Unicist Confederation


Work Process Automation, semi-automation and adaptation

The unicist work process design has become the core of business process management in order to take advantage of the new technological solutions produced in the field of software and hardware and integrating with innovative peopleware solutions to increase the production of results.

Marshall McLuhan said that the “medium is the message”. This also applies to IT solutions. That is why to design work processes it is necessary to build the integration of peopleware, hardware and software. It requires using the unicist double dialectical logic that allows integrating this triadic structure.

Different levels of efficacy require having a different level of automation. It becomes extremely difficult to install different levels of automation in organizations.

That is why there are usually different job levels that assume different levels of risk. Top management is based on adaptive systems while middle management is based on semi-automated systems.

Automation is, on the one hand, a job-killer but, on the other hand, it enhances the quality of human activity and allows developing business objects to ensure processes for business growth.

The integration of automation, semi-automation and adaptive systems is the core of the job oriented workstation design process after the general process has been solved.

This approach allows empowering the introduction of new technologies integrating them with the results that have to be produced and the peopleware that drives to them.

The Concept of Internet as a Business Catalyst

One of the roles of Internet is to work as a business catalyst for the real world. It is a marketplace in itself, which works as a catalyst for the real world marketplace if certain conditions are given.

Internet as a Business CatalystThe purpose of Internet as a catalyst is to build a link between sellers and buyers. To achieve this goal it is necessary that the websites had demonstrated to have a gravitational influence on the market that is being influenced and the necessary critical mass to build a true complementation with the market.

This implies having a strong competitive capacity within the limits of a cooperative attitude with the potential customers.

Complementation building requires developing a functional link that is fully dependent on the value proposition that is made.

But at the same time it implies being able to build a personal link that deals with the personal benefits for the customers to achieve a true complementation, which requires that both the value proposition and the seller’s organization have been “bought”.

U-DROIDS as Adaptive Business Robots

The discovery and development of the unicist logical approach to business made the development of the unicist objects driven technologies possible to manage businesses as adaptive systems. Both technologies provided the basic tools to develop business robots that allow introducing adaptive automation in value generating processes to manage the adaptive aspects of businesses.

U-droidsThere exist three paradigmatic productive robots:

  • Autopilots
  • Industrial Robots
  • Unicist Business Robots

Unicist Business Robots

Business robots are focused on managing the adaptive systems of an organization in order to ensure the achievement of the objectives that have been established.

1) The U-DROID was developed to:

Deal with minimum and defensive strategies using business objects to develop their actions.

Develop energy conservation functions of the maximal strategies.

2) The U-DROID is the first business robot that was designed to manage adaptive business processes. It has two versions:

  • U-DROID for businesses
  • U-DROID as a professional assistant

U-DROID for Businesses

Maximal vs. Minimum Strategies

Maximal strategies are those actions that expand the boundaries of an activity while they count with the safe environment generated by the minimum strategy.

Minimum strategies are those actions that happen within the boundaries of an activity that provide the necessary complement to sustain a status quo.

Defensive vs. Expansive Strategies

The U-DROID was designed to develop defensive strategies and sustain expansive strategies. Although one of its main uses is the expansion of the commercial network, this expansion only provides the basics to build or empower commercial relationships.

The Use of Business Objects

The U-DROID was designed to develop business objects driven processes. These business objects include:

Characteristic

Function

Action

Operational Objects
Functional Objects
Systemic Objects
Knowledge Objects (*)
Driving Objects
Inhibiting Objects
Entropy Inhibiting
Catalyzing Objects
Semiotic Objects
Semantic Objects
Commercial Objects
Learning Objects

(*) One of the functions of the U-DROID is to provide the necessary knowledge needed to make decisions. This implies giving automatic access to the knowledge objects reservoirs that correspond to the specialty.

Peopleware: the core of the operational business models

Peopleware can be defined, in plain language, as the structure of attitudes that influence individuals’ activities.

Unicist PeoplewareSoftware can be observed because it establishes the interface of individuals with an activity.

Hardware can be perceived because the evident appearances of hardware can be observed but its functionality can be perceived through the possibilities it offers to software.

But peopleware is the deepest aspect of human activity and can only be intuited and validated using destructive and non-destructive pilot tests.

Peopleware defines attitudes. Therefore it deals with the deepest approach to individual behavior that deals with the human capacity of apprehending nature.

This implies entering the field of the ontology of human behavior, the natural organization, the laws of organizational equilibrium and the apprehension of objects that emulate the organization of nature.

Organizational equilibrium is the purpose of peopleware. It has to be considered that organizational equilibrium needs to vary depending on the cycle of a business.

When growth becomes necessary, centrifugal forces need to prevail. But centripetal forces need to prevail when profit improvement needs to be achieved.

SMS: Profit from the unicist approach to message building

The purpose of a message is to deliver information. This purpose is achieved by adding value to the receiver and the energy conservation function is given by the credibility of the message. A message is an object that needs to be carefully defined if the message has multiple users or receivers. When it is a univocal message the design has to respond to the possibilities of the receiver to decode the information included.

Unicist Ontogenetic Map of a MessageThis post is about the nature of messages and an example of how to build a message in an e-mail. We recommend apprehending its structure and then applying it when you prepare messages for your SMS.

Messages are naturally segmented because value can only be added to those who need the information that is being provided.

That is why the first question that has to be defined is the segmentation of the receivers of a message.

When developing a mass media, this segmentation defines the editorial line in which all the messages have to fit.

The segmentation to be used is the functional segmentation because it is the segmentation that synthesizes the operational segments to be considered.

The Structure of a Message

The maximal strategy of a message is driven by the value it adds and the minimum strategy is given by its credibility.

The value added allows the message to be remembered. Data provided to someone who has no need for it cannot be stored in the long term memory in a meaningful way. It might be recalled but as it is meaningless it can not be used.

Information without credibility cannot be integrated in any case but when it is based on a stimulus of human weaknesses. Gossip is an example of this case. But the lack of credibility generates doubt in the mind of the receiver and doubt provokes inaction.

Using the fundamentals of words to solve problems of adaptive systems

Fundamentals of Words Synthetic / ambiguous language is only necessary to deal with adaptive systems. In this case the logic of communication processes has to be followed.

The logic of a communication process has been discovered in anthropological researches and studies by different psychological schools. It can be synthesized in four steps:

  1. Rituals – Protocol to begin with a communication.
  2. Conflict Management – Dealing with the hidden objective of a communication.
  3. Activity – Developing the task implicit in the communication.
  4. Pastime – Obtaining the benefit for the activity that has been done (Good-bye included).

An example of a message:

The unicist logical approach to adaptive business processes

The available IT technologies made the development of adaptive systems meaningful. The objective of building adaptive systems is to integrate software, hardware and peopleware in adaptive work or business processes to assure the quality of the results produced.

Adaptive IT ArchitectureThe development of this technology became possible because of the discovery of the unicist laws of evolution, the object driven organization that emulates the organization of nature and the drivers of human behavior that allow designing the necessary peopleware.

Before the existence of adaptive systems the solution was fully focused on the efficacy of individuals which increased the responsibility of the person who is doing a job. This forced them to consider all the details of the feedback from the environment which increased the probability of errors.

The catalyst of an adaptive IT system is its capacity to learn from the freed-back to improve its adaptive behavior. The entropy inhibitor of the system is given by its capacity to learn to ensure conjunctural adaptiveness.

Adaptiveness is based on the existence of drivers that make it possible. The level of the drivers is the following:

1) There are analogical drivers that are based on the recognition of patterns.

2) There are rule based drivers that include the preexisting and add rules that correspond to the activity.

3) There are empirical drivers that include the preexisting and add empirical information obtained using mathematical models.

4) There are objects based drivers that include the preexisting and add concept based objects as intrinsic adaptive systems.

The integration of the adaptive aspects with the operational and administrative aspects is necessary in order to make user oriented information systems.

The level of adaptiveness of a system has to be designed according to the characteristics of a work process.

Administrative and operational systems can be transformed into adaptive systems by adding and integrating an adaptive interface.

Pragmatism is the key to deal with complex adaptive systems

The unicist approach to complexity sciences is a pragmatic, structural and functionalist approach. This approach establishes the framework for the research on complexity sciences but also for the unicist logical approach that uses the conclusions of the researches in their application in the field of complex adaptive systems.

Framework of the Unicist ApproachIt was developed in order to provide a specific methodology to deal with complex adaptive systems in order to avoid the extension of the use of methodologies that correspond to the field of researching systemic aspects of reality.

This drove towards the integration of a pragmatic, structural and functionalist approach to research in the field of complexity sciences that it the framework used in all the researches done at The Unicist Research Institute.

Pragmatism

The research in the field of complex adaptive systems does not allow artificial experiments because they change the conjunction of elements that integrate them.

Therefore a pragmatic approach that integrates practice and theory is needed. This implies that complexity science requires the integration of reliable knowledge (theory) with experiencing (practice) in order to define the functionality of a complex adaptive system.

If you are not aware of the meaning of the word pragmatic, we strongly recommend researching the concept “pragmatism” on the Internet.

Functionalism

Complex adaptive systems need to be approached based on the emergence they generate. A functionalist approach is needed to apprehend the functionality of the system.

Apprehending the functionality implies integrating the purpose with is implicit in its emergences with the active function and the energy conservation function. This allows defining the functionality of a complex adaptive system.

If you are not aware of the meaning of the word functionality, we strongly recommend researching the concept “functionalism” on the Internet.

Structuralism

A complex adaptive system has, by definition, open boundaries. That is why the integration with the restricted and wide contexts is required.

Therefore a structural approach is needed to integrate the system with its context and the environment to make it reasonable, understandable and predictable.

If you are not aware of the meaning of the word structural, we strongly recommend researching the concept “structuralism” on the Internet.

The Unicist Logical Approach to Adaptive Systems for Work

Businesses are typical adaptive systems. We use the word “business” as a synonym of “work”. Businesses need to adapt to the environment in order to achieve the permanence of their transcendent goals and the personal goals of their participants.

Adaptive systems for work are entities that interact with the environment having the characteristics of a complex system but with an implicit and explicit duty to produce a predefined result.

Work is an environment that generates the need of adaptive systems in order to produce results and administrative systems to use and control the methods used.

The maximal strategy implies achieving or overcoming the planned results using procedures with the necessary flexibility and controlling them based on the feedback of the market.

The minimum strategy is based on using strict methods that use rigid procedures and intrinsic control systems based on accepted standards.

The Unicist Approach changed the IT Architecture

Until the Unicist Approach was used in IT Architecture, the designs were based on finding an optimal solution integrating hardware and software.

The Unicist Approach integrated the preexisting approaches to hardware and software with peopleware, integrating the IT Architecture with the business process operation.

“Peopleware transforms business architectures into operational business models. Peopleware is defined by the structure of objects that individuals have in their minds which define the models they use when dealing with hardware and software at work.

Peopleware is what allows integrating hardware and software providing the true driver of the business model. It is necessary to understand the organizational equilibrium laws, the natural organization and the object driven business model in order to manage peopleware.

When peopleware has been defined, an adequate aesthetic use of software with a solid hardware will make business processes operational.

Peopleware is perhaps the most significant development to provide business operational solutions to companies. It allows transforming administrative systems into adaptive systems to upgrade work processes when managing businesses as unified fields.

Peopleware provides the utility to operational business models allowing software to be user friendly (aesthetic for the user) and the functionality of hardware to become solid.”
