Course content
Introduction to general system theory and general system characteristics. Static and dynamic systems description. Cybernetic systems examples. Definitions, division and introductory mathematical description of management systems. Elements and characteristics of linear management systems. Modelling and design of management systems simulation models. Tools for modelling and simulation of systems in MATLAB/Simulink/Continuous.

Learning activities and teaching methods
Dialogic (discussion, interview, brainstorming), Methods of individual activities, Laboratory work
Learning outcomes
The aim of the course is to provide theoretical knowledge in the field of system theory and control, as well as the skills necessary for designing simulation cybernetic economics models in MATLAB.
Students will be able to use mathematical tools for description of the logical, continuous linear and fuzzy control systems, based on which they can design a mathematical model and apply and analyse it in MATLAB/Simulink.

Assessment methods and criteria
Written examination, Home assignment evaluation, Work-related product analysis

There will be one 3-hour tutorial and one 5-hour meeting during the semester. In the tutorial the issue of key topics will be explained, more detailed information will be provided on preparing materials for the project "System analysis", and the issue of a specific topic in the management area will be solved. At the end of the semester during a meeting in a computer laboratory students will be required to design and analyse systems in MATLAB/Simulink/Continuous. During the semester students will be required to independently complete set tasks. The system proposal content summarizing the given topic will be specified in the introductory tutorial and/or in STAG. The "System analysis" projects will be handed in to the tutor in electronic form for evaluation and assessment. Assignment: completion of set tasks during the semester; completion and successful presentation of the semester project; successful passing of the final test. Examination is written and the questions are based on the set topics and on the project "System analysis".
