What I got till now it is a tool,in which we have all the documents which will let us know what work will be done in which sequence and at what time.
Can you please elaborate is this related to work package or activity, and what is need of that, and if it would not be there, what will happen.?

Whenever the word System is used do not think its a tool or document, this is how system is defined by wikipedia

A system is a set of interacting or interdependent components forming an integrated whole[1] or a set of elements (often called 'components' ) and relationships which are different from relationships of the set or its elements to other elements or sets.


Work Authorization System , is not a project schedule system, it does not contain activity or work package.

Lets take an example , in your project you have planned an activity to visit US office for taking sign off in system specification document.

All preconditions are completed , mean you have made the document and now as per project plan you can schedule the travel.

In your project, you have system in which the travel is approved, like you put a travel request, it gets approved by Business Unit head and on that basic your ticket get approved and you get money for travel, this is Work Authorization System for starting a travel.

and my example of link thread may also be used help further

You can think of like ... its a sign - off process which you need to follow before you start working on some work package, like you can think of that you have got an contract of constructing the road.. now you have planned the activities...one that is done you will do follow a process where you take an approval from local authority before you start the work... and this part is managed by work authorization system...
