Systemic Design for Social Complexity
Relating Systems Thinking and Design (RSD5) Symposium
OCAD University Toronto, Canada October 13-15, 2016
SOD
Systems Oriented Design (SOD) is a dialect in the emerging field of Systemic Design.
It is maybe the most designerly and practice oriented approach.
The red blurry dot in the diagram below shows SOD being off center, closer to design
and closer to practice.
(Birger Sevaldson 2013)
There are many resources on
www.systemsorienteddesign.net
The Library of Systemic Relations
and other concepts, tools and
approaches are found there.
(Birger Sevaldson 2006- )
PRAXIOLOGY
Cross, N. (1999). Design Research: A Disciplined Conversation. Design Issues, 15(2), 5–10.
Praxiology in the sense I use it has its main references in practice.
Externalised practice knowledge.
Combination of theories of practice, experience, skills, tacit and explicit.
The expressed competence how to go about things in the world.
Phronesis: Practical wisdom. The ability and intellect to act in the world.
Praxiology example
(Rafael Maranon)
The Dynamics of Circular Migration in Southern Europe: An Example of Social Innovation -
http://www.rafamara.com/blog/the-dynamics-of-circular-migration-in-southern-europe-an-example-of-social-
innovation/ (
Comparing the conceptions of
relations from a traditional
system dynamics model with
a praxiology approach to
relations.
Here an example of a systems
dynamics model.
The relations are quantifiable.
There is a limited and
formalized way of describing
the relations.
The basic model is the
concept of positive and
negative relations.
http://www.systemsorienteddesign.net/index.php/giga-mapping/types-of-systemic-relations
In contrast to the Systems Dynamics and
other traditional systems models, the
Library of Systemic Relations is mapping
out the many different types of relations
we could imagine or conceptualized,
without considerations if they would fit
into one or the other systems model.
These include quantitative and qualitative
relations. The library also includes
relations that are not easily depicted
graphically with nodes and connectors.
The next image shows an example of using
the Library. This example also
demonstrates the challenges we meet
when looking deeper into the nature of
the connectors.
Note: The black connectors are
unclassified.

  • 7. (Young Eun Choi, Birger Sevaldson, 2013)
  • 8. (Birger Sevaldson 2001- 2013) One of the most common misconception is that there is only one relation between two nodes. Normally we can identify several connections between two nodes. As designers we can exploit graphics to distinguish relations and to describe different features of the relations. Line weight can indicate importance. Dashed lines could indicate relations that are not always active. A gradient could indicate unequal importance of a relation. (Your relation to your bank might be important to you but hardly makes a difference for the bank) Also Boundary conditions could be treated graphically to indicate resistance and other qualitative features of the nodes
  • 9. (Birger Sevaldson 2016) The “Grandmother Diagram” Obviously a mutual relation
  • 10. But is it balanced?
  • 14. Economic Relation: Grandmother helps grandson with his studies
  • 15. Grandson helps grandma and brings flowers
  • 16. Relations are interconnected and operate in networks of relations. They can reinforce or weaken each other.
  • 17. Can we quantify this? Some things we can count directly. Count the amount of money The frequency of visits etc. Other things can be measured in various ways. Questionnaires regarding emotions etc. Ethnographic studies etc. But these only indirectly indicate the state and content of the relations them selves.
  • 18. No singular type of relation (or systemic model) is sufficient to explain the interplay between things in the world Karin Backlund, Maxwell Kevin Otieno, Evelina Peterson, 2015
  • 19. Some types of relations Structural relations A C D B E F Root node Non-terminal node Terminal node Branches A A A A D D D D Nodes, Objects Actors Relations, Directional actions (Birger Sevaldson 2016) Hierarchical Structure (Closed and ordered structure) Non-hierarchical structure (Open and “messy” structure)
  • 20. Semantic Relations (Public Domain) A Semantic Network Semantic networks Categorical relations Associative relations Representational relations
  • 21. Social relations • Individual social relations (Family, friends) • Professional relations (Workplace, profession) • Institutionalized social relations, (Sharing religion, citizen of a nation) • Political relations (Sharing or not sharing political beliefs) • Action relations (Social relations emerging form common activities)
  • 22. Hard relations Causal (cause- effect) (Public domain) A root cause analyses of the “Herald of Free Enterprise” accident
  • 23. Feedback loops ROADS CARS TRAFIC JAM PUBLIC OPINION POLITICS + + + + + (Birger Sevaldson 2016) A positive feedback loop will spin out of control.
  • 24. SYSTEMIC RELATIONS THAT RESIST THE MODEL OF NODES AND CONNECTORS (Photo by CEphoto, Uwe Aranas)(GNU License) Proximity is not a connection in its self. But it might trigger connections. No direct connection Proximity: A school and a petrol station situated close to each other will influence each other. Observation from a Oslo primary school show how the petrol station is used by students in their free quarters. The rhythm of the school influences the rhythm of the petrol station. (Images are not from the observed location, because in the meantime the petrol station is gone)
  • 25. (Photo by CEphoto, Uwe Aranas)(GNU License) Rythm Attractor Economic Conflict Synergi Particular emergent relations that are triggered by proximity.
  • 26. Magnetic Field (Public domain) Spatial distributions (intensity) is in a sense one object itself. It is not easely described in a network of nodes and connectors, though singular links might be abstracted. The abstraction into nodes and connectors is insufficient to capture the dynamic interplay that might take place in a field condition. Fields: E.g. interactions are getting so intertwined and entangled as well as ubiquitous that they operate more as fields rather than singular interaction.
