Cooperative R&D of Root Cause Systems

The Unicist System

The Unicist System 4.0 is a knowledge system that uses unicist concepts and fundamentals to manage the root causes of problems and the root drivers of solutions. Therefore, the use of the system generates a significant cash-flow. The Unicist System 4.0 is based on the following discoveries:

1) The functionality of concepts as root causes of human actions.

2) Unicist Strategy, that emulates the intelligence of nature, to develop maximal strategies and minimum strategies.

3) The structure of the concepts of economic, social, political and market behavior to develop Business Intelligence.

4) Unicist Object Driven Organization, that emulates the organization of nature, to build business objects.

5) Unicist Artificial Intelligence, that allows managing the root causes of business processes.

This system is installed as a prototyper, provided by The Unicist Research Institute, that is transformed into an ad-hoc system based on the applications to the specific business.

The Context: The 4th Industrial Revolution

The Unicist Approach to the 4th Industrial Revolution

The concept of Industry 4.0, applied to a business as a whole, is necessary to produce sustainable growth.

The 4th Industrial Revolution introduced adaptiveness in the industrial and business world. The Industry 4.0 concept proposes to manage businesses as adaptive systems increasing customer orientation, productivity and quality.

It has to be considered that the Unicist Theory and its applications were a precursor of the Industry 4.0 concept. This theory was developed to understand the evolution of adaptive entities and to manage adaptive systems and environments.

As the previous industrial revolutions, Industry 4.0 coexists with the previous stages, providing a significant competitive advantage for those who enter this stage.

Unicist Artificial Intelligence Tools

The Evolution of Intelligent Knowledge Systems

Unicist artificial intelligence was developed to manage adaptive systems and adaptive environments. It is a core tool when dealing with the concept of “Industry 4.0” applied to businesses.

Unicist AI allows monitoring adaptive solutions by using the unicist logic that emulates the intelligence that underlies nature. It provides a tool for root cause management, unicist business strategy building and conceptual management.

When dealing with big data, it is complemented with neural networks to develop reliable big data analytics.

The unicist artificial intelligence allows developing monitors to manage business intelligence, business strategy and marketing and designing business functions and business objects. It also allows managing the root causes of business processes and emulating and supporting the development of solutions in the mind of deciders.

Developing Structural Business Solutions

The Unicist Root Cause Management System is an application of the Unicist Business Strategy that allows managing adaptive environments and systems by using fundamentals and emulating the intelligence of nature. It is a strategic approach to problem solving.

This approach deals with the fundamentals that underlie business functions and processes to develop maximal strategies to develop growth and minimum strategies to ensure the functionality of the processes. This approach allows transforming business problems into structural solutions.

Application Fields

Unicist Conceptual Design Groups

The implementation of root cause management works with:

Business Intelligence: This module allows defining the information that is necessary to build competitive intelligence, critical intelligence and structural intelligence.

Business Strategy: This module allows finding the root causes that influence the development of businesses to design growth strategies.

Market Lab: This module allows managing the root causes of buying processes to increase the speed of market expansion or solve existing problems.

Business Processes: This module allows managing the root causes of business processes to define them or solve existing problems.

These implementation groups are led by people who manage the unicist strategic approach to business problems integrating fundamentals with technical aspects. The members of the groups manage the unicist methodology for complex problem solving.

Business Intelligence Module based on Root Causes

Business Intelligence

The Unicist Root Cause management for Business Intelligence is based on the use of unicist technologies that allow defining the information that is necessary to build competitive intelligence, critical intelligence and structural intelligence.

• Unicist Competitive Intelligence provides the information to monitor the competitive advantages.

• Unicist Critical Intelligence gives access to the information that deals with opportunities and risk avoidance.

• Unicist Structural Intelligence provides the information of the organizational performance of the company.

Business Strategy Module based on Root Causes

Business Growth Strategy

This module allows finding the root causes that influence the development of businesses to design growth strategies. On the one hand, this approach is based on the driving fundamentals that make growth possible and the development of maximal strategies to grow and minimum strategies to ensure survival. On the other hand, it defines the critical mass to ensure growth driven by the credibility, aesthetics and influence of the business.

The unicist standard of the fundamentals, necessary to achieve results, is provided by us.

Market Lab Module based on Root Causes

Product Image

This module allows managing the root causes of buying processes to increase the speed of market expansion or to solve existing problems. It is based on the fundamentals that drive the expansion of markets defined by the influential market propositions, the aesthetics of their benefit and their credibility. On the other hand, it deals with the first-choice positioning by managing the subjective value, the differentiation and the need satisfaction of the value propositions.

The unicist standard of the fundamentals, necessary to achieve results, is provided by us.

Business Processes Module based on Root Causes

Business and IT Architecture

This module allows managing the root causes of business processes to define them or solve existing problems. It is based on the fundamentals of the client centered management model that define the client orientation, the added value assurance and the results assurance. On the other hand, it is based on a personalized organization model to ensure quality based on the integration of efficacy and efficiency.

The unicist standard of the fundamentals, necessary to achieve results, is provided by us.

Implementation & Pilot Tests

Unicist Destructive Testing

The implementation process of unicist technologies is developed using unicist concepts and fundamentals to define the root causes of the problems that are being solved and the root drivers of the solutions. Pilot tests are developed as destructive and non-destructive tests that drive the reflection processes to find the root causes of problems. The R&D groups, integrated with members of the clients, use a prototyper provided by The Unicist Research Institute. If needed, the development of the solution can be outsourced to a Partner of the Unicist Confederation.

Unicist Teaching Hospital in Business

Unicist Educational Platform

The Unicist Reflection Driven Learning System is an educational platform to give access to the unicist technologies that are needed to manage the root causes of businesses. The participants of these programs are managers, leaders and high potentials of an organization that learn to manage the solution building processes that are developed with other members of the organization. A “Teaching Hospital” is based on an action-reflection-action process to transform problems into structural solutions. The programs of the system are based on virtual collaboration to simplify and optimize the time invested by the participants.
