Holistic Trinity of Services Sciences: Management, Social, and Engineering Sciences
Services industries comprise about 75% of the economy of developed nations. To design and operate services systems for today and tomorrow, we need to educate a new type of engineer who focuses not on manufacturing but on services. Such an engineer must be able to integrate 3 sciences-management, social and engineering — into her analysis of services systems. Within the context of a new research center at MIT — CESF (Center for Engineering Systems Fundamentals) — we show how newly emerging services systems require such a 3-way holistic analysis. We deliberately select some non-standard services, as many business services such as supply chains have been studied extensively.
