The International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis is preparing a Handbook of Systems Analysis, which will appear in three volumes:
Volume 1: Overview is aimed at a widely varied audience of producers and users of systems analysis studies.
Volume 2: Methods is aimed at systems analysts and other members of systems analysis teams who need basic knowledge of methods in which they are not expert; this volume contains introductory overviews of such methods.
Volume 3: Cases contains descriptions of actual systems analyses that illustrate the diversity of the contexts and methods of systems analysis.
Drafts of the material for Volume 1 are being widely circulated for comment and suggested improvement. This Working Paper is the current draft of Chapter 7. Correspondence is invited.
Volume 1 will consist of the following ten chapters:
1. The context, nature, and use of systems analysis
2. The genesis of applied systems analysis;
3. Examples of applied systems analysis
4. The methods of applied systems analysis: An introduction and overview
5. Formulating problems for systems analysis
6. Objectives, constraints, and alternatives
7. Predicting the consequences: Models and modeling
8. Guidance for decision
10. The practice of applied systems analysis
To these ten chapters will be added a glossary of systems analysis terms and a bibliography of basic works in the field.
