System - Types of Systems

Types of Systems

Systems are classified in different ways:-

  1. Physical or Abstract systems.
  2. Open or Closed systems.
  3. 'Man-made' Information systems.
  4. Formal Information systems.
  5. Informal Information systems.
  6. Computer Based Information systems.
  7. Real Time System.


Physical systems are tangible entities that may be static or dynamic in operation.

An open system has many interfaces with its environment. i.e. system that interacts freely with its environment, taking input and returning output. It permits interaction across its boundary; it receives inputs from and delivers outputs to the outside. A closed system does not interact with the environment; changes in the environment and adaptability are not issues for closed system.

Famous quotes containing the words types of, systems and/or types:

    The wider the range of possibilities we offer children, the more intense will be their motivations and the richer their experiences. We must widen the range of topics and goals, the types of situations we offer and their degree of structure, the kinds and combinations of resources and materials, and the possible interactions with things, peers, and adults.
    Loris Malaguzzi (1920–1994)

    In all systems of theology the devil figures as a male person.... Yes, it is women who keep the church going.
