Since its inception, the IEEE Systems, Man, and Cybernetics Society has had an increasing influence on the field of large scale systems, particularly as these relate to areas of human interaction. The purpose of this paper is to provide an overview of some of the major areas of activity by SMC in large scale systems. The work of others has been taken liberally and full credit is due the many excellent contributors. The specific areas covered are Input-Output Models (from Chen ), Public System Methodology, Interpretive Structural Modeling (from Warfield  and Lendaris ), Transportation (from ), and Man-Machine Systems (from Green-stein and Rouse ).
