The unicist management of causality is based on the unicist ontology of the complex adaptive systems that describes their nature and defines the concepts that regulate their evolution.
A problem exists when a functionality, that has been defined as possible to be achieved, cannot be fulfilled.
The unicist approach to problem solving defines three types of causes that are integrated in the concept of problem causality.
- Triggering causes: that define the operational causes that generate a problem.
- Necessary causes: that define the root causes of the problem.
- The limit causes: that define the boundaries of what is possible to be achieved.

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
