Systemic Design: Theory, Methods, and Practice (Translational Systems Sciences)
Systemic Design: Theory, Methods, and Practice (Translational Systems
This book presents emerging work in the co-evolving fields of design-led systemics, referred to as systemic design to distinguish it from the engineering and hard science epistemologies of system design or systems engineering. There are significant societal forces and organizational demands impelling the requirement for “better means of change” through integrated design practices of systems and services. Here we call on advanced design to lead programs of strategic scale and higher complexity (e.g., social policy, healthcare, education, urbanization) while adapting systems thinking methods, creatively pushing the boundaries beyond the popular modes of systems dynamics and soft systems. Systemic design is distinguished by its scale, social complexity and integration – it is concerned with higher-order systems that that entail multiple subsystems. By integrating systems thinking and its methods, systemic design brings human-centred design to complex, multi-stakeholder service systems. As designers engage with ever more complex problem areas, it is necessary to draw on a basis other than individual creativity and contemporary “design thinking” methods. Systems theories can co-evolve with a new school of design theory to resolve informed action on today’s highly resilient...

Design Master Absorbit Stem Dye for Fresh Cut Flowers Matte Finish Systemic (Deep Blue)
Design Master Absorbit Stem Dye for Fresh Cut
APPLICATION TIPS: For best results use flowers that have been dry packed and stored in the cooler. Quickness of dye absorption varies with flower type and variety as well as their hydration state. If flowers have already been hydrated set them out of water for about 3-6 hours before dyeing. Use warm (100-110 °F) water to dissolve dye. Mix thoroughly 2-3 teaspoons of Absorbit per quart of warm water : 8-12 teaspoons per gallon. Strip lower foliage and recut stems. Place stems in dye solution for 30-60 minutes. Remove flowers from dye solution at the first sign of color above the calyx. Then rinse dye from stems and recut. Transfer to water with flower food. This step allows the dye remaining in the stem to travel upwards and intensify the blossom color. Do not increase concentration of dye. Formulation includes a wetting agent that is pre-calibrated. Increasing the wetting agent will actually deter the uptake rather than its prescribed enhancement. Roses sometime will have difficulty achieving even coloration. Keep the temperature of the dye mixture at 100-110 °F/40 °C during dyeing period. This can be done by inserting bucket into a water-filled crock pot or on a heat table. If blossom appears spotty after dyeing time, transfer to a bucket of warm water and allow hydratin...
