Noteman says: View the Changing the number of systems on a page QuickStart Video for an overview.

A system is one line of connected staves across the page. This entry contains instructions for spacing, indenting, moving, or resizing systems. See Page layout for information on setting initial system position and size settings. See To create a system break, Measure layout, or Page turns for further instructions on laying out the measures that constitute systems.

For instructions on compacting staff systems by omitting empty staves (when printing orchestral scores, for example), and varying the number of staves in each system by removing blank staves, see Hiding staves.
