Formal Systems Modelling

The following diagram is adapted from "Why Critical Systems Need Help to Evolve" B. Cohen and P. Boxer, Computer Magazine, IEEE, May 2010, p56-63. This is a systems model that divides the system using three cuts. The first Endo-exo divides the systems behaviour from its surroundings, the Cartesian cut then divides the identity of the behaviour from its manifestation and the final Heisenberg cut divides supply from demand/need.
