REGULATION (Self) 1)2)4)
Regulation that arises from the nature of the constituent parts of the system and their interplay.
Self-regulation is related to the complementarity and the satisfactory integration of parts or subsystems in the system.
It implies the co-variance of the systems functions and, normally, the existence of hierarchic control and of a central control subsystem.
The capacity of self-regulation endows the system with a degree of autonomy, within the specific and differentiated limits it embraces.
In human systems as enterprises, organizations, cultures, etc… any modification of functions or subsystems or relations with the environment should be carefully studied and planned, in order to avoid deep perturbations or even destruction of the self-regulation ability.
