Best answer
Other systems in the system's environment can have unanticipated effects because they have relationships with the system over and above whatever formal relationships (e.g. data exchange) are defined in the system specification. For example, the system may share an electrical power supply and air conditioning unit, they may be located in the same room (so if there is a fire in one system then the other will be affected) etc.
