Regarding Henson's domain ontologies, I always thought those reflected usage 
domains such as manufacturing, sailing, etc. rather than technologies. 
Regardless, Henson makes a key point that systems engineering critically 
depends on understanding the properties, characteristics and coefficients of 
stuff with which systems are materialized. 
FWIW, my current list of system ingredients is: 
Thermodynamics, Informatics, Biomatics, Teleonomics, Human social dynamics, 
Economic, and Ecologic    (01)

Furthermore, when systems morph (most do) the integrity of the resulting system 
depends on the Conservation Laws. Most of us are aware of Newton's view, i.e., 
+ Thermodynamics:  mass, momentum and energy
However must system engineering also honor
+ Informatics:    data, information and knowledge?
+ Biomatics: Being, Doing, Knowing?
+ Teleonomics:  skills, rate of learning, and rate of invention?
+ Human social dynamics:  trust, enthusiasm, co-evolution?
+ Economics:  Investment, ROI, Liquidity?
+ Ecologics:  Waste, Fads, Unintended Consequences?    (02)
