Method/System?
« on: October 18, 2018, 02:14:26 AM »
I got this from an author some years back, I do agree with it. Is it a bit vague? To some perhaps >>
"A METHOD is based on a procedure, whereas a SYSTEM is based on a plan".

Yes, it is kind of vague.

A plan includes a procedure, a process is always part of a plan which may or may not contain multiple procedures simultaneously.
A process alone is a routine, a repetitive order of actions.
The plan stands above the process(es) in order to judge how is performing and do any necessary changes, if needed.

This is how I understand the meaning of procedure and plan, but it's not clear about system and method, for long time thought that these 2 words are referring to the same thing, not that it matters so much, it's just about terminology, nothing more.

Because we have been in this before but you didn't answer, still you haven't.
I'm the kind of person who likes to finish what he starts, maybe you are not.

A method uses a common process to produce an outcome. A system incorporates multiple methods, usually complex, to systematically work together to achieve a common goal.
Even Chances verses the multi faceted physics approach to gain a specific result.

A system uses fixed rules. This is the reason that systems can be programmed and tested. The results can be studied. A strategy has no fixed rules and many indications. A strategy together with one or more systems is a method ore a play manner. A real roulette player uses methodes and his experience to become a successful player.
