Definition: set of interrelated elements considered in a defined context as a whole and separated from their environment

NOTE 1 – A system is generally defined with the view of achieving a given objective, e.g. by performing a definite function.

NOTE 2 – Elements of a system can be natural or man-made material objects, as well as modes of thinking and the results thereof (e.g. forms of organisation, mathematical methods, programming languages).

NOTE 3 – The system is considered to be separated from the environment and the other external systems by an imaginary surface, which cuts the links between them and the system.

NOTE 4 – The term "system" should be qualified when it is not clear from the context to what it refers, e.g. control system, colorimetric system, system of units, transmission system.
