Unicist Conceptual Design

Unicist Conceptual Design is one of the pillars of the Unicist Conceptual Management Model. The development of processes, projects, systems and solutions in adaptive environments requires managing the concepts involved in order to ensure the results to be obtained. The conceptual design ensures the functionality of a solution.

Unicist conceptual design manages the root-causes of problems and the root-drivers of solutions. It becomes necessary to ensure results in adaptive environments by managing the fundamentals of the solutions, defining the necessary functions that are integrated as a unified field and ending with the definition of a dynamic process architecture.

Unicist concepts and fundamentals define the root-causes of problems and are the root-drivers of solutions. They allow defining what is possible to be achieved and developing the maximal and minimum strategic actions and business objects to make it happen.

This process includes the definition of roles, business objects and maximal and minimum synchronic actions to ensure the achievement of results.

Benefits of the use of Unicist Conceptual Design

a. +30% of complex project cost saving due to:
1. the use of researched functional conceptual structures
2. the process entropy inhibition due to the management of the structure of the fundamentals
3. the building of reusable business objects

b. 99,5% of results assurance due to:
1. the use of max. and min. strategy actions
2. the use of business objects
3. knowledge resource management
4. the functional quality assurance systems
5. the development of destructive tests

c. 80% reduction of maintenance and improvement costs due to:
1. the repair and improvement of the business objects
2. the functionality of quality assurance

The Basics.

A. Conceptual design requires knowing the concepts involved in a function and/or process.

B. These concepts are defined by the unicist ontology of the functions that define their nature.

C. The Unicist Conceptual Design Technology provides the unicist ontological structures of the concepts of a function and/or process and uses the information of the input to develop the conceptual design of the solution.

The purpose of conceptual design is to define the process architecture of the solution. To make this solution possible, it is necessary to be able to emulate it in mind.

Emulating in mind requires envisioning the final picture of the process and the results that will be achieved. This requires having the knowledge of the fundamentals of the process and a solution thinking approach that allows building the solution. The emulation of the solution becomes possible if the conceptual knowledge of the solution is available.

The conceptual knowledge requires managing the ontogenetic map that defines the functionality of the concept that drives the solution.

Thus conceptual design implies integrating the emulation of the solution and the conceptual knowledge of the process to build the process architecture.

Operational Steps of the Unicist Conceptual Design

1. Using the Unicist Ontologies of the Concepts Involved: This step is based on the description of the conceptual structures that underlie a specific solution provided by the Unicist Librarian.

2. Building the Unified Field of the Solution: This step requires defining the unified field of the function of a solution and their interrelations.

3. Building the Dynamic Process Architecture of the Solution: This step defines the processes, roles and objects included in a solution that allow managing the project.

4. Developing the Destructive Tests: The destructive tests allow confirming the validity of the knowledge used and of the processes defined. The entire process is recycled when the destructive test do not confirm the solutions.

Conceptual design is the approach needed to organize based on the concepts of business processes. It has to be considered, that the structure of concepts is timeless (it exists while the function exists) and cross-cultural, while their operational functionality is environment dependent. As human actions are driven by the concepts they have, the accuracy of conceptual design is the core of business organization in adaptive environments, where efficacy and efficiency need to be integrated.
