A system has five primary components:
- Input (machines, manpower, raw materials, money, time, and so on).
- Processes (policies, procedures, and operations that convert data into information).
- Output (information in the right format, conveyed at the right time and place to the right person).
- Feedback (data about the performance of the system).
- Control (processing the feedback and taking the necessary action).
