The 4th Industrial Revolution, as a concept, can be synthetically defined as the“revolution of adaptive business processes”. Adaptability requires managing the concepts of the business functions to be able to integrate different people,technologies, processes, systems, objects and tools.
Adaptive solutions can only be managed by structured flexible processes with a high level of productivity and quality.
Adaptability requires managing the concepts and fundamentals of the business functions which allow managing the root causes of market behavior, the root causes of businesses processes and the root causes of industrial processes to ensure customer satisfaction, productivity and quality.
The evolution of IT,Internet and Artificial Intelligence finally allowed transforming adaptiveness into the 4th Industrial Revolution. Growth and business expansion is the effect produced by the introduction of this revolution. Growth is the consequence of adaptiveness, which allows empowering customer centricity while increasing productivity and quality.
NOTE: The Unicist Research Institute has been, since 1976, the pioneer in complexity science research to deal with adaptive entities and became a private global decentralized leading research organization in the field of adaptive systems and environments. It was one of the precursors of the Industry 4.0 concept
