The components of a system may be quite diverse, consisting of persons, organizations, procedures, software, equipment, end 'or facilities. The purpose of a system may be as humble as distributing electrical power within a spacecraft or as grand as exploring the surface of Mars. A Hierarchical System Terminology The following hierarchical sequence of terms for suc cessively finer resolution was adopted by the NASA wide Systems Engineering Working Group (SEWG) and its successor, the Systems Engineering Process Improvement Task (SEPIT) team: System Segment Element Subsystem Assembly Subassembly Part...
