Effectiveness Efficiency Productivity Profitability Reliability Renewability

Unified technology is an important design concept for building systems using technologies that interact with users and their environments. The best design requires a systematic approach to apply this concept based on the following six prime qualities of an optimal system. With measurable parameters, monitoring each quality should be an integral part of the system, especially for larger systems.


Continue to unify them on a software level...


1) Effectiveness and Efficiency: To be effective and efficient, the system must produce intended effects within expected response times according to parameters specified in the design. After factoring in the time and efforts into the formula for computing effectiveness, we monitor cost-effectiveness to maintain the efficiency of the system.


2) Productivity and Profitability: For an effective and efficient system to be productive, its users must be able to control the system with minimal learning periods and optimal operating environments. When a system is productive, the running cost depends mostly on personnel and management expenses, leading to a simpler, reliable way to predict profitability


Software applications need to be installed to drive data exchanges among these machines with some modifications when necessary. At least one of these machines should have sufficient computing capabilities to serve for this purpose.

In designing the software, it is imperative to analyze the unified system thoroughly for possible "emergent properties" that are extra but useful functions if handled properly by the the installed applications.

These extra functions must also be tested for effectiveness. In our illustrated example, we can find at least three additional capabilities. Could you see them above?


3) Reliability and Renewability: These are two core qualities of systems designed based on unified technology with modular components. The modules must go through rigorous tests to communicate well with one another. We program them to have overlapping functions so that one component can take over a failed module that can be replaced or upgraded
