29 Technological Systems Grade 8th 29 Unit Example Understanding the Universal Systems Model What is a System? A group of interrelated parts or elements that function together to accomplish a goal.

30 Technological Systems Grade 8th 30 Unit Example Understanding the Universal Systems Model What is an Open-loop System? A control system that has no means for comparing the output with the input for control purposes. Control of open-loop systems often requires human intervention.

31 Technological Systems Grade 8th 31 Unit Example Understanding the Universal Systems Model What is a Closed-loop System? A system that uses feedback from the output to control the input.

32 Technological Systems Grade 8th 32 Unit Example Understanding the Universal Systems Model 7 Technological Resources People Information Materials Tools & Machines Energy Time Capital

33 Technological Systems Grade 8th 33 Something that is put into a system in order to achieve a result. The input is often a combination of the 7 resources of technology. A sequence of actions that combine resources to produce an output. The Universal Systems Model Input ProcessOutput Feedback The results of the operation of any system. If the system is working properly the output will be the desired product or results. Used to monitor how a system is working. It is only used in a closed loop system. An open loop system does not have feedback.. Apply the Universal Systems Model to a simple system. Unit Example Understanding the Universal Systems Model
