In any area of design, systematic design procedures are necessarily based upon methods for the precise and formal description of the entities being designed. Because complex systems commonly embrace elements from a number of disparate disciplines (e.g., computers, programming systems, servomechanisms, accounting systems), there exists no common terminology or notation adequate for the description of an entire complex system, and hence no adequate basis for systematic “systems design”.
