Prev: Fundamental Limits Chapter 15 - Architecture and System Design Next: Bibliography

In this chapter we place the relatively simple feedback loops that have been the focus of the previous chapters in the context of overall system design. We outline a typical design process and discuss the role of architecture and how it can be approached from top-down and bottom-up perspectives. Interaction and adaptation are then reviewed and the chapter ends with a brief overview of control design in some major industrial fields.
