Title: IISc MG 286 Project Management Systems Approach


1
PROFICIENCE PMC Course
  • Module 2
  • The Systems Approach

2
Some Basic Concepts/ Definitions
  • What is system?
  • It is a set of parts (components), which are
    coordinated to accomplish (achieve) a set of
    goals (objectives).
  • What is the systems approach?
  • It is a wholistic approach to problem solving
    that involves formal consideration of
  • Total system objectives Performance measures
  • System environment Fixed constraints
  • System resources Inputs
  • System components Activities, goals,
    performance
  • System management Component interactions

3
Systems Approach (Contd.)
  • Total system objectives (performance measures of
    the whole system).
  • System environment (fixed constraints).
  • System resources (inputs).
  • System components (their activities, goals, and
    performance measures), and
  • System management (control).

4
A General Systems Model
  • Inputs can be purposeful or environmental . Again
    , purposeful inputs can be controllable or
    uncontrollable .
  • Outputs can be desired or undesired outputs.
  • Design parameters are features or attributes of
    the system that will affect system behavior .

5
A General Systems Model
  • Constraints establish quantitative limits on each
    input , output , and design parameter .
  • Criteria for evaluation are used to establish
    relative goodness amongst several alternative
    designs or solutions .
  • Functional representation can be as follow Y( t)
    f X (t) , E (t) where t is any independent
    variable (time).

6
Areas of Systems Studies
1. System design Given X(t), Y(t), E(t)
Determine f   2. System Analysis Given X(t), f,
E(t) Determine Y(t)   3. System Control Given f,
Y(t), E(t) Determine X(t)
7
Types of Systems
  • Discrete event Vs Continuous flow
  • Discrete time (difference equation) Vs Continuous
    time (differential equation)
  • Deterministic Vs Stochastic
  • Fixed or static Vs Time variant or dynamic
  • Linear Vs Non-linear
  • X1(t)-y1(t) X2(t)-y2(t)
  • Then, aX1(t)bX2(t)---aY1(t)bY2(t)

A Project as a System The life cycle concept 
1) A project has sub-projects/work packages like
a system has sub-systems/components 2) The
sub-projects/sub-systems are inter-linked/inter-re
lated 3) We focus on overall project/system
objectives 4) Project identification is similar
to system boundary demarcation 5) Project
resources are like system inputs 6) Like the
system life cycle, a project also has a life
cycle. Major difference A system generally
implies an infinite lifetime (perhaps with
upgrading),while a project is purely temporary.
