Bionic systems are artifical systems which have the “type” of biological systems. This paper describes conception of bionic systems and a methodology to develop these new systems.After the procedure of the metaphor from biological world to artificial world is indicated, a metaphorical model for the artificial systems is constructed as a metaphor of the biological systems.Models of the bionic systems, i. e., metaphorical models of artificial systems have the following special features; (1) Set structure which consists of autonomous modeling elements. (2) Set of Input/Output functions which constructs the modeling element. (3) Existence of cyclic loops which are obtained by Input/Output chain. (4) Automatic decision making of the systems which is based on stability of the cyclic loops. (5) Self-organization for system design and system control.
