Cobotization of the Object Driven Organization Model

Object-driven organization is the model that integrates business objects in the processes to simplify them, reduce their costs and accelerate the execution. Object-driven organization uses cobots, collaborative robots, to manage the objects that are included in the processes.

Cobots are collaborative robots that are based on the use of unicist AI and functionalist technologies that manage the fundamentals and the operational aspects of businesses. The use of cobots simplifies and saves costs when applied to operational and managerial processes and fosters growth when used in commercial environments.

They include two aspects: the generation of rules to drive the execution and the automation of business processes. Their level of autonomous intelligence fully depends on the type of processes that are being managed:

  • In operational processes, there is only a need for execution rules.
  • In managerial processes, logical rules are necessary.
  • In commercial processes, unicist AI is needed.

The unicist cobots are sustained by the use of the rules of unicist logic, which drive the unicist AI to manage commercial environments that require a high level of adaptability.

The design of cobots requires using functional design to manage the functionality of business processes. The unicist functional design is fully compatible with design thinking and other methodologies that are customer/user centered.

Unicist Cobots in the 4th Industrial Revolution

Unicist Cobots are collaborative business robots that sustain human activities. They significantly increase the efficiency and adaptability of processes. They are systems that foster growth and increase profitability.

Cobots simplify businesses by managing the functionality of their processes. They are the core approach to manage businesses in the 4th industrial revolution.

In this context, there are operational, managerial and commercial cobots.

On the other hand, cobots might have two basic functions. Forward integration, which includes the development of adaptive automation, and backward integration, that provides the necessary knowledge for decision making processes.

The Use of Unicist AI

Cobots became possible due to the discovery and development of the unicist logic and the development of unicist AI that allow defining and implementing the binary actions that are needed to ensure results in businesses.

The unicist AI is a fundamentals-based AI that uses indicators, predictors and the rules established by the unicist logic.

It allows developing the necessary automation of business processes that allows managing the adaptability of business functions. Unicist AI solves the subjective bias of data-based AI.

The Use of Binary Actions

Any adaptive system and environment is driven by binary actions. Binary actions are two synchronized actions that expand businesses while they ensure their results. Unicist AI allows defining the natural binary actions that are needed in a process.

Binary actions were developed to manage the evolution of adaptive environments by managing actions to install maximal strategies to grow and minimum strategies to ensure results.

There are two types of binary actions: catalyzing actions and driving actions. Their functionality is defined by the ontogenetic maps of the business processes.

Program for Adolescents

We invite you to invite your children or the children of your friends to participate in the “Empower your Freedom” program that will take place on TWITCH from February 2022 on. It is a non-profit program that has been designed for teenagers from 14 to 17 years old. It works as a catalyst for abductive reasoning processes and demands 1-hour a week (including the 20-minute session on TWITCH).

Abductive reasoning, introduced by Charles S. Peirce, allows apprehending the functionality of things. The unicist logic was developed to manage such functionality and provided the rules for abductive reasoning.

This logic also enabled the development of the unicist AI, which is a fundamentals-based AI, that allows managing the functionality of processes. Unicist AI also minimizes the subjective bias of data-based AI ensuring big data management.

This is part of the transgenerational development non-profit project The Unicist Research Institute is sponsoring and developing to give adolescents the chance to enter the world with a functionalist approach that can easily be managed by facing the use of computer games going beyond intuition. Access; www.unicist.net/economics/next-generation-development-program

What for?

The unicist logical reasoning is the next stage of abductive reasoning. The abductive reasoning approach was developed by Charles S. Peirce who could not relate it with reasoning rules. That is why it could not be systematically included in social education, which is the case of deductive and inductive reasoning.

This problem was solved by the development of the unicist logic that explains the functionality of things. Unicist logical reasoning was developed to use the unicist logic to manage the functionality of the real world. It is somehow related to abductive reasoning because it includes rule based abductive reasoning processes.

Abductive reasoning is not only necessary to manage the functionality of things, but also to deal with the future and with innovations, to develop strategies and to adapt to the environment. This requires using the unicist logic to define the functional structures of both the aspects that are being managed and the environment.

Abductive reasoning, using the unicist logic, was made manageable due to the development of the unicist functional design method that manages the ontogenetic maps of the functionality of things and processes. This enabled designing and building reliable operational solutions in adaptive environments.

We hope that you decide to offer this opportunity to them.

Organizing by Objects to Ensure Results

It is based on establishing the natural organization model that corresponds to a business. The organization by objects and roles allows organizing the business processes as a unified field to achieve the goals established by a strategy.

The object driven organization is the adaptive model that allows transforming strategies into an object driven architecture. It is a natural organization for institutionalized businesses.

Institutionalization fosters, on the one hand, timeless strategies in order to ensure the permanence of a business and, on the other hand, short-term strategies to adapt to the conjunctures of the environment.

The final objective is to transform a business strategy into a business organization emulating the organization of nature. Nature, and any complex adaptive system, is organized by objects. This is evident when one sees the ecosystem or the organs of a human body.

In the field of business, the object driven organization is based on the design of the business processes, integrating business objects to achieve the strategic objectives that have been established.

Objects are adaptive systems that have a concept that defines their purposes, have a value generating function and a quality assurance system that makes them reliable.

Only people who manage a process can use objects in a meaningful way. The example of an autopilot in an airplane makes this evident. An autopilot has limits where its use is functional, and the pilot needs to reassume the process when these limits are being exceeded.

Unicist Root Cause Management: A Logical Approach to Business

Unicist Root Cause Management introduced an approach for problem solving, facing the management of root causes and avoiding the use of shortcuts used as palliatives, to develop structural solutions.

Unicist Root Cause Management introduced an approach to develop structural solutions for problems in adaptive environments.

It drives to research the fundamentals of efficacy and efficiency and find a solution that integrates the problems, their restricted context and their wide context.

The Logical Approach

The unicist logical approach to businesses and their processes allowed managing their root causes.

This logic made businesses reasonable, understandable, predictable and manageable. This logic made the development of the Unicist Artificial Intelligence possible.

The power of the unicist logic lies in its simplicity. It only requires reasoning in terms of maximal strategies and minimum strategies and of complementation and supplementation. It implies moving from a dualistic approach towards a functionalist approach.

It is based on the discovery of the functionality of the intelligence of nature that drove to the development of the unicist logic, which allows managing the functionality, dynamics and evolution of adaptive systems with open boundaries.

The unicist logic allows managing the root causes and developing binary actions that manage maximal strategies to grow and minimum strategies to ensure results. It simplifies business processes by building business objects and catalysts to ensure and accelerate the generation of results.

It is the approach needed to manage adaptability in the 4th Industrial Revolution.

Management 4.0: Unicist Object driven Organization

The organization by roles and objects, which is functional in adaptive business environments, is based on the use of binary actions that are sustained by the use of business objects.

Unicist business objects (UBO) are encapsulated adaptive systems that produce predefined results that can be inserted in work processes to increase productivity and quality and to save energy.

The Unicist Research Institute has developed Business Objects that allow emulating the organization of nature minimizing the energy consumed to generate value.

The Object Driven Organization emulates the organization of nature in institutions. The same way nature is organized by objects, every complex adaptive system is integrated by interdependent objects that make adaptiveness possible.

The human body is an example of this organization by objects. Because of their complexity, objects have, among other characteristics, open boundaries which imply that any “observer” is part of the system.

The Use of Business Objects

The use of business objects structures the timing and synchronicity of the binary actions of business processes. It also provides the necessary acceleration to achieve the needed critical mass and the required speed to adapt to the environment.

Business Objects are adaptive systems that generate added value and save energy within the limits of their concept having a quality assurance system and a methodology to sustain alternative solutions. The Unicist Objects provided are adapted to the business, the market and the scenario of a client.

Objects are productive adaptive units that have a concept, an added value, the necessary quality assurance and a methodology to ensure the minimum strategy. To imagine an object please consider an automatic pilot in an airplane. It can be considered a “paradigmatic” object.

From a functional point of view there are different types of objects:

  • Driving Objects
    To drive processes
  • Catalyzing Objects
    To accelerate processes
  • Entropy Inhibiting Objects
    To inhibit the entropy of business processes
  • Inhibiting Objects
    To inhibit dysfunctional events in a business
  • Gravitational Objects
    To influence the results of processes

Synthesis

Unicist Business Objects are proven solutions based on the use of the unicist ontological algorithms that are part of the functionalist approach and can be installed in processes in order to save energy and increase quality to produce results.

The energy saving in a normal business process is usually more than 30%. The investment in Business Objects is recovered in less than one year.

The Use of Binary Actions in Business

Binary actions are two synchronized actions that aim at the same purpose, which expand businesses while they ensure their results. They were developed to manage the evolution of adaptive environments by managing actions to install maximal strategies to grow and minimum strategies to ensure results.

Binary actions empower the value of processes while they diminish their costs. They use catalysts to expand the boundaries of solutions and business objects to accelerate processes and ensure their functionality.

The research developed at The Unicist Research Institute demonstrated that any adaptive system and environment (living being or artificial construction) is driven by binary actions. Some examples will help to grasp the idea:

Unicist Binary Actions
  • The active function and the energy conservation function of the intelligence of a tree drive its growth and survival.
  • Lift and propulsion make airplanes take-off and fly.
  • The cover and the back-cover define the functionality of the packaging of a book.
  • The music and the lyrics of a song define its aesthetics.

Business Functionality is driven by Binary Actions

Here you can find a series of unicist binary actions to generate value that are evident.

  • Increasing productivity + Ensuring quality = Value generation
  • Influential marketing + Effective selling = Generating revenue
  • Ensuring efficacy + Ensuring efficiency = Effectiveness
  • Active participation + Non-exerted power = Leadership
  • Functional processes + Functional objects = Organization

An Example of Binary Actions

The definition and use of specific binary actions require having in mind the concepts and the generic binary actions that need to be developed and their synchronicity.

This process is simplified using the “Guiding Idea Template” that is developed based on the synthetic concepts of the project that is being managed.

Example Binary Action Building

This guiding idea includes the description of the concept and the description of the basic binary actions that need to be developed. This guiding idea is transformed into synchronic action processes to achieve the objectives that have been established.

Installing Binary Actions in Applications

The functional design of processes and the binary actions to achieve the objectives of business processes are implemented as applications.

The unicist intelligent applications for business functions are based on the knowledge of the concepts and fundamentals of the business processes involved, which allow defining the binary actions that need to be managed to ensure results.

The development of intelligent applications is materialized using different platforms according to the needs of the solution. There are multiple platforms like Oracle APEX, SAP Business Application Studio, Integromat, Zoho Creator, Outsystems , etc.to develop apps.

In-House Universities in the 4IR

Context: The Functionalist Approach to the 4th Industrial Revolution

The Unicist Education is based on a functionalist approach to businesses that is based on managing the drivers of business functions that define the operational processes. This functionalist approach includes the management of strategies in the field where they are needed to deal with the adaptability introduced by the 4th Industrial Revolution.

The 4th Industrial Revolution can be synthetically defined as the “revolution of adaptive business processes”, which requires using a functionalist approach. Adaptability requires managing the functionality of business processes to be able to integrate different people, technologies, processes, systems, objects, and tools.

In this context, adaptive solutions can only be managed by structured flexible processes with a high level of productivity and quality. Adaptability requires managing the functionality of business processes. It is based on the concepts and fundamentals of the business functions which allow managing the adaptability of business processes, enhance customer orientation, foster growth, and increase profitability. The functionalist approach to business is a must to take advantage of the 4th Industrial Revolution.

https://www.unicist.org/pdf/wp-unicist-functionalist-approach.pdf

Unicist Education

The Unicist In-House Universities were developed to introduce the use of the unicist functionalist approach in organizations. They are for professionals who work in organizations and need to exceed the operationality and manage the functionality of processes.

The functionalist approach exceeds but includes the operational approach and increases notoriously the effectiveness and adaptability of work processes. Unicist In-House Universities generate positive cash-flow for the organizations they work in, based on the solutions that are developed.

The Functionalist Approach to Education

The unicist functionalist education model was developed to manage functionalist learning in the field of social, economic, and business behavior. It is based on the discovery of the unicist ontology of human learning in adaptive environments that allowed defining the functionality of this process.

Functionalist education is for people who already have the professional knowledge to manage the operational aspects in a specific field and need to access the functionality of processes. It requires to exceed the empirical aspects of activities to introduce a functionalist approach.

Superior Education Context

Reflection Driven Learning

The education of the Unicist Corporate University is driven by the use of a functionalist approach to develop real solutions that are sustained by pilot tests, destructive tests, and non-destructive tests. These tests are the input to reflection processes that allow storing meaningful knowledge in the long-term memory of the learners.

The use of the unicist ontology of learning processes and the ontology of the problems that are being solved allow managing the levels of applications the participants can solve.

This knowledge sustains the design and application of pilot tests, destructive tests, and non-destructive tests to drive the learning processes. The development of pilot tests is full responsibility of the participants. It requires managing the functionality of the processes that are being built.

The activity of professors is simplified using DidactiBots, based on unicist fundamentals-based AI, to guide the learning of the participants, which is triggered by the use of pilot tests, destructive tests and non-destructive tests to generate solutions.

Basically, action-reflection-action drives the learning processes of participants. These actions are in fact the previously described pilot tests. In this context, the reflection processes are sustained by self-criticism which, on the one hand, allows learning from the feedback and, on the other hand, installs a meaningful knowledge in the long-term memory of the learners.

The Unicist Functionalist Approach to Telework

Telework is defined as the organizational process where work is done at one workspace, while the value is generated in another. That is why both in-house and home-office business processes might be organized as telework.

All organizations develop telework in some way. Between 50% and 90% of the work of a CEO, depending on the type of business, is telework.

The explosion of IT, communications, Internet, unicist logic and conceptual engineering established a new technological framework for telework that is now catalyzed by the needs of the 4th Industrial Revolution and the coronavirus crisis.

We consider that this opens the possibility of structuring telework in a way that allows managing the coronavirus crisis but also installs a counter-cycle that helps introducing the organizational adaptability fostered by the technologies of the 4th Industrial Revolution. Telework will be from now on part of most organizational cultures.

Companies Culture in Telework Processes

The development of telework requires strengthening the culture of an organization. Most people see the values of a culture in the materialistic aspects of the environment. To avoid that telework weakens the culture of an organization it is necessary to introduce a superior ethics to integrate people. If not, telework will end in an outsourcing process based on individual workers.

The following example of bestseller building is a way to sustain the culture of a publishing firm that works in a telework environment.

The use of tools that ensure that participants share the concept of an organization ensures the achievement of results and reinforces its culture. At a managerial level, the introduction of binary actions provides a superior level of functionality in business processes. It allows building a culture where people share the concepts of what is being done which drives towards full commitment. Learn more

Case study = rigid knowledge Vs. Research and application = adaptive knowledge

In higher education, a widely used methodology has been established, such as case studies. This mechanism is both a trap and a false solution, and it is that the rigidity of the proposed solution is inapplicable in the field of the unknown.

Does the solution Tesla applied give me tools to solve my current problem? Or, how did Uber approach its business strategy? Well, unless you are the CEO of Tesla or Uber, the information explored in the case is hardly replicable in the particular situations of participants in educational programs.

The approach to the field of the unknown, which is the main characteristic of complex problems, is feasible thanks to the investigative approach to root cause diagnosis proposed by the unicist logic.

Unicist logic searches through the conceptual structure of reality for the root causes that determine a specific reality and proposes a way forward to obtain solutions to complex problems.

In this way it is possible to obtain adaptive knowledge that allows us to approach a problem in a different way, increasing the probability of obtaining the desired results.
