"A work system is a system in which human participants and/or machines perform work using information, technology, and other resources to produce products and/or services for internal or external customers. Typical business organizations contain work systems that procure materials from suppliers, produce and deliver products or services to customers, find customers, create financial reports, hire employees, coordinate work across departments, and perform many other functions.
The work system concept is a common denominator for many types of systems that operate within or across organizations."
Volunteers are the heart of IIE and its technical divisions.
