Supervisory systems overlook many subsystems and enable automated decision making, as shown in the following diagram.

An application of supervisory systems is in smart cities, where decisions are based on information collected through the IoT. The IoT collects data which is often unstructured, which can lead to uncertainty. The level of uncertainty that a system can tolerate and still support the required decisions is a key challenge in designing for the IoT.
