building subsystem

1. A complete group of elements or set of parts that form and function as a unit within a finished building.
2. An assemblage of components that perform a specific function in a building, e.g., an air-conditioning system consisting of its components such as a fan, ductwork, air diffusers, and controls.

subsystem

A unit or device that is part of a larger system. For example, a disk subsystem is a part of a computer system. A bus is a part of the computer. A subsystem usually refers to hardware, but it may be used to describe software. However, "module," "subroutine" and "component" are more typically used to describe parts of software.

Following apparent step is an increase of reliability of all subsystems. The question is, though, what is the minimal level of the reliability increase of partial elements to ensure required reliability of technical system in time t on the level Rs(t) = 0.97.

When dealing with complex systems with numerous linked and interdependent subsystems, a schedule is a useful and (arguably) critical management device.
Identify and name the exact number of critical subsystems that are assumed to occur empirically at each of the eight levels.
It is generally recognized that a tire cord calender is in reality a complex system, or perhaps more accurately, a "super system"--comprised of several complex subsystems. We can readily intuit that the success of the super system is dependent on the successful functioning of the various subsystems and the individual elements that comprise those subsystems.
