Industry 4.0


Cognitive Systems to Foster Growth & Profitability

The Unicist Cognitive Systems in business manage the root causes, the dynamics and the evolution of the business processes they deal with. They were developed to manage businesses as adaptive systems to foster growth, process improvement, decision making, profit improvement and customer orientation.

Unicist Cognitive Systems

They take advantage of the technologies included in the 4th Industrial Revolution and use the knowledge of the concepts and fundamentals of the business functions to manage their root causes. The installation of Cognitive Systems generates a positive cash flow.

Unicist Cognitive Systems manage the unified fields of business functions using the unicist artificial intelligence to monitor the functionality of their fundamentals to ensure results. These systems are necessary to manage feedback dependent environments.

The Unicist Cognitive Systems were built upon the information provided by the more than 5,000 researches developed since 1976 at The Unicist Research Institute. These researches provided the necessary information to build the systems to support social and business decision making processes.

It was one of the precursors of the Industry 4.0 concept


Industrial Revolution and Mindsets

Industrial Revolutions foster and establish dominant mindsets to fulfill their purposes. These mindsets include the preceding mindset as complementary approaches.

Operational thinking is the dominant mindset in the 1st Industrial Revolution. Mechanization requires operational thinking and the solutions provided by this stage deal with the operation of things.

Analytical thinking is the dominant mindset in the 2nd Industrial Revolution. The analytical approach allows managing mass production in a meaningful way by dividing these masses into manageable entities.

Systemic thinking is the dominant mindset in the 3rd Industrial Revolution. Automation requires envisioning the unified field of the operation and its components in order to build the automated processes.

Conceptual thinking is the dominant mindset in the 4th Industrial Revolution. The Industry 4.0 stage is based in improving the adaptiveness of processes by being fully consumer/user/buyer oriented, increasing the productivity which implies improving the cost/value relation and increasing the quality to become fully reliable.

The Concept of the 4th Industrial Revolution

The birth of an industrial revolution is triggered by new technologies which produce a new industrial stage when they are able to satisfy latent needs of a society. The history of industrial revolutions is that they expand as such in environments where they satisfy the needs of an “establishment” of a culture.

As soon as they begin to have a viral expansion, the industrial revolutions demonstrate their true value and the underlying concepts can be perceived.

In the case of the 4th Industrial Revolution it becomes evident that its purpose is to introduce adaptiveness into industrial and business processes.

It has to be considered that adaptiveness, the concept that underlies flexibility, was always a goal in industry but could not be solved without increasing costs and affecting the quality of the produces. Industry 4.0, due to the now available technologies, introduced adaptiveness but also increased the productivity and quality of the produces.

This opened a new stage that was based on industrial processes, although it deals with businesses as a whole. It introduces adaptiveness by managing the concepts and fundamentals of business functions.  This allows managing the root causes of processes that increase their productivity, quality and ensure their reliability.
