Abstract: In this paper, we present the viable system model (VSM) of Beer by examining its effectiveness in practice using a different and structured design. In order to support better viable systems, we deliver briefly the design and control systemic methodology (DCSYM) in strategic and procedure level. The conceptual environment of VSM within DCSYM will be presented as a systemic multi-methodology called 'VIPROCE' using the principles of total systems intervention (TSI) methodology. In the new viable and operational system we analyse organisational structures in strategic and procedure level where control and meta-control systems are used for decision and meta-decision making along with a process drawing tool. For this methodology, we present a real application for Organization for Health Care Services Provision, known as E.O.P.Y.Y. in Greece. Finally, we give our personal aspects for total viable development including human development.
