes in its environment and manages by self-healing, self-protection and self-optimization. This gave a robust idea to manage current complex engineering systems and reduce big efforts in maintenance in terms of cost and time of technically skilled human resource. This paper is providing a concept of developing an autonomic manager simultaneously with the developments of its particular system or software, via injecting the autonomic elements into conventional software development life cycle (SDLC) and hence it will become secure SDLC or autonomic SDLC framework.
