THE LOGIC OF AN APPROACH TO THE ANALYSIS OF COMPLEX SYSTEMS

DENTIFIERS Mathemtical models, Weapons systems. The analysis of complex man-machine systems is discussed. This approach assumes that systems can be divided into elements and their direct relations, where the elements include the components and the processes of the system, as well as the factors external to the system which determine it. The elements and direct relations are used to construct a represenative network of the system. The system is then analyzed by means of one or more mathematical models. These models are evaluated against the network for their completeness in representing the system. Elements and direct relations which were not modeled or were only inadequately modeled are then described by less formal means. In the final step, the mathematical models and the additional descriptions are judgmentally integrated by the analyst. Author
