Unicist XD – Methodology for business objects design 1

The history of the “Unicist Extreme Design” taxonomical research began in the early eighties.  A unicist ontological design of a given reality requires the knowledge of the involved concepts. Therefore, the discovery of conceptual structures precedes the design activity.

It took many years to research the conceptual structures of most of the objects related to human activity. Now, with the available conceptual knowledge bank, the design of complex solutions has been made possible without needing to research while designing.

The major problems of human designs are their incompatibility with the nature of the objects being designed.

When designing solutions, there is usually insufficient time to research the concepts involved. To solve this problem, the operational function of the object is usually considered as representative of its concept. This solution is very practical but insufficient when designing differentiated objects.

The knowledge of concepts is unnecessary when designing objects ruled by common sense (conventional wisdom).

This technology was named Unicist XD – Extreme Design – because of its homologous relation with the XP – Extreme Programming – technology.
The Unicist XD technology

The use of the Unicist XD methodology sustains the simplicity and reliability of design processes. The design process can be accelerated by the use of the Unicist XD. It was developed to approach complexity and the solution of problems in an uncertain or risky environment.

Unicist XD is essentially analogous to Extreme Programming. It can be considered as one of the existing concept-driven design methodologies.
It helps to catalyze the functionality of matrix organizations.

The Unicist XD methodology has been used since 1981. It was basically applied to the development of business objects.

Unicist Workflow Design – Technical analysis

After conceptual design has been finished workflow require an precise technical analysis.
Technical analysis deals with the cause-effect relation between “variables” that have been identified by making a systemic compromise.
In order to be able to manage a reality in everday’s actions it is necessary to define it with systemic tools.
Systemic tools are based on cause-effect relations and therefore the result of trans-forming a complex reality into a simple system downgrades the possibilities of success. In technical analysis success becomes probabilistic.
Fundamental analysis defines the possibilities (0 or 1) and technical analysis de-fines the probabilities (from 0 to 1).
Fundamental analysis has been downgraded during the last 30 years. As there were no objective tools to approach it, it was considered as the “subjective” aspects of technical analysis.
The discovery of the unicist theory of evolution and the structure of the concept that regulate the evolution of living beings and their deeds, established the structure for fundamental analysis integrating it with technical analysis in order to develop reliable knowledge.

Unicist fundamental analysis for conceptual IT design

To translate this post click on your flag in the right menu of the blog’s homepage.

Fundamental analysis is the core of conceptual IT design. Fundamental analysis is the approach that defines the limits of the possibilities of the evolution of a given reality. Fundamentals define the boundaries implicit in the functionality of that given reality.
Although adaptive systems and complex systems have open boundaries, they can only be managed when limits have been defined.
Defining limits based on the fundamentals of a given reality implies dealing with its nature and accepting its evolution laws. In the short or the long run the evolution of a given reality will drive towards its nature.
Fundamental analysis provides the tools to describe the nature of a reality in order to forecast its evolution. Evolution can be inhibited and catalyzed by human ac-tions; but it cannot be changed.
