The 4th Industrial Revolution introduced a paradigm shift that required the use of a functionalist approach to businesses based on managing the functionalist principles of their processes to make them adaptive and customer centered.
The paradigm shift is based on organizing by managing the functionality of businesses using business objects instead of managing the operationality based on processes and tasks, which was the case until the 3rd industrial revolution. It increases energy efficiency by up to 30% depending on the market and industry.
Functionalist business technologies give access to the next stage of adaptability that is being introduced by the 4th Industrial Revolution.
They are based on the functionalist principles of business processes to manage their functional structures and unified fields. They are developed using ontological reverse engineering to find the principles and conceptual engineering to make them work.
The functionalist principles define that there is nothing in the universe, which is part of a system, that does not work with a purpose, an active and entropic function, and an energy conservation function, which define its unified field. This structure works through binary actions that produce the functionality of any entity or process.
The use of functionalist technologies includes the installation of prototypes of the solutions that are being built, using a set of tools that include functionalist design, conceptual mapping, task building, automation, unicist logical rules, and pilot testing.
