Much has been written about the development of a general systems theory for application to civil problems, but very little documentation exists in the sense of case studies of large-scale programs implemented using the systems approach. The Model Urban Neighborhood Demonstration Program, operating in an inner-city poverty neighborhood in Baltimore, offers some lessons in this regard. With the present state of the art, the techniques of systems analysis are most effective at the subsystem level, and the necessary funding and development time should be afforded to extend their usefulness in the civil order. Existing aerospace companies provide an operating institutional base, with extenasive resources, that can be beneficially translated to solving problems in the public order.
