An object can be real or Conceptual. It is a term we use for Systematic building blocks of larger Systems – which themselves might be viewed as more-Complex objects.
Any object can be composed of sub-objects. It is a matter of taste, and relative Scope whether we use the term object or System to describe something.

An object is simply a “little System” – a building block of larger Systems. Object implies a potential Component of a larger System. The only distinction between the synonyms is that object infers something relatively small, compared to a “System”.
Given these two terms are mainly used completely distinctly – two Concepts have been allocated.
