The Use of the Unicist Pilot Testing Method (UPT)

The objective of the UPT is to confirm the validity of a knowledge, methodology or adaptive system. The method was designed to deal with the adaptive aspects of businesses in order to make their design reliable.

Unicist Pilot Tests are a core aspect of any market or organizational laboratories in order to design commercial or organizational processes.

Its purpose is to confirm the functionality of an adaptive system. It requires having the ontogenetic map of the system. What needs to be validated is the functionality (or credibility) zone of the system that has to be defined using its operational and fundamental knowledge.

Their first step is to develop destructive tests, which are homologous to destructive tests in the field of engineering, to define the limits of their functionality. To achieve this it is necessary to experience in homologous fields in order to find the limits of their reliability.

The second step is the development of non-destructive tests to confirm their functionality in the predefined specific field. It requires experiencing in analogous fields which requires having a sound operational knowledge in order to measure the validity of the results obtained.

The use of this method guides the Unicist Reflection methodology to manage complex adaptive systems.

IT Architecture: The Unicist Interface Building Technology

Unicist Interface Building is the starting point of the Unicist IT Architecture in business; it defines the aesthetics of a system. It includes the hardware, software and peopleware aspects to build a natural complementation with the user

The purpose of the interface building is to provide the necessary interactivity with a system. The goal is to integrate systems with their users, like tennis rackets or skis are part of the “body” of their users.

The maximal strategy of an interface requires achieving and extreme level of aesthetics in order to complete the needs of the user. This requires that the system needs to be part of a professional approach to business in order to have a context where the integration is possible.

This makes the system desirable but it also needs to be essentially harmonic with the fundamental drivers of the users’ activities. Both conditions can be given when systems sustain the efficacy of individuals.

This methodology requires the integration of technology and art.
