What is this wiki about? How is it possible to understand such complex systems? Fortunately there is already an exciting new field called Complex Adaptive Systems. The book "Complex Adaptive Systems" by John Miller and Scott Page describes the field. From the cover (quote): This first clear, comprehensive and accessible account of complex adaptive systems = whether political parties, stock markets or ant colonies - present some of the most intriguing theoretical and practical challenges confronting the social sciences (end quote).
 
In our view, this is not only important for the social sciences, it is even more important for contemporary and future industrial design. Miller and Page show (quote) how to combine ideas from economics, political science, biology, physics and computer science to illuminate topics in organization, adaptation, decentralization and robustness. They also demonstrate how the usual extremes used in modeling can be fruitfully transcended, allowing the investigation of systems composed of moderate numbers of interacting and thoughtful, but not perfect, agents across a variety of important domains (end quote).

Complex Adaptive Systems

Industrial Design is not just about individuals interacting with isolated devices. People act in social networks via a wide variety of social media and mobile internet platforms and internets of things. People, communities and platforms co-evolve. No single stakeholder has full control over these systems, their evolution or their behavior. Yet it is important that designers participate in, or even lead the the design and evolution of these systems, addressing values, feasibility, usability and aesthetics, even before these systems are in operation. The learning objectives are to understand the nature of complex adaptive systems, to know examples and to master tools for analyzing the complexities by simulation
