Systems-Thinking. Systems thinking is valuable because it can help people design smart, enduring solutions to problems. Systems thinking gives people a more accurate picture of reality so that they can work within a system’s natural forces to achieve the results they desire.

Systems-Thinking

Systems thinking is valuable because it can help people design smart, enduring solutions to problems.

Systems thinking gives people a more accurate picture of reality so that they can work within a system’s natural forces to achieve the results they desire.

Technological systems ipof

  • Technological systems include inputs, processes, output, and at times, feedback.

  • The input consists of the resources that flow into the system.

  • The process is the systematic sequence of actions that combines resources to produce an output—encoding, reproducing, designing, or propagating, for example.

  • The at times, feedback. output is the end result, which can have either a positive or negative impact.

  • Feedback is information used to monitor or control a system.

Open loop system vs closed loop

  • An open-loop system has no feedback path and requires human intervention, while a closed-loop system uses feedback.

  • An example of an open-loop system is a microwave oven that requires a person to determine if the food has been heated to the required temperature.

  • An example of a closed-loop system is the heating system in a home, which has a thermostat to provide feedback when the system needs to be turned on and off.

Resources

  • Selecting resources involves trade-offs between competing values, such as availability, cost desirability, and waste.

  • Technological development involves decisions about which resources can and should be used.

  • For example, some homes are very energy efficient (Inputs), while others consume large amounts of energy.
