The architecture and design of 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.

Work as an Adaptive SystemAdaptive 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 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”.

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.

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.
