A system is a structured hierarchy of subsystems and components. It has three fundamental properties:
- Boundaries, which include not just an interface but also hand-off between the entities it binds
- Structure, which is a collection of interrelated and/or interdependent parts that often includes a graded hierarchy, and
- Synergy, which implies that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts and that the system possesses emergent properties that are not divisible to its subsystems.
