The Cognitive Basis of Systems Integration

Show Summary Details


Argues that the strategic control over the technological and commercial evolution of complicated multi‐technological platforms (families of products) calls for a deep control of the processes of systems integration. Aims to define the key elements of the cognitive nature of process of systems integration and provides an epistemological reflection on personal and social knowledge. It is argued that the meta‐process of systems integration is first of all integration of knowledge: a process of processes that require a powerful control of knowledge development.
