The Root Cause Management System as a Catalyst

The unicist root case management catalyzes the development of solutions for adaptive business processes and is based on the knowledge of their concepts and fundamentals that define the root causes of their functionality.

The unicist evolutionary approach is the generic catalyst that emulates the intelligence and evolution of nature using unicist artificial intelligence and allows managing the unified field of business functions and processes.

The unicist root cause management system introduces the management of concepts and fundamentals that work as a catalysts to improve business processes that allows increasing the productivity and quality of adaptive business processes.

The Use of Unicist Expert Systems to Develop Solutions

The management of business adaptiveness is a paradigm shift introduced by the 4th Industrial Revolution. This drove to the development of the Unicist Expert Systems to manage the unified fields and fundamentals of business processes to develop solutions in adaptive environments.

These systems provide an intelligent participative tool to manage the unified field of the business processes to increase their adaptability, productivity, quality and customer orientation.

The Unicist Expert Systems were developed at The Unicist Research Institute using the knowledge-base generated by more than 5,000 researches developed in the field of social, business and individual evolution.

There are systems available for each category of business function, which allow generating solutions that manage the root causes of the problems and developing the catalysts needed to ensure results in adaptive environments.

The Unicist Root Cause Management System includes:

1. Root Cause Finder

This module provides the methodology to find and deal with triggering causes, limit causes and root causes to develop solutions for problems in adaptive business environments.

The discovery that the functionality of the concepts and fundamentals that underlie business functions define their root causes provided the framework for the management of root causes of business processes.

The R&D process on business functions allowed finding the concepts and fundamentals that define the unified field of their functionality and developing a knowledge base to solve business problems.

Its predecessor was Dr. Ishikawa with the root cause diagram that manages fundamentals to deal with the root causes of manufacturing processes.

2. Conceptual Design Module

The Unicist Conceptual Design module 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.

This module allows designing processes, projects, systems and solutions in adaptive environments that require managing the concepts involved to ensure the results to be obtained. This conceptual design module ensures the functionality of a solution.

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

3. Business Objects Builder

This module builds business objects, using the conceptual knowledge base of business objects categories.

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

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

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

4. Quality Assurance Module

The quality assurance module defines the necessary quality assurance for the processes that are being designed.

Elements included in a Quality Assurance System:

  1. Plan “B”
  2. Redundant Systems
  3. Alarm System
  4. Processes with redundancies
  5. Stop System (stoppage/halt)
  6. Control System
  7. Self-repairing/recovery System
  8. Alternative Systems

The purpose of quality assurance is to always have an alternative system to develop any activity. Adaptive processes require using quality assurance to manage the feedback from the environment and ensure the generation of value.

5. Pilot Testing Module

The pilot testing module uses two different tests:

  1. To validate the limits of the functionality of processes and objects.
  2. To confirm the functionality of specific actions.

The testing of root cause solutions for business processes requires making multiple applications in different segments to ensure their functionality.

Pilot tests are developed as destructive and non-destructive tests that drive the reflection processes to find the root causes of problems and confirm the functionality of the solutions.

The Pilot testing groups, integrated with members of the clients, use the prototyper provided by The Unicist Research Institute.


The installation of the Root Cause Management System begins with the development of a one day virtual “clinic”, with up to 21 participants, where a real case is solved using the unicist evolutionary approach. This clinic is divided into two parts:

  1. The transfer of the basics of the technologies included in the system
  2. The solution of a real case using these technologies

This allows confirming the functionality and simplicity of the unicist approach.

The Root Cause Management System is installed as a prototype, that allows building the system, and works on the cloud where the collaborative work of the system takes place.

It includes the fundamentals of the business functions and processes, as well as all the modules of the system.


The system includes an external counseling process to support the solutions that are being developed and ensure the functionality of the pilot tests.

It provides support for the solution of complex problems, based on the knowledge of the conceptual structure of the solution.

It allows building structural solutions where there is a need for managing the root causes of the problems.

The counseling process has been designed to support the introduction of changes.

This external counseling process is based on specific counseling support or the development of solutions in one-day virtual clinics working with the users.

The Context:
The Paradigm Shift of the 4th Industrial Revolution

The 4th Industrial Revolution introduced the need of having a conceptual mindset to manage the possibilities opened by adaptive business processes. It requires going beyond the systemic mindset introduced by the 3rd Industrial Revolution.

Industrial Revolution Mindset

This paradigm shift includes:

  1. The management of the unified field of business processes to develop a superior level of productivity.
  2. The use of maximal strategies to foster growth and minimum strategies to ensure results.
  3. The use of catalysts to ensure the synchronicity of adaptive processes.
  4. The use of conceptual segmentation to manage the root causes of buying processes to ensure customer orientation.
  5. The management of the root causes of business processes to ensure quality.

The unicist evolutionary approach to the 4th Industrial Revolution increases the speed of business growth and ensures their profitability and sustainability.
