Characteristics of a system are;

  • Holistic thinking: Components may be simple but the combination gives a complex whole whose overall goals are more sophisticated.
  • Subsystems: systems are made up of different components
  • Boundary and environment: each system has space within which the components operate.
  • Purpose: each system performs a specific task.
  • Process: Process data from one state to another
  • System entropy: systems decay naturally over time
  • Inputs and outputs: systems communicate with their environments y receiving inputs and giving outputs.
  • Open and closed systems: open systems adapt to changes in the environment.
  • Control: control is achieved through feedback and adjusts control signals ensuring that outputs meet set expectations
