Closed Loop System
A system that contains feedback. the feedback may come in a variety of forms including ratings, materials for reuse or information
Individual parts of the system
Engineering Design Journal
A book, notebook or binder that contains documentation of the process of attempting to solve a problem through technology is an engineering design journal. These journal generally contain notes, sketches, and comments to help the designer improve the solution to the problem.
Information given about the output of the system
An input is something that goes into a system, a resource such as time, money, communication, etc.
Open Loop System
