Systems Engineering (1)

During the years 2010 until now, work on the Systems Processes Theory (SPT) has proceeded with the help of several systems engineers who are working together under the auspices of a joint memo of agreement and cooperation between INCOSE (the … Continue reading

Research on Dualities (2)

Dualities exist everywhere. Our argument is that they appear so widely because they are important to systems dynamics. In the System of Systems Processes Theory we have proposed a neologism for duality. We call this isomorphic phenomenon ……. “counterparity”……. to … Continue reading

Artificial Systems Research

Artificial Systems Research refers to our efforts to place the SoSPT theory in virtual reality much like researchers on Artificial Life placed virtual biosystems in virtual reality to explore genetics and evolution. This would enable adding or subtracting different sets … Continue reading

SP3T Rationale – Overview

What does this theory of systems do that others do not do? If one compares the more than 50 extant attempts at systems theory or general theories of systems, one sees that: SP3T focuses on isomorphies, and mostly isomorphies (the original … Continue reading

Research Teams

Here is a list of collaborators on all aspects of the Systems Processes Theory (SPT). At the recommendation of some of these workers we also call the theory SP3T, for “Systems Processes, Patterns, and Pathologies Theory.” The listings below include … Continue reading

The New Revised Systems Processes List

Luke Friendshuh and I have been skyping weekly on systems processes. We went through the list of 100 systems process and reduced the list to 55 processes. Some of what I had listed as processes were actually identifying features and characteristics … Continue reading
