Abstract

The definitions of an “integrated system” and an “interfaced system” are unclear. Consequently, purchasers and developers of systems are often unable to judge the degree to which a system is integrated. This paper presents definitions of integrated systems and interfaced systems, describes the differences between the two, and reviews resulting conclusions.
