The selection of input and output schemes for a system and the model projection problems.

*(English)*Zbl 0827.93006Summary: A number of important control theoretic problems are involved in the selection of input-output schemes of a given system and one family of such problems is referred to as Model Projection Problems (MPP); these problems deal with the selection of effective sets of inputs, outputs out of larger potential sets of inputs, outputs respectively. The aim of this paper is to classify the different types of MPPs and discuss their relevance in the context of integrated system design. Central to the present approach are problems of transformation of structural invariants. The overall objective is to suggest the importance of control theoretic tools in early process design stages, which are not traditionally associated with control problems.
