Decomposition is one of the fundamental principles of the systems approach to the study of complex objects. Decomposition is performed in order to replace the task of solving a complex problem of system analysis or design by the successive solution of simpler problems. It is also of practical importance to know whether or not it is possible to have a set of inputs controls a set of outputs independently in complex systems.
