Comment

Alternative definition that has been removed: Set of elements (at least sensor, controller, and actuator) in relation with each other according to design. An element of a system can be another system at the same time. Then, it is called subsystem which can be a controlling or controlled system or which can contain hardware, software and manual operations (ISO TC 22/SC 3 N xxx/BL10).
