System (Latin systēma) is a group of related things that work together as a whole. These things can be real or imaginary. Systems can be man-made things like a car engine or natural things like a star system. Systems can also be concepts made by people to organize ideas.

A subsystem is a system that is part of some larger system. For example, in computer networking, a disk subsystem is a part of a computer system.

Definition

  • A system is a group of things that connect and form some kind of coherent whole.

What systems do

Systems are a way to describe a set of items, or people, or things that are related. Most systems describe ways of making them work together, or why they work together already. Some systems are nothing more than a different way of looking at a problem, or thinking about a job being done.

Other systems are more like organizing books on a shelf, so that people can find things more simply, without having to search. These can be systems about how to program computers or manage people.

Example

The Solar System is a great example of a system. The Solar System is made up of the Sun and the 8 planets, as well as the moons of those planets. The related "things," or plants, work together as a whole to form a full planetary system.

Types of systems

There are many kinds of systems. A system can refer to:
