Implementation of Cooperative R&D Projects

The Unicist Business Solutions are developed together with the clients based on the unicist technologies and the prototypers provided by The Unicist Research Institute. This is an R&D process that made possible the development of solutions in the field of adaptive business processes, including the use of business objects to accelerate such processes and ensure their quality. This process improvements are developed in a participative way where the leaders of the processes learn to manage the unicist strategic approach to business that emulates the intelligence of nature. The use of prototypers allows working with the first stage of a solution within the first 30 days. As the technologies are provided as a service (TaaS), these R&D projects generate a positive cash flow.

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 Evoution 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.

The Unicist Paradigm Shift: The DNA of Businesses

Unicist Conceptual Management

The discovery of the intelligence that underlies nature allowed emulating it, emulating its organization and emulating its evolution. This drove to the discovery of the structure and functionality of concepts and fundamentals that drive human behavior, define the DNA of organizations and allow managing the root causes of their functionality.

A set of Unicist Knowledge Systems to manage the adaptive aspects of businesses has been developed at TURI. It includes: The Root Cause Management System, the Root Cause Marketing System, the Service Improvement System, the High Potentials’ Education System, The Talent Development System. The knowledge of the Unicist Strategic approach, that emulates the intelligence of nature, is necessary to install these systems.

1) Unicist Intelligent Root Cause Management System

The Unicist Root Cause System

The Unicist System 4.0 is a Knowledge System that was developed to build structural solutions that generate additional value or save costs. 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.

The 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.

2) Unicist Intelligent Root Cause Market Lab System

Unicist Market Labs

The goal of installing a Unicist Root Cause Market Lab is to build a platform that is able to manage the root causes of marketing processes to increase their effectiveness. The R&D process of the Market Lab is based on the installation of a prototyper, provided by TURI, that allows managing the different aspects that are included in the platform. The Market Lab begins to work with the prototyper within the 30 days of the agreement. The Market Lab is installed by the members of the organization of the client that have the responsibility of marketing processes. The leaders of the Market Lab participate in an educational program to learn to manage root causes in marketing. The installation of a Market Lab generates a positive cash-flow because the technologies are provided as a service (TaaS) by The Unicist Research Institute.

3) Unicist Intelligent Service Improvement System

Unicist Service Improvement System

The Unicist Service Improvement Platform is a unicist strategic approach, based on the fundamentals of business processes, that uses the unicist continuous improvement technology to manage object driven improvement processes. Unicist Business Strategy is an extremely simple approach that manages the fundamentals of business processes and emulates the organization of nature. The unicist continuous improvement technology uses “objects” to structure work processes and establishes the operating rules that are functional to each business. The building of objects, management of customer-driven rules, personal motivation and institutionalization are the “hard” elements of the continuous improvement technology.

4) High Potentials´ Education System

Unicist Teaching Hospitals in Business

Unicist Teaching Hospitals in Business provide a strategic approach to managers, leaders and high potentials. They are based on the Unicist Reflection Driven Learning technology that establishes the learning framework to solve the problems the participants manage. The Teaching Hospital uses the Unicist Root Cause Management approach to solve the problems that are being managed and the Unicist Conceptual Design approach to develop the solutions.

5) Unicist Intelligent Talent Development System

Unicist Talent Development

The Unicist Talent Development System is based on the fact that the concepts people have drive their adaptive actions. These concepts define the structure of the talents of an individual and allow considering such talents to define the roles in an organization and to empower them to foster their evolution towards superior levels of functionality. The Unicist Talent Development System includes an assessment system and the possibility of empowering talents using the Unicist Reflection Driven Education approach.

Unicist Root Cause Library

Unicist Root Cause Library

The information of the structure of the concepts and fundamentals included in this library allows managing the root causes of business functions. The root cause library is based on more than 5,000 researches developed at The Unicist Research Institute. It provides the knowledge objects, concepts and fundamentals to build business solutions including strategies, processes, roles and business objects.
