This paper defines the terms system, system approach, and systems analysis, and describes a variety of systems in defense and non-defense areas. In education, the primary focus of systems analysis is on detailed description of operations, understanding the functional interactions of system components, and the flow of information for decision-making within the system. General principles involved in systems analysis are described and some outcomes of such analysis are provided. Implications of systems analysis for more effective educational decision-making are also discussed. Author
