When designing a very simple system, one could imagine doing the job by themselves, with very little need to consult a larger group, or enlist the services of other engineers.  A complex system may be made up of many simpler systems, and designing this System of Systems will require more thought and coordination.  ATI offers a course which will guide you through the process of SoS Engineering.
