A Unicist Strategic Approach
The Unicist Functional Designer is the unicist logical tool to design actions in adaptive environments. It is based on a unicist ontological approach that allows managing the functionality and operation of adaptive systems.
The unicist ontological approach is based on the emulation of the intelligence of nature. It allows designing maximal strategies to generate growth and minimum strategies to ensure results in adaptive environments.

A Strategic Approach to Adaptive Environments
Adaptive systems and environments have open boundaries. Their management requires using a strategic approach that allows designing them, defining their functional actions and monitoring their evolution.
The Unicist Functional Designer is based on the use of the ontogenetic maps that define the functionality of adaptive entities whatever their kind.
The input to the system is the conceptual structure of the functionality of the entity and the output is the definition of the conceptual design, the definition of the binary actions and their synchronicity and the design of the business objects that are included in the synchronic actions.
The functional design process includes the possibility to basically define two types of actions:
- Actions to upgrade the functionality of an entity to position it at an influential level in the “credibility zone” established by the environment.
- Actions to influence the environment to achieve the goals that have been established as possible.
The functional designer is based on the emulation of the nature of adaptive entities that is defined by the ontogenetic map that defines the unicist ontological structure of its functionality.
The Strategic Map of Solutions
The dashboard of the designer describes the unified field of an adaptive entity, function, or process. It is a mind map of the actions process that allows confirming the availability of the necessary resources that make the functionality possible.
It includes a structural description of the functionality of an adaptive entity that allows guiding the mental emulation to define the necessary actions of an adaptive entity.
It includes the definition of the specific fundamentals that define the purpose, active function and energy conservation function of an entity and includes the different levels of actions that are needed to influence the environment to achieve the goals that were established.
The information of the dashboard allows monitoring the design of the solutions that are being built. It is the unicist logical tool that is used by the strategic analyst to monitor the activity of the different groups that are designing solutions.
The Design of Functional Solutions
The page of the central fundamentals defines their functionality and describes the actions that need to be developed to achieve the goals that have been established as possible.
Its description of the functionality of the fundamentals defines if it is needed to upgrade the functionality of the entity or if they are functional to exert influence in the environment.
The actions are designed using the unicist project manager that has been designed to develop the necessary actions to upgrade the functionality of the adaptive entity and to influence the environment to generate added value.
The definition of the actions includes the definition of the processes and the design of the necessary business objects to achieve goals. The results that are described in the tool need to have been tested by pilot tests and destructive tests.
The Design of Functional and Operational Actions
The Unicist Project Manager is part of the unicist logical tool and is the place where the unicist binary actions are defined and designed. They are based on the diagnosis of what is necessary to be done to generate predefined results.
The development of solutions in adaptive environment is a complex problem. Therefore, it requires being developed by a team of members who have experience in the field where the solution is being developed.
This work requires using the unicist extreme design method that has been developed to manage complex problems- It is based on the participation of at least three members:
- A coordinator
- An ombudsman
- A fallacy shooter
The development of the solutions includes pilot tests to evaluate the functionality of the design until it achieves the established goals and the use of destructive tests to expand the limits of the application of the solutions to ensure the boundaries of their functionality.
It requires using the unicist reflection method to build up the necessary upgrades of the solutions.
The Development of Synchronic Actions Plans
The implementation of binary actions requires following the synchronicity needed to introduce a superior functionality in an adaptive process.
This synchronicity needs to follow the rules of the ontogenesis of the functionality of an entity and includes the use of business objects to simplify processes, increase their quality, and simplify the maintenance and upgrade of the solutions.
The synchronic action plans establish the basics for the performance management of the implementation of solutions. Every strategic approach in business requires having separated the implementation of strategies from the monitoring of the results.
The synchronic action plans require organizing a team integrated by all the participants of the process to monitor its execution based on the feedback from the environment.
Defining the Unicist Conceptual Design
The unicist conceptual design of adaptive entities is based on defining the business objects, processes and their functionality.
It requires defining:
- The output and the input of the system
- The objects that integrate the system
- The functionality of the different objects that integrate the system
- The operational processes that are part of the system and their functionality
- The quality assurance of the objects and processes that ensure the final output
- The environment necessary to ensure the functionality of the system.
The conceptual design of and adaptive entity defines the map of the actions that are needed to develop solutions in adaptive environments.
