The Business of Systems Integration

Oxford University Press

This chapter 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. The chapter aims to define the key elements of the cognitive nature of the 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.

Keywords:   cognitive integration, knowledge processes, coordination of innovation, constructivism, personal knowledge, social knowledge
