After the industrial revolution, artefactsgrew in number and complexitySystems were small and relatively simple. Work was mainly manual. Artefacts were either made by the user, tailored to the user, or very generic. The user was either known, or user characteristics did not matter much. Systems became larger and more complex. Work became mainly mechanised. Artefacts were mass produced and became highly speed. User characteristics became important for effectiveness, but the user was anonymous hence unknown. 12Managing the Hospital of the FutureThe industrial revolution removed the natural upper limits for amplification (limitations of wind, water, animals.) The steam engine (and later the fractional horsepower motor) provided a regular and dynamic force by that could power almost any process — but which also needed to be controlled....
