3-2-1 analyzing systems: Deconstruction

The skill we use when we want to analyze any system is called "Deconstruction":
Taking a complex system and break it down to its simpler systems, studying them as if they stand alone

-          Any system consists of smaller simpler systems that are connected to each other
-          You take the small, easy-to-understand part and:
-          Examine it
-          Know its inflows and outflows
-          Know the connection between it and other parts
-          Know its order in the process
-          Whether it is a slack, constraint or not … etc.

You keep doing that with any system you want to analyze till you are finished with analyzing all its parts, and then you make a diagram/ flowchart of the system to get a whole eagle-eye look at it
