Technology systems that necessary to form social infrastructures tend to be increasingly complex. In the development of such a socio-technical system, no longer, single discipline cannot cover the area but multidisciplinary systems thinking can do that. In particular, it is highly required to provide human- and eco-friendly systems by appropriate methods for the future society. Our project which belongs to the Graduate School of System Design and Management will advance the research from the viewpoint of design and management of control systems.
