Typically, the smaller units comprising a system are called subsystems or components, and the larger unit enclosing a system is called a suprasystem or environment.

Example: The targeted suprasystem of a family may be the church community or ethnic group to which it belongs.

A supra system is the larger unit comprises smaller units. For example a university has different branches like Arts, science, computers, maths etc., each of these branches can be observed as a smaller unit which functions independently.
