See our full selection of articles on complex engineered systems, topics range from Socio-Technical systems to multimodal transport networks to technology convergence
Complex engineered systems are large networks of technologies composed of many diverse subsystems, densely interacting in a nonlinear fashion to create a multi-tiered network system that evolves over time
Technology Systems A Bushman hunter in the Kalahari, Namibia uses a stick to probe a termite mound. The stick is one of the earliest forms of technology also used by other creatures such as chimpanzees Technology is often defined as the use of scientific knowledge to solve problems.1 In such a way technology [...]
