Cz/ en:ssme 171 Service system A service system (or customer service system, CSS) is a configuration of technology and organizational networks designed to deliver services that satisfy the needs, wants, or aspirations of customers. Scope of the term “Service system” is a term very frequently used in the service management, service operations, services marketing, service engineering, and service design literature.
While the term frequently appears, it is rarely defined.
One recent definition of a service system is a value coproduction configuration of people, technology, internal and external service systems connected via value propositions, and shared information (language, laws, measures, etc.).
The smallest service system is a single person and the largest service system is the world economy.
The external service system of the global economy is considered to be nature’s services or ecosystem services.
Service systems can be characterized by the value that results from interaction between service systems, whether the interactions are between people, businesses, or nations.
Most service system interactions aspire to be win-win, non-coercive, and non-intrusive.
However, some service systems may perform coercive service activities.
For example, agents of the state may use coercion in accordance with laws of the land.
A service system worldview is a system of systems that interact via value propositions. History Usages of the term service system (bold added) are provided below: The earliest known usage of the phrase service system in a book title is: Stochastic Service Systems.

MIT Sloan Management Review. 31(2). “Properly designed service technology systems allow relatively inexperienced people to perform very sophisticated tasks quickly — vaulting them over normal learning curve delays.” Examples: “Domino’s Pizza … industrial engineering and food science research automated the making of a pizza to as near a science as possible, eliminating much of the drudgery in such tasks, yet ensuring higher quality and uniformity.
Then, finding that its store managers were still spending fifteen to twenty hours per week on paperwork, Domino’s introduced NCR “mini-tower” systems at its stores to handle all of the ordering, payroll, marketing, cash flow, inventory, and work control functions … Federal Express … Its DADS (computer aided delivery) and
