Submitted Shapes - Living systems theory
Submitted by Ian Smith
Assigned to Alan Horkan
This is a series of shapes based on Living Systems Theory by James G Miller. It is a comprehensive set of subsystems that can document any living or nonliving system. Due to the property of "shred-out" each subsystem can then be analyzed in the same way, and utilize the same subsystems.
It is possible to document systems like web servers in LST, but the majority of this documentation will be as useful as the amount of detail included. Storing variables in each shape is the next intended feature.
If Dia could allow for linking of documents in the SVG export per the standard that would be excellent! Then the connection between systems and shred out can be appropriately documented.
The images were created by Ian Smith and Rachelle Benoit. Copyright is retained, and unlimited redistribution in conjunction with Dia and its exports is granted. (Anywhere Dia goes, the images are welcome. If you wish to include these images in a different application, please contact scrifoundation.org.)
