This manual presents facility administrators with basic information on the analysis of systems operating in their organizations in order to provide effective long-range planning for rehabilitation programs. It provides a format for analyzing flow patterns and shows how systems analysis can be used to improve administrative decisions. Chapter 1 proposes a working definition of a facility system and examines the role of facilities within larger community systems. Chapter 2 examines the types of systems and the most likely system organization in facilities. Chapter 3 discusses system dynamics. In chapter 4 the major system processes are explained. Chapter 5 presents the analysis of systems and their processes. Finally, in chapter 6, the process of integrating a systems analysis process with facility program evaluation and long-range planning is outlined. A listing of systems analysis resources is appended.
