Ithaka, the marvelous journey through a system life-cycle

In my professional path in packaging industry, I could and I am still experiencing systems full life-cycle.
The proposed presentation proposes one specific system's life-cycle through its:
Teams, extended and external teams: compositions and attitude
The challenges, the risks and opportunities
The corresponding uncertainties
The system boundaries and with relationships with SOS
The methodologies, tools and technologies introduced, specialized and challenged.

The high level inspiration for this journey comes from the poem Ithaka of Kostantino Kavafis.
