Encomienda/Hacienda System?

I was wondering what was the difference between the encomienda and the hacienda system. They are usually grouped together (like they are in the slideshow), and not too sure what they both mean

Hello! A quick difference note would be the timing, encomienda was more of the forced labor on property and it was meant to get the Spanish system in process (bringing more wealth to the mother country) while the hacienda system in my mind, is more self-sufficient and more for the colony. Hope this helps! Do your best on the test!
