Give a concise but complete definition of the term “system”

A system is an organized assembly of mutually interdependent elements (equipment, facilities, materials, software, services, personnel, procedures...), working together to perform a useful function. The elements are affected by being in the system and are changed as they leave it, i.e. the whole is greater than the sum of the parts.

What is the difference between the fail-safe and fault tolerant design concepts?

In a fail-safe design, a failure condition will cause no (or minimum) harm to other parts and systems or danger to personnel. In a fault, tolerant design, the system can continue operating in the event of the failure of one or more of its components. A fault tolerant system is in principle also fail-safe, but not all fail-safe systems are fault tolerant.
