Uniquely reflects an engineering view to social systems in a wide variety of contexts of application

Social Systems Engineering: The Design of Complexity brings together a wide variety of application approaches to social systems from an engineering viewpoint. The book defines a social system as any complex system formed by human beings. Focus is given to the importance of systems intervention design for specific and singular settings, the possibilities of engineering thinking and methods, the use of computational models in particular contexts, and the development of portfolios of solutions. Furthermore, this book considers both technical, human and social perspectives, which are crucial to solving complex problems.

Social Systems Engineering: The Design of Complexity provides modelling examples to explore the design aspect of social systems. Various applications are explored in a variety of areas, such as urban systems, health care systems, socioeconomic systems, and environmental systems. It covers important topics such as organizational design, modelling and intervention in socioeconomic systems, participatory and/or communitybased modelling, application of systems engineering tools to social problems, applications of computational behavioral modeling, computational modelling and management of complexity, and more.

Highlights an engineering view to social systems (as opposed to a scientific view) that stresses the importance of systems intervention design for specific and singular settings
Divulges works where the design, redesign, and transformation of social systems constitute the main aim, and where joint considerations of both technical and social perspectives are deemed important in solving social problems
Features an array of applied cases that illustrate the application of social systems engineering in different domains
Social Systems Engineering: The Design of Complexity is an excellent text for academics and graduate students in engineering and social science specifically, economists, political scientists, anthropologists, and management scientists with an interest in finding systematic ways to intervene and improve social systems.
