Systems are a broad topic in the world of engineering, but understanding what one is might be simpler than you think.  An example would be your car engine: the engine, transmission. And other parts interact with each other to create motion through combustion. This definition applies to many different systems such as computers, power plants, and even people!

A system can be defined as a set of interacting parts that work together to achieve some goal. An example would be your car engine: the engine, transmission, and other parts interact with each other to create motion through combustion. This definition applies to many different systems such as computers, power plants, and even people! The interaction between two or more things is called an ‘interaction’.

A system has interactions when it uses objects from outside itself in order for its own functions to operate successfully; these are known as input objects. So if you have a bicycle chain on which sparks fly because one of its links breaks then this is interaction within the bike. The breaking link needs help from another object (a spark).
