Definition of System

Michael Social Media, TechTalk

I came across this definition of a System today, so beautifully explained I needed to post it. It can also be too easy to think that only Computers are systems, we need to remember that our processes as groups can as easily be a “System”.

  • System – A group of components that are connected in some way that perform some kind of function.
    • Assembly of component connected together in an organised way.
    • Components are affected by being in the system and are changed if they leave it.
    • The assembly of components does something.
    • The assembly has been identified by a human as being of interest.
